Exploding Easter Egg Nerf Gun Targets

Today my 11 year old son had to stay home from school because he woke up with pink eye.  Bummer day…or so we thought!  Cleaning the house was at the top of my agenda, but then Micah started playing around with his newest Nerf Gun, the Nerf Centurion.  He grabbed some duct tape and popsicle sticks and rigged up a hanging target to shoot at.   Somewhere in the middle of house cleaning and target practice, Micah and I came up with this super fun activity that we like to call “Exploding Easter Egg Nerf Gun Targets.”

Did you know that some plastic Easter eggs have two little holes at the bottom?  Well these holes came in handy for today’s activity and so did the duct tape and little sister’s bag of sequins.  Check out our tutorial about how we made these explosive Easter eggs!  They may be messy…but they sure are fun!

Helpful Tip:  If your plastic eggs do not have holes (2 of ours did not), you can easily make holes by hammering a nail through the bottom of your eggs (from the inside) two times about 1/2 inch apart.  I used a wood block under my eggs while hammering so they didn’t crack.
