DIY: Squirt Gun Shooting Range
To make the squirt gun shooting range, I taped the pie pans to our deck. I think trees or fences could work as well. Then we stood back and shoot.
Well, some people didn't like the stand back idea!
After refilling the squirt guns a few times, the novelty of the shooting range began to wane. To see if I could reinterest the boys, I decided to create some paper plate targets. I thought they would be better able to see where they had shot on the target with a paper plate. I also added point values. If your kids are as competitive as mine, make sure you add point values. They were racking up 1,000s of points!
For added fun, we tried using some water dyed with food coloring too. I don't think our water was colored enough, but if you can get it dark enough, it could be fun. Maybe each kid could have their own color?
I hope you are taking time with your little ones to enjoy the summer. I'm off to another shoot out at the squirt gun range!
