Who’s ready to kick off summer outdoor activities?! We sure are, and we’re partnering with Duracell to power up our NERF┬áblasters this summer – check out our backyard battle!

Summer Outdoor Activities - have a backyard battle with NERF N-Strike dart blasters! What fun ideas for summer adventures!

What is your favorite outdoor summer activity? We like to do lots of things, but we’ve recently started having fun in our own backyard with NERF dart blasters! We got a hold of a couple of new NERF toys – the┬áThe NERF N-Strike Modulus ECS-10 Blaster and the┬áNERF N-Strike Elite Stryfe Blaster – we had to battle outside to test these out!

With the sun shining outside during these long summer days, the kids insisted that we break out the blasters, darts, and Duracell batteries and get out on the battlefield! My 9 year old son opened the N-Strike Modulus ECS-10 blaster, pulled it out of the box, unscrewed the battery compartment and installed the Duracell AA batteries.

There are a bunch of different pieces that attach to the NERF N-Strike Modulus, kids can customize their blasters with 30 different combinations! Now this kid is ready for our backyard battle, a fun favorite summer outdoor activities!

Little sister used the smaller┬áNERF N-Strike Elite Stryfe Blaster – but don’t be fooled by it’s size. This baby shoots up to 75 feet, packing a powerful punch to blast targets far away! This one is also battery powered, so I helped her install the Duracell AA batteries and she was ready for battle!

Outside, we have a grass are with a bunch of trees, bushes, and an old tree stump. We created a backyard battle game – the kids had to protect the tree stump, which was their castle, and I was determined to take it from them! Evade the darts and don’t get hit – if you do get hit 3 times, you’re frozen. If I, the enemy, make it to the castle, it’s MINE – I will conquer it!

I conquered their castle twice, and they blasted me away 3 times – we had so much fun! Create your own NERF backyard battle by flipping patio tables, hiding behind chairs, planters and trees, use the garden hose as a boundary line – the options are endless!
