We like to have nerf wars in the house and outside, and for a while we’ve talked about making shields. Finally we got around to it.
Caleb cut out a circle from a pizza box.
His idea, not mine. I thought we should have used a larger box, but it was his project. Once he had it cut out, he painted it while I worked on painting my peg people.
For the handle, he sewed a strip of fabric on the back. Sewing through cardboard worked surprisingly well, and I figured it was stronger than tape. My other thought was stapling it, but I couldn’t find the stapler.
After that it was ready to use!
