they were back into the action. If anyone got hit with a dart, they had to go back and touch their base and they were back into play. The object was to try and get the opponents flag without being hit. We used our whole yard, front and back.
Towards the middle of the party we ate and had a break by each boy making miniature marshmallow guns. The boys were awesome. They all helped pick up the marshmallows scattered around the yard. I found the simple directions for the marshmallow guns here. They were about a $1 to make a piece, a perfect take home gift for each friend!
