We came up with an amazing game you will want to play. It’s called basketball jammies.

First, you need 12 players, six kids for each team. You need a guard, a center, shooting guard, a small forward and a power forward for each team. The extra player is the Nerf gun controller.

You follow the same rules as NBA basketball, but there’s a twist. The first twist is you wear pajamas (slippers, too). The second twist is the Nerf gun controller can target players on the opposite team. If you get hit with a Nerf dart, you are out.

The game is very fast, and besides watching your opponent, you are also trying not to get hit! We do this every once in a while in our school gym, and it is just silly fun.
