For at least a year (maybe two… it honestly runs together with the babies and pregnancies), I’ve wanted to create a Weapons Wall for our boys and all their weapons. We just have so many, and storing them in a “Weapons Box” is great and all, but we’d rather actually see them and get to admire them everyday 😀 .
Can you tell we live in Texas? LOL ❤
Anyway… this was a very easy project. Just gather all your weapon toys, lay them out so you can see them, categorize them, plan where they should go on a wall (or several walls if you have enough), and the put them up!
It’s a little dark because I had to do this at night when they were sleeping.
First, I planned out where the suit of armor would go…
This is actually the pieces from the Armor of God. The Helmet of Salvation, the Breastplate of Righteousness, the Belt of Truth, the Gospel of Peace leg armor, the Shield of Faith, and the Sword of the Spirit – which is the Word of God.
Also… there’s Thor’s hammer, for our Little Viking 😉
And we have a bigger size (and more realistic) ancient looking helmet for our oldest.
Everything is hanging, that way it’s easy to pull off and put back on. If anyone has any ideas to use something other than tacks, I’d love to know!
Something I really love is all the knives they have… especially the Bowie knife, from James Bowie, one of the wild and crazy heroes of the Alamo battle and Texas Revolution. What an amazing man he was! He’s remembered as one of the fiercest fighting men of Texas history.
Doing this also helped us realize they need more guns. And I haven’t figured out how to hang the nerf guns the oldest has 🙂 so they’re still in his room. He also has really awesome laser guns that help him better his aim (to near perfection)! But those would need more heavy duty stuff to figure out how to hang.
What’s missing also is their swords and light sabers… we may move the alphabet and start more on that side going down.
The bow, arrows, and quiver toys are so much fun! They really work! And my oldest told me he and my mom made that quiver together ❤ . How cool is that?!
Apparently recently in the UK, time has stopped over the young Prince George playing like a normal boy would… with a weapon. LOL
“Completely tone deaf of Kate… to give Prince George a toy gun. Doesn’t she read the papers in her own country with all the gun deaths? If the Duchess of Sussex had done this, she would be excoriated in the media! Lucky George isn’t black or police would have shot him,” one user wrote.
Another chimed in, “#PrinceGeorge playing with a toy gun! Unelievable! #KensingtonPalace shame!
“This isn’t okay anymore… My American side here, biased maybe b/c of everyday #gunviolence in USA, but my British side agrees. No child in this day and age should look at any gun as a fun toy. This looks far too real,” someone else wrote.
And that… is why they’re losing their country to Muslims.
Anyway, I’m sure there are much better weapons walls out there, but this is just our version and it was definitely a fun project!
If anyone has ideas for how to hang nerf guns… that may just be our next thing!
