goblies® throwable paintballs

It’s summertime, so get out there and have some colorful fun with the newest craze, Goblies® throwable paintballs! Check out our instructions where we’ll show you how to add numbers to your T-shirt and play for points (extra points for messiness, of course!).
Step 1
Project Notes: Before you begin this project, be sure to read all warnings and recommendations on the Goblies® packaging:
   -  Do not allow children under the age of 6 to play with Goblies® throwable paintballs.
   -  There is a choking hazard warning on the packaging; this product is not intended for children under the age of 3.
   -  Adult supervision is recommended.
   -  Do not intentionally aim the paintballs at faces or pets (or pets’ faces).
   -  These paintballs are not for indoor use; play with them outdoors, on a surface that does not become slippery when wet.
   -  Use eye protection and wear play clothes; see package for instructions on how to wash clothes in the event they’re splashed with washable Goblies® paint.
   -  When you’re not using them, store paintballs in the liquid included in their pouch to keep them from drying out.
   - Goblies® throwable paintballs may stain clothing. Please choose clothing accordingly.
 
 
ADULT: Before you get started, pre-wash the T-shirt, but don’t use any fabric softener. Once the shirt’s dry, iron out any wrinkles. 
Step 2
Insert the cardboard T-shirt form inside the shirt, and smooth out any wrinkles or folds. 
Step 3
Arrange the stencils for the numbers 1-5 across the front of the shirt and tape them into place.

TIP: The stenciled numbers will be the targets when this game is played, so be sure to spread them out, placing the higher value numbers in more difficult-to-reach spots. This will make the game more challenging for your participants!
Step 4
Pour a puddle of each paint color onto your paper plate (or palette paper). Dip a foam Spouncer™ into one of the puddles, then brush off a little excess. Using quick up-and-down motions, dab the Spouncer™ onto the open part of the stencil numbers. When a number is completely covered with paint, remove the stencil and set it aside. Repeat with different paint colors to stencil each number, and then let the paint dry completely.

TIP: Want to make this game a high-scoring shootout? You can add more numbers by replacing any of the stencils on the shirt and repeating Step 4. 
Step 5
That was fun! Now it’s time for even more! Here’s how to play the game:
   -  Assign each player a different color of Goblies® throwable paintballs
   -  Give the players a countdown and/or time to hide.
   -  When you sound the starting bell (whistle, yell, etc.), players will throw the paintballs at each other, aiming for the numbers on each other’s shirts. Higher numbers mean more points, so aim carefully!
   -  Once all the paintballs are gone, add up the paintball hits for each color, using the numbers on each shirt to count points per hit.
   -  Announce the winner, celebrate, wash the paint from the shirts, then get some more Goblies®throwable paintballs and play again!
