Nerf guns like to peg darts at unsuspecting targets (parents), so a peg board seems a fitting home for them. (via Inspiration Made Simple)

Rail-y the troops

Another option is to hang the toys from S hooks and rails. These are from IKEA and your kiddo’s collection will look fine and Scandi when the zombies arrive! (via She’s Crafty)

Extend their shelf life

A couple of IKEA shelves, some acoustic foam and draw liners are all you need to keep unruly Nerf guns in line. Of course, some colour-changing lights never go astray. (via Pinterest)
