In my family guns, shooting and everything in between is something we all are use too. Something mostly for the boys right? Wrong. Which is why I wanted to be the coolest aunt ever (or so I like to think) and gift my niece Cassidy a Daisy BB Gun. Daisy’ s make some cool Christmas gifts by the way and no BB Guns are not just for boys. Us girls like to have fun too. I decided to make gifting my Daisy a little more fun and creative (more girly you could say) and do a little DIY target for the shooting range AKA back yard.
What we did was really simple. I bought a 16×20 canvas, some markers, glue and of course glitter. Used some plates, bowls and cups to make the circles in the target and drew. It was simple, easy and a fun way to spend time together.
I do have to say we did a fantastic job and I could not be more proud of how
girly awesome it came out. I was however a little sad. You see aunt Erica (me) was a little excited to see her niece shoot her new Daisy that I didn’t let the glue dry all the way before setting up the target. Oops. Making a runny target. SO please if you do this at home please, please wait for the glue to dry. It still made a great target. We just had a little runny glue but made even more fun for a moving target. (hehe I know i’m not really that funny)
Although I knew that my niece has had the proper lessons on how to shoot a BB gun I wanted to let you know that Daisy does educates roughly one million of America’s youth a year through their Ten Lesson Shooting Curriculum about BB gun use and safety (found here). If you do decided that this is the coolest Christmas gift (like I truly think) I would strongly check it out. Daisy’s educational curriculum has been around since 1948.
After gifting and shooting a Daisy i’m now truly convinced that they are the coolest gifts I have ever given and something that fits perfect with our family. If you are looking for some cool Christmas gifts head on over to Academy and pick up your very own Daisy. They make it kinda hard to miss. You can also check out Daisy on Facebook and Twitter.
Daisy has engaged the masses with portable, inflatable BB gun ranges that can be found at major outdoor sporting goods retailers and leading conservation organizations. The majority of those who attend the an outdoor or store event and shoot at the ranges are first-time shooters.
One more thing before you go. I’m giving away an $100 dollar Academy gift card for one lucky winner to go out and get there very own Daisy BB Gun. To enter this giveaway you must live in the US and be 18 years of age. Also just so you know the Gift Card will not arrive before Christmas.
