**Caution – I’m happy for my kids to play this game unsupervised and just get on with it – but you know your child best and with young children you may want to make sure they wear safety goggles, don’t aim into other peoples faces, ping each other with the elastic band or get it twisted around their arms/wrists etc and also sometimes the elastic band can snap onto hand and sting a little…**
