Boomwackers can be a lot of fun.
There will, of course be a temptation for them to use them on each other. I would encourage implementing this for their culminating performance, however, you must first establish rules of boomwacker ettiquette before encouraging them to turn it into a full contact sport.

There are boomwacker books on the market that you will find easy to use if you have musical training.

I would also suggest that you set a date, such as an assembly at school to perform one or two pieces. This will give them some focus. Have students plan and Choreograph how they will play them for each piece.
You might consider a "traditional straight man" non contact piece, followed by full contact, which will be very entertaining for the audience as long as the contact is tight and not a free for all.
