This party was a welcome change of pace from the Spider-Man world I have been living in for the past six months or so 😉 Mike pulled out his old Super Nintendo a few months ago, and when the boys are good we let them play a little bit of Super Mario. I secretly love it, because while I do not like video games very much, I am not sure anyone can say no to a classic like Mario! You won’t find me getting upset when Jackson asks me to help him beat a level 😉 The boys loved that I did some fun crafts for his Mario Brothers birthday party, and they were so easy!
The DIY Projects
I had the brick plastic leftover from Jackson’s Ninja Turtle party last year, and wrapped square boxes with it to look like the bricks from the video game. The other boxes are just yellow wrapping paper, and I cut the question marks out of construction paper!
The mushrooms were SO easy to make. I purchased a six pack of round mylar balloons online. To assemble, I inflated them with a straw. Then, I cut out white circles on a piece of paper and taped them on top! For the base, I cut and rolled a piece of poster board and taped it with clear tape. They were SO easy and the boys played with them all week long!
Pin The Mustache On The Mario
I am not sure how many more years I have of taking pictures with boy of the boys in our arms. I have been holding Jackson as much as I can lately. Babies don’t keep!
This picture makes me smile so big. Hands full, hearts fuller. These boys are everything I am so lucky to call them mine!
I always love to go down memory lane of old parties. I you liked this Mario Brothers birthday party go ahead and check out past parties below!
