Super Mario Birthday Party Ideas!
The Mario Brothers are a huge hit with both kids and adults of all ages! Their many popular video games have created a huge fan base - So don’t be surprised if your child wants a Mario birthday party!
Games: Make a crazy obstacle course - Every Super Mario Bros. game is in someway about overcoming obstacles, so let the kids go through their very own Super Mario themed obstacle course. This can be played in teams relay style or individually with a stop watch. My best advice when coming to teams at a party is to keep it totally random by picking out names out of a hat. Maybe have "Team Luigi" and "Team Mario" written out on the pieces of paper. After they choose, then each kid on the Mario team will get a red hat or t-shirt, while each kid on the Luigi team will get a green hat or t-shirt. Set up mazes with large boxes (with a brick pattern) where players have to go around and through them. Tie several large paper gold coins hanging from a tree with breakaway string (or somewhere high) and place a small trampoline under them so they have to jump and grab coins. Play tunnels, egg races (yoshi), bean bag throws(fireballs)
Activities: Mario Kart Competition - If your party is indoors or space is an issue, have a video game party! Host your very own Super Mario Kart Competition!
Party Food: Mario and Luigi are Italian, so serve pizza, pasta, bread sticks and string cheese sticks. I also think of a big bowl of spaghetti and meatballs with a serving of garlic bread. Yum! You can never go wrong with that menu for kids. For dessert you can serve some Mario Mushroom Cupcakes – Use a white cake mix to bake the cupcakes. Then cover with red (or green) frosting and top with upside down white chocolate chips for the spots. A really neat party snack or a loot bag treat are sugar cookies shaped like stars and frosted with yellow icing to look like Invincible Stars.
Party Favors: Chocolate coins and Glow Stars no doubt! Ebay is great for finding Mario themed party favors. I did a quick search and found pencils, figures, labels, candy wrappers, tattoos etc etc. Some really fantastic favors, not to mention invites and cake decorating supplies too! Don't forget the licensed favors and all the usual suspects like stickers, candy, gum, glow sticks, bubbles and all that fun dollar store stuff!
