I love everything about old school gaming. Those pixels basically sums up my childhood in the 90s. And who reigns icon of retro gaming other than the ol' Mario himself! *insert Super Mario Bros. opening theme*
Kids know Mario and friends from Wii's version of Mario's Kart, Super Smash Bros., and even the newest version of Super Mario, but for an old timer like me, nothing beats the original, not that I don't enjoy the new one. But the 80s and 90s Mario is so nostalgic! And more hard to beat.
So today's party is tailored for a 10 year old birthday boy. Here is the goodie bag! I made the printable coins for treasure hunting game, chocolate bar wrapped in printable Mario and Luigi's face, printable trademark question mark box filled with gold coins (duh, of course!), a cookie cup disguised as piranha plant's pipe, and a scratch off tickets to win some prizes!
I also did some stickers by hand using store bought circle stickers sheet, it was so much fun (and affordable too). Big Sis G got to color the stickers and she's doing a great job as you can see here.
I also did some background for photo booth. And of course it's almost mandatory for today's party to have some photo props.
Here they are in action!
Not pictured here is a home made piranha plant pinata, he's got down really bad in no time :)
Do you need any Mario themed photo props? Should I share the printables here?
Tell me what you think!
