Super Mario Obstacle Course
Make a crazy obstacle course for party guests to race through.
This can be played in teams relay style or individually with a stop
watch. Set up mazes with large boxes (decorate 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 as many coins as they can. (Make lots of these coins
because you will have to reset them after each player.) Play
tunnels, large plank boards and kiddy pools (they have to jump over) are
all great ideas to set up the course. At the end have a large box
with a picture of Bowser on it. Cut several circular holes in the
Bowser box. Set out three red bean bags or balls (fireballs) that
they have to throw in the Bowser box. Once they have hit Bowser
with three fireballs they can move on. Behind Bowser have a Peach
doll that they must rescue and take back through the maze.
Yoshi's Egg Race
Teams must carry an egg on a spoon without dropping it. The egg
can be real or plastic. If you buy the larger plastic eggs they
are harder to keep on the spoon and it makes the race more challenging.
Make them look like Yoshi's eggs by painting them or simply sticking on
round stickers onto the eggs. This race can be played individually
or as teams. Divide
party guests into teams and give each team a Yoshi egg and a wooden
spoon. Teams must carry the egg on the spoon one by one from where
they start, to the turn around point across the room and then back to
their team. Then they hand off the spoon and the Yoshi egg to the
next player in line and the process is repeated. First team with
all of their members to complete the relay wins. If the egg is
dropped the person must go back to the starting line and begin again.
Golden Coin Treasure Hunt
Before the birthday party cut out 2 inch "coins" from yellow poster board.
Hide them all over the party area. Let the party guests try and
find all the golden coins. When they are all found let them trade
them in for chocolate coins or have prizes worth a certain number of
coins and they can trade them in on prizes.

Super Mario Bros Party Activities
Make Mario and Luigi Hats
Let party guests make their own Mario and Luigi hats. These can be
made easily from red baseball hats. Give each party guest a red
baseball hat and have them cut out a 2" circle from white felt.
Glue the white felt circle to the center of the hat. Then
have them cut out a Red letter "M" about 1 1/2" high and glue it in the
middle of the white circle. You can also buy green baseball hats
to make Luigi caps. These make great party favors!
Let party guests draw on their own Mario Mustache with brown eyeliner or
make one from yarn and double stick tape. Great photo opportunity!
