My son's fourth birthday party (last week) was awesome. Even the parents had a great time. I made all the games and a lot of the party favors. Hope you guys like it as much as my son and his friends did!
Yoshi Eggs! Real eggs filled with confetti for the Yoshi's Egg Toss game. Got this idea from a video on YouTube.
Bowser after the eggs were thrown in his face!
Yours Truly leading the kids in a game of "Shy Guy Says" - like Simon says, but with red and white paper plates decorated like shy guys. Each kid got one and had to follow the rules, but when Shy Guy doesn't say to move and you move then you're out.
Some of us playing the game.
You can see in this picture the Mario visors that I made out of $1 visors. I also made Luigi and Princess Peach for the girls. The girl in the yoshi shirt is wearing a mustache above her lips. That mustache was sticky foam paper that was stuck to blo-pops so they looked like Mario suckers. (another idea from you tube.)
Bomb-omb! We used it to play hot potato. I turned my back while the kids passed the bomb and when I yelled "BOMB-OMB!" whoever was holding it pretended to blow up. They then got to yell Bomb-omb. The winner got the Bomb-omb. Made from a decorative ball that I bought at Wal-Mart on clearance. I sanded it and re-painted it.
Pirahna Plant Table Decoration
Boo Balloon Pop - Toy coins inside the balloons just like the game!
Question Block plushie toss:
Assault Turnips for the girls to throw: (Each girl got to take one home)
Fireballs for the boys to throw: (Each boy got to take one home)
Party Bags (hand drawn)
Crayons with sticker paper over the boxes and hand drawn images on both sides. I left them blank for the kids to color. (The kids colored their own party bags while they waited for the other kids to arrive.)
Pin the Mustache on Mario! (He looks so weird without one!)
I never claimed to be a cake decorator! I ordered a blank cake from the bakery and attempted to personalize it myself. Oh well, my son's 4, he doesn't care for now.
And the other kids were too young to mind. I didn't know black gel icing was so runny...
