So I am not a huge fan of video games. I am strict with my kids when it comes to any electronic time, TV or video games. Over Christmas we decided to get the Wii for our family, my son loves it. So for his sixth birthday party, we had a Mario Kart Wii party for his kindergarten class. I knew I didn’t want the kids to play video games the whole party, but I also knew it would be fun to have that as part of the party. Isaiah and his friends had a great time. Here is a look.
This year decorations were simple. We covered our table with large white butcher paper and drew a race track on it. We added Mario Kart charaters and it was set to go!
My husband made this wonderful cake! It only took over two hours, 2 cakes, and four cans of frosting!
The first activity was to make their own Mario Kart snack out of food. Homemade buns, pretzel sticks, cheese cubes, grapes, and blueberries.
Although it was mostly just the kindergarten class, we couldn't forget Ayla and their cousins.
Since the Mario Kart is a race car racing game, the kids raced through obstacle courses, and enjoyed doing relay races.
Isaiah jumped for joy as he cheered his team on. Big smiles all day!
Then they came back inside and made race car driver shirts. This also served as their party favor.
Then it was finally Wii time! We had four kids playing the Wii at a time.
While some were playing the Wii, the other could watch or race their own Mario Kart characters down our hall by blowing the characters (we printed off from on line) with a straw.
They also had the option of building their own Mario Kart racer with Legos and racing it around a tape track.
We opened presents after everyone left since we ran out of time!
