This game was a hit and so easy to set up!
First, I bought brown balloons, blew them up, and filled them with little gifts -- things like Super Mario tattoos and the decorative stars I made for the party.
Next, I used a sharpie to draw eyebrows and angry mouths directly on the balloons.
Then I drew eyes and teeth on white printer paper and glued them on -- all you need is Elmer's glue.
To keep the goombas in place, I glued each balloon onto a white paper plate, but that is not essential.
The boys LOVED the mayhem as they stomped on the dozens of goombahs on our driveway. A great way to make the video game come to life.
