Taking my boys to see the Super Mario movie was an amazing experience. As soon as they saw their favorite characters on the big screen, their eyes lit up with excitement and wonder. They laughed, cheered, and thoroughly enjoyed every moment of the film. The best part was watching them enjoy the show.

After the movie, their love for all things Mario only grew stronger. They headed straight to the library to find Mario books and games, and we spent countless hours reading, crafting, and having Mario-themed fun. It was heartwarming to see them so passionate and engaged, and I was grateful to be able to share in their joy.

Overall, it was a wonderful family experience that we will always cherish. The Super Mario movie sparked a new interest in my boys and brought us closer together. I can’t wait to see where their love for Mario takes them next! Here are some of the fun things we did this past week.

The Super Mario Bros. movie book was an absolute joy to read! It perfectly captured the adventurous spirit of the Mario movie, and the illustrations were stunning. This book obviously can’t retell the whole movie in a short book but my kids loved it. As a long-time fan of the games, I was thrilled to see my favorite characters brought to life in a whole new way. It’s a must-read for any Mario fan, young or old.

Mario and Luigi Race Craft

Making a craft where Mario and Luigi race is going to be so much fun! Not only is it a great way to encourage creativity and imagination in kids, but it also brings to life the exciting world of Super Mario in a hands-on way. Once the racers are complete, I can’t wait to watch my kids engage in friendly competition as they race their creations against each other. It’s going to be a blast to see their imaginations run wild as they come up with new ways to play with their Mario and Luigi racers. Overall, crafting with a Super Mario theme is an amazing way to spend quality time with kids while also fostering their creativity and imagination. I’m excited to see what kind of fun and exciting creations we can come up with together!
