I'm still working on Mario stuff for L's party. Here's the latest installation:
I was about to throw out a big popcorn can from Christmas, when I realized it looked a little like a warp pipe from the Mario games. Aha, a game!
After cleaning it up, I gave it a couple of coats of acrylic paint, and a coat of sealer. I spray painted some dollar store whiffle balls black, as "Ba Bombs." We'll have a ball tossing game as one of the party activities. After the party, L can use it to hold toys or as a trash can in his Mario themed room.
I also made a couple of "Yoshi eggs" to put out in the yard. I got the paper mache eggs on sale at Hobby Lobby, and painted 'em, and sealed 'em. Easy, and cute.
