Thanks to our friends from Nintendo for inviting us to Nintendo HQ!
Have a Super Mario Bros obsessed child and want a fun accessory to keep them warm this winter? create your own DIY Super Mario Bros star gloves at home. They take just a few minutes to make and work perfectly to customize an inexpensive pair of gloves.
Over the last year, Mario and Luigi have made their way into our home. For Craig and I, they hold lots of nostalgia. Some of my favorite childhood memories involve playing with my older sister, battling Bowser together. For Kayla, they represent a new found interest in technology and she finds it fascinating that Craig and I have kept certain skills from the 80’s and 90’s (hello Konami code!)
Kayla and I recently headed back to Nintendo HQ in Seattle and knew we were in for a weather change from our usual 70+ and sunny San Diego weather. I treated us to matching faux fur lined parkas and set out to make Kayla a pair of gloves to keep her little paws warm with a Nintendo twist.
Whenever we go on a trip I surprise her with a few treats and fun things to keep her busy during our travel time. Our friends from Nintendo sent her New 2DS XL to check out and I bought this super cute Super Mario version of Uno to play on our trip. I found her Mario and Luigi bean bag toys from last year, added in some Haribo gummies, a book, and a few other snacks.
The gloves were my own little homemade touch. I created this Super Mario star file you can download and use with the cutting machine of your choice. I have this one and use it for SO many projects! This is the perfect yellow heat transfer vinyl to use for this project. I found these tech gloves for kids which come in a pack of 3 for just $4. Which means when your child inevitably loses a pair, it won’t be a big deal and you’ll have backups. For the perfec
If you’re feeling extra Mario and Luigi love, you can grab these cute slippers too. Mario is Kayla’s favorite and Luigi is mine. I couldn’t put my finger on why Luigi has always been my favorite until we were at Nintendo HQ and I overheard one of the long time employees telling a child that Luigi was his favorite because he had an older brother who was always player number one, making him Luigi by default. That stuck with me. I was the little sister. Of course that’s why Luigi was my go to guy!
Whether you’re a Mario or Luigi by birth ranking or by choice, I think there is plenty here to keep you and your kids warm, snuggly and entertained this holiday season.
