Nintendo fans will love playing the all-new Super Mario Party game, even more fun when playing in your very own “powered up” shirt! We’re sharing game info as well as directions for making these cute shirts!
Super Mario Party
The popular Mario Party series of games just arrived on the Nintendo Switch for the first time this fall (huge thanks to Nintendo for sending us a copy to check out) with the release of Super Mario Party on October 5, 2018. It’s the newest in the long-running Mario Party series of games, featuring the fan favorite “board game mode” which goes back to 4-player basics.Players take turns and race across the board in search of Stars. Plus, the original board game style has also been kicked up a notch with deeper strategic elements like character specific Dice Blocks. All in all, there’s 80 new minigames that’ll have use using your Joy-Con™ controllers in fun and clever ways.
Doesn’t it look like a blast?! There’s so many fun options and I especially love that it’s a 4-player game. With 3 boys, the 4-player games are our favorites – so that way it’s something the family can enjoy together! I mean, how fun is River Survival?! Co-op mode is perfect to cut down on the sibling rivalry during the game too since they HAVE to work together! Yes!!!
You know what else is fun to do together? Wear matching shirts! I made these fun “powered up” shirts for the boys and they are perfect for any kind of Super Mario fun!
Powered Up DIY Mario Shirts
I used my Cricut Maker to do these shirts, but any electronic cutting machine will do. You’ll need to find your desired Nintendo images to use for the shirts (just do a quick search and get the image files you’d like to use). Since those aren’t my designs, I can’t share those here. But I do have the “Powered Up” file since I created that. Just download (or screenshot) this image to then import into your Design Space area to create a cut file for your shirts. Once you have the images and files imported, you’ll create shirts by doing layers with your heat transfer vinyl/iron-on. If you need help visualizing that part, check out the tutorial for these Christmas shirts here. In total, I used 5 different colors – red, white, black, yellow, and green. The yellow was actually a flocked heat transfer material (just because it’s what I had on hand), which added some fun texture. But you can really use any heat transfer/iron-on materials you like! The end result is adorable – perfect for some Super Mario fun! The shirts and the new Super Mario Party game would both make GREAT presents for your favorite Mario fans! So be sure to pick up your copy of the game today! Happy playing!
