If you’ve got a video game lover with a March birthday, you should definitely throw a Super Mario Bros birthday party.

March is National Craft Month, so it only makes sense to throw a craft-filled birthday party. Set up a station full of basic crafting supplies including scissors, glue, paper, and some paint.
