I wanted to create a simple obstacle course item for the Super Mario Bros birthday party, so I thought of making green pipes for the kids to jump over like Mario and Luigi.
I used old round plastic containers from home for this. They were various sizes so they would be different heights for the kids to jump over.
I wrapped each one in heavy bright green poster board, securing the backs with clear tape.
I also cut another thin strip of poster board to wrap and tape at the top of each pipe, to give them a little bit of depth and a more realistic pipe look.
We lined up them up in a little zig zag pattern and the kids had fun jumping over them over and over and they held up pretty well after getting knocked over a few times.
A few of the poster board strips came slightly loose in the back a few days after the party, so I just secured them back up with thicker clear packing tape. Done!
