Often times, we pick a food that relates to whatever game that we are playing. For instance, since Mario is the main character, we would have macaroni and cheese and call it “Mario’s Mac and Cheese”. One of the great things about my sons is that they are not complicated. I can change the name of the dish without changing the ingredients or adding any decorations and they are great with it…as long as the dish tastes good!
I really appreciate how Super Mario Maker is a good fit for both of my sons. Michael (11) enjoyed playing the levels that other players from around the world had already made and seeing how creative they were. Meanwhile, Sean (8) used his creativity to create his own levels by sketching them out. See for yourself:
