We’ve been playing Minecraft for a while now, and every fall we have the same problem. Where are the Minecraft costumes?? I’ll admit, it’s gotten easier to find the parts now that Minecraft is so uber popular, but store bought costumes are never quite at good as homemade. Mitch has been a Creeper, a Enderman […]
All things Minecraft, from video game tips to crafts, toys and costumes. We play a LOT Of Minecraft around here! Check out the Creeper Costume we made when Mitch first caught the bug, the Real Life Grass Block 2.0, or help your kid make a 3D Printable of their avatar!
Do you like to celebrate “Christmas in July?” It kinda makes sense to craft a few ornaments in the summer when the kids are bored…rather than in the winter when you’re frantically rushing from Halloween to Thanksgiving to Christmas! Don’t cha think? Merry Minecraft Ornaments These Minecraft ornaments were a big hit last Christmas–and will still be […]

Last week I showed you Mitch’s Minecraft “diamond” helmet, so here’s the chest plate to go with it! We got it finished just in time to wear to Grant’s Farm Halloween Nights this weekend and it was a great success. Plenty of kids skipped up to Mitch and said they loved his costume! The armor […]
So, you took a leap of faith, and now you’re letting your kid play on a Minecraft server! Good for you–you’re opening up a whole new world of online fun for your little Minecrafter. (Might I suggest a really nice family friendly server?) Wait, what? You didn’t change your kid’s skin before setting his loose […]
I’m pretty easy on the kids when it comes to screen time, but when Mitch starts squishing his food into cubes before he eats it, I know we need a Minecraft detox. Here’s a simple and fun project you can do anytime–but spring is the best! You just need some dirt, a Minecraft action figure […]
Mitch has a huge collection of plush critters, from the first lamb he got as a baby to the Minecraft cow we picked up last week. The kid is 9 and shows no sign of getting bored with stuffed animals! Granted, he doesn’t snuggle up to them like he used to, but he still loves […]
