Minecraft is such an awesome game, but it’s also a blackhole of screen time. To peel my kid’s eyeballs off the computer I like to distract him with fun crafts that incorporate his favorite games!
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!

He STILL wearing his diamond armor from Halloween! So you can guess I was pretty jazzed to hear about the Minecraft Mine chest–a new subscription service from Mojang. Monthly goodies from Minecraft?
