As I mentioned a few months ago, when A said he wanted a Minecraft party I was super grateful that I had just read this Momfessionals blog post. Almost all of my party ideas were from that post, with just a few extra ideas of my own (cardboard torches, cardboard box of TNT, creep around back poster, and scrapbook paper faces). The biggest hits from the party were the bouncy house we borrowed from a good friend and the Steve and Creeper faces (worth every penny!).
I did not have good luck with the Minecraft hangers from Amazon (they had a set featured with ten and I ended up getting only one and had to call Amazon to get a refund), so we went with a little set of Minion crayons (because they were Minecrafty colors), a Minecraft cookie, and blue diamonds (which were a big hit). And of course we had to include our sassy Creeper planter:
All in all the kids had such a great time! I’ve learned that boys move through activities much quicker than you’d ever expect (like five minutes or less per game), and so it was great to have the soccer goal and the bouncy house for just some fun play.
