So my older two boys are a little obsessed with the game Minecraft.
Are you familiar with it? And by familiar with it, I mean you have heard the name, seen some weird blockhead type characters, and are vaguely aware there is building involved.
Other than that, yeah, I have no clue what this little game is all about.
So when Middle asked me to throw a Minecraft party, I was a little worried. I was also more than a little lost and WAY over my head.
So what does one do when they are lost, you hug a tree.
AKA you cling on to what you know for dear life.
What I know?
Minecraft has Creepers.
What are Creepers? Well that I don't know, but what I do know...
There are Creepers.
It became clear that Middle needed to have a Creeper Minecraft party.
There was a whole lot of green and black.
Creepers were everywhere.
These chair covers kind of made my day.
I downloaded a free Minecraft font. Then I used it as a stencil to create this birthday banner from felt and biased tape.
Hands down though, my very favorite part was this giant creeper face.
I used green, gray, and black scrapbook paper. Eight squares by eight squares. For all of you multiplication nuts...or your average fourth grader...that is 64 squares.
I spend a bit of time on that giant wall mural, but the good news is that I didn't really have to plan any games because all they wanted to do was actually play the game.
This banner was so easy and fun to make. Duck tape, paint sample cards, and vinyl.
When they weren't playing, they were eating.
The boys made squares pizzas.
The square pizzas were followed by square Creeper cupcakes.
I continued the green theme with some green ice cream. P.S. I am officially obsessed with these teeny tiny wooden spoons.
Taking a break from the eating and Minecraft playing, we hopped on the Perler bandwagon and we made Creepers.
Ending a party is so sad. We try to make it a little less sad, by sending them home with a little bit of the party.
So even though I have no clue what Minecraft is all about, I think the party turned out pretty good.
After all, Middle had a good time and that was the goal.
