    Minecraft birthday sleepover

    So...I promise I'm not *that* parent. But. Sharkbait is having a Minecraft party for his sleepover.

    Since its a sleepover, the way we have traditionally done things (for his sister) is have a theme with some projects that will keep them busy--especially important since most of their toys are packed now. And then food and movies, hopefully followed by sleep.

    Hubby and I were thinking cardboard armor, and letting them decorate their own Minecraft outfit (we'd do the cutting out basics ahead of time) and sword (also cardboard or foamboard) something like this (but not so fancy): http://www.instructables.com/id/Cardboard-Armor/ (and then throwing them outside to play with some boxes decorated to look like piggy and creepers, etc)

    (random, but PVC bow and arrow=cool: http://www.skiptomylou.org/diy-pvc-bow-and-arrow/ ....I saw an idea for a creeper face bean bag toss target...that would be cool with this)


    So far I have:
    *decorate the door to the apartment like a Nether portal
    *TNT pinata
    *square chocolate cake to look like ground block
    *some version of this (I've seen a smaller one with glow sticks): http://beafunmum.com/2013/10/minecra...aft-printable/ (usually I get the kids glow sticks for the night time)
    *making keychains of the carachters (its easy because they are all pixelated already) or mining blocks from perler beads (or melting pony beads)

    Any ideas for food, decorations, games, or for party favor bags? The kits to buy stuff are rediculous because of licensing.

    The only thing off the top of my head for food is rice crispy minecraft blocks? I know I've seen a ton of mine craft party stuff lately, I'll try to find it when I get home.

    Re: Minecraft birthday sleepover

    That sounds awesome!
    I looked on pinterest, there's lots of stuff!
    A few things that seemed cool and bot overly expensive or crazily ambitious:
    Square pizza with square toppings
    Green balloons with creeper faces pained on.
    Lego I saw someone had made small gift bags with like sand/brown/green lego.

    ideas in my head (I'm not sure what age we're talking?)
    Get a load of boxes and challenge them to build something from them - it was something I loved doing when I was a kid. If you have milk or juice cartons they make quite good building blocks. If you have time you can paint them brown and green.

    any square candy you might even make them eat fruit and vegetables if you cut it into small cubes.

    Just a few ideas I might think of something more later
    You remind me of the babe
    What babe?
    The babe with the power
    What power?
    The Power of voodoo
    Who do?
    You do!
    Do what?
    Remind me of the babe!

    So I guess the question is, if you were a 7 year old boy and his friends, which of these would you actually care about:

    And just as an FYI, this is what I consider *way too much work* as a parent: http://www.minecraftxl.com/minecraft-party-ideas/
