Our kids ADORE Minecraft. So much that we regularly hold birthday parties in our mobile classroom as well as our facility. (We bring computers, set up a private server… the works!) Trust us, we’ve seen a LOT of Minecraft parties. One thing we love is when parents get creative with their kids’ festivities. And many of them take to — you guessed it — Pinterest, for said ideas. Here are just a few that we’ve found online to get started hosting a Minecraft party — DIY style.

Minecraft Party Games

Keep the kids entertained with a rousing game of “Pin the tail on the pig”, Creeper Toss, Don’t Eat Steve Bingo, or a DIY Piñata!

And don’t forget to send them home with a bag of Minecraft goodies. Print out Steve heads and glue them to folded paper bags, then stuff with knick-knacks found in this blog post. That simple!
