Melissa of the
Dandelion Moms blog created these fun Minecraft characters for her daughter’s birthday. Using boxes from grocery stores, colored paper and spray paint, she and her family made a larger than life Steve, pig, spider and cow. Great for both decor and photo ops!

Dandelion Mom Melissa also made this huge creeper backdrop from square paper plates. This only takes three different colors of plates and some tape, but is very impressive! You could use this fun decor as a backdrop to the snack table, a photo background, or even the front door!

The Cupcake Stand blog made these fun TNT licorice bundles for a Minecraft party. Simply gather a bunch of red licorice sticks with a black piece in the middle for a wick, wrap a strip of paper with TNT written on it around them to hold them together. These would be great as a snack or in the goodie bag.

We love this TNT Cake from
The Cupcake Stand blog! The blog’s author covered a square cake in red and black fondant and added black licorice as a fuse. This could be replicated with a box cake mix and pre-made fondant. Add a couple of sparklers and you’ll blow the birthday kid’s mind!

Reclaiming My Inner Pioneer blog shows you how to create this great DIY cake for your Minecraft addict. Alice, the blog’s author, used a box cake mix, rice crispie treats and blue jello to set the scene. She also offers easy, step-by-step instructions.

Jennifer of the
Jenuinemom blog made these stand-out creeper drink cups for her son’s party. The creeper face is made of black electrical tape applied to green dollar store cups, genius! We bet you could also use green paper cups and let the kids draw on their own creeper faces with black sharpie!

You could draw your own pig to pin the tail on, but why do that when you can order this instant, printable download from the Etsy shop
DigiCreationsStudio for just $5? The download includes those cute curly tails that you cut out for the kids to pin on the pig.

Blocks of green floral foam were used by the
Jenuinemom blog’s author to create this creepy creeper. The kids then used suction cup arrows shot with a play bow to knock ‘em down. We bet kids would enjoy conquering the creeper with Nerf guns if you can’t find a bow-and-arrow set.

Jennifer of the
Jenuinemom blog comes through again with another Minecraft activity, exploding TNT! Jennifer put a small bottle in these printable TNT boxes and Mentos candy in a “torch” box. What kid doesn’t love the fun geyser produced by combining Mentos and Diet Coke? The blog post even has free printables of the torch and TNT boxes.
