Minecraft party survival

Top 5 tips for a successful minecraft party 

  1. Keep guest numbers small if it’s in your house (we had six children in total – just the right number)
  2. Send them on a Minecraft scavenger hunt – we used the one on relocatedliving.com and they had great fun.  We also used various other free printables for food and drink labels, party bags etc:  http://printabelle.com/product/free-minecraft-party-printables-extras  and http://peoniesandpoppyseeds.com/2014/03/minecraft-printable-party-pack/.
  3. Make some Hama bead keyrings or badges (pop them in the party bags so they don’t get forgotten).  This kept them entertained for a while.  I order the beads and boards from Crafty Crocodiles (http://www.craftycrocodiles.co.uk/) and found the patterns here: http://www.minieco.co.uk/minecraft-design-sheets-hama-beads-paper-mosaic/.   The weapons were a bit complicated for 6 year olds, the ‘faces’ were easier.   Just don’t jog each others elbows… File 23-04-2015 21 01 50
  4. Try and make one of those lovely ‘Minecraft block’ cakes like the amazing ones your son has seen on Pinterest.  Mine was a bit more humble!   My Mum kindly made a marble cake (using the same recipe she did for all those cakes she made me when I was little!), I then covered it with chocolate buttercream.  Next I rolled the icing out and cut it into squares using a pizza cutter and my quilting ruler (!).  I then spent ages sticking on lots of little squares.  It was by no means perfect but the birthday boy was happy… and he got to keep the Fimo cake toppers I made.

Mummy can I have that one? – as he points to the most complicated three tiered cake…

5.  Don’t play ‘Pass the Parcel’, ever.  I forget this rule every year and there are always tears and tantrums, even with chocolate treats with every layer!
