A few weeks ago Maxton turned seven and we celebrated with a Minecraft themed party. He loves video games right now and that was his gamer theme of choice. I had a few ideas on what I wanted to do for the party, most of it just came from watching Maxton play the game; and asking him what characters he wanted to see incorporated into the party.
He asked for Herobrine, a Creeper, Pig and TNT. Everything in the world of Minecraft is very geometrical, so I figured it would be fairly easy.
The sign and balloons I purchased from Party City and the “Max” portion of the sign I made myself.
I found some shoe boxes and used construction paper to transform them into TNT, a Creeper and Herobrine.
I asked Maxton if he wanted to do a “Pin the tail on the Pig” and he thought it was a funny idea so I purchased some bristol board and glued a pig made out of pieces of construction paper onto it.
He actually turned out pretty cute and it was so easy to do!
I purchased plain green paper bags for the gift bags, and just cut out black pieces of construction paper to glue on to them to turn them into little creepers.
The cake I had made by a home-based cake decorator and she did a fantastic job! I was so pleased with how it turned out; and it tasted amazing! It was a chocolate cake, at Maxton’s request.
Maxton had such a fun time, and said it was his favourite party yet!
I love planing the kids birthday parties and I am always excited to see what theme they choose each year.
If you are looking to plan a Minecraft party for your kiddo, I hope this offered you some inspiration!
