How To Be A Super Minecraft Mom

Super Minecraft Mom

Welcome to How To Be A Super____Mom! From crafts and recipes to fun toys and adventures, here are ways to take your child’s fandom and make it even more fun!

This has been the summer of Minecraft. It started with the other nine year old boys at school; I overheard whispers of pickaxes, Steves and creepers and suddenly before I knew it, every child I knew was obsessed with the game, my kids included. I’m pretty sure they’ll now see the entire world in pixels.

The creativity, building, and engineering of the game makes it a lot of fun and a great way to stretch creative muscles.

Here are a few ways to encourage your child’s Minecraft fandom!

Just a few simple strips of black tape or construction paper on a green sack and you have your very own custom Creeper bag. Easy to make for party favor bags or even sack lunches for school.

4. Minecraft inspired tee

Who doesn’t love Minecraft and comics? This pixelated Avengers tee is reminiscent of Minecraft and no doubt it will be inspiration to create your own Avengers skins. Can’t you just see a Minecraft Hulk running around smashing everything in sight?!

5. Minecraft Lego

Yep, your mind is blown. Two great things that go great together. When I was at Comic Con in July I got to preview these amazing new toys and you can bet every kid and their parent went wild for them. The perfect gift for your little Minecraft and Lego fan!
