Minecraft Crafts

I had so much fun planning my son’s Minecraft party! All the pixel crafts were perfect for my Minecraft fan.

The timing couldn’t have been better, we recently moved and I had plenty of cardboard boxes to use for these projects. If you are in need of boxes you can always look on Facebook Marketplace (moving boxes).

I hope at least one of these Minecraft projects spark some inspiration!

These craft ideas are can be made by parents or by older kids, with adult supervision.
