I left it a bit late to organize, so some things didn't happen. Like baking the Birthday cake, it was bought instead, and the Pinata never got made. Thank goodness imagine how many lollies there would be....too many!
|The only thing is with a Minecraft party you are|
using a lot of lollies so it is certainly a
'high sugar party'.
For a theme party Minecraft is a pretty easy one, (well if you like making props). Google is your friend here, because there are so many resources out there. Some are free and there certainly is plenty of information and ideas when it comes to Minecraft Parties on the Internet. Just check out the many boards on Pinterest. A good site for resources is here also.

I used familyshoppingbag.com. for a lot of the decorations like the banner, food labels, drink labels.
|Enderman Bags were made buy gluing Enderman eyes|
(found on Google) onto paper black bags from
Party World. Then making labels using
a Minecraft Font.
|I downloaded the bunting from here. Then printed out.|
|The Balloons I bought off Trade me. There was some|
good Minecraft Resources so I bought a few,
like badges, stickers etc.
|I laminated the print outs and used fizzy lollies|
as counters for the Minecraft Bingo Game.
|Some of the Minecraft food labels I stuck to small|
skewers to place in the food.
|Just water, but the bottles were very popular. I made some|
other potions too.
|This was fun!|
The Chocolate Game consisted of using a Steve Mask, already made from the last dress up day at school. A block of Chocolate wrapped in a Minecraft themed paper (easy to make). A big dice covered in a Minecraft picture on each side. For example, Steve, the Pig, and Enderman instead of numbers. Steve was our six on the dice. For those familiar with this game you will know you have to throw a six in the game to be able to eat the chocolate.
When a child threw 'Steve' with the dice they got to put the Steve Mask on, take the knife and fork, and cut up the Chocolate block, and then EAT the squares of chocolate they cut. But they can only continue eating the chocolate until the next 'Steve' is thrown....Then the child who has thrown 'Steve' has a turn cutting the chocolate up to eat (he has to put the mask on also).
To avoid disappointment, always have a spare block of chocolate handy to give to those who missed out in the game.
You might also want to change the dice value for winning after a while. For example, throwing a 'Steve' no longer lets you eat the chocolate. Now you now have to throw a Pig to eat the chocolate this round.
This changes the dynamics a bit...So the child who didn't throw a 'Steve' at the party they now have another chance. at maybe getting a Pig (you're sort of helping them along).
I can tell you when you sometimes change the value of the dice 'Murphy's Law' kicks in and no winning Pig turns up. You still have one child who doesn't get a piece of chocolate in the game...
But don't worry you can sort it because you have that spare block of chocolate...
|This is a popular game children for a group of children.|
The Chocolate block is kept in the fridge. This makes
it harder to cut...
|Actually nobody missed the green icing of last years cake.|
