Happy 8th birthday, Mason!

MasonMy big boy Mason turns eight years old today! Now that his Minecraft-themed party is over, I can share some pics. For those of you who don’t know, Minecraft is a computer game where you “mine” for 3D textured cubes and build, well, pretty much anything you want. It’s very popular with both kids Mason’s age and adults alike. I’ve learned a lot about Minecraft over the past month!

For the invitation, I got a 3″ brown box from a storage solutions store and printed green pixelated grass for the top and edge to mimic a grass cube.

Invitation

Mason labeled the food – wool (popcorn), sticks (pretzels), TNT (licorice) and monster eggs (jelly beans).

Food

Minecraft cakeI found out there is a cake in Minecraft. Who knew? Naturally, I had to make it and naturally, I had to add to it so it wasn’t so plain. So I made a sugar cookie pickaxe and iced squares onto it.

Then the boys “mined” (scavenger hunt) for crocheted Minecraft blocks – creeper, diamond, grass cube, obsidian, stone, TNT and emerald. I had a ton of fun making them!

A good time was had by all! Now on to Evan’s birthday party ideas…
