It’s that time of year again. Big Boy is turning one year older. For this year’s birthday he requested a Minecraft birthday. Let me put that request in context. He requested a Minecraft birthday almost as soon as he finished unwrapping presents from his Lego birthday. I wish he could just enjoy the after glow of his birthday, but he goes straight into planning next year. I guess he’s a planner. I can’t really fault him for that, I am too. So, here’s my Minecraft birthday inspiration board.
Big Boy has been obsessed with Minecraft. As a parent you worry that it’s not healthy. But while I like to limit his time, I find that Minecraft has actually taught him many things, from learning to survive and finding food, to building his dream house, to trading with villagers. Next up for him, learning to use “red bricks” which have the power of electricity, to build more complex creations.
There are plenty of Minecraft birthday party ideas out there. But I found that most of the parties are predominantly based around the green Creeper character. As a party planner, I can see the appeal; simple color scheme, clean graphics. That said I would like to attempt to encompass more of what makes the Minecraft world so fascinating.
