DIY: Minecraft Scavenger Hunt and T-Shirt Printables

As promised, I’m following up my Minecraft Birthday Party post with instructions and printables for our super successful Minecraft Birthday Cake Scavenger Hunt and T-Shirt Party favor.

First up, here is the down low on the Minecraft Scavenger Hunt. I debated for a long time about whether they should find an assortment of random items for their inventory, or do something more specific. I decided to have the kids look for the ingredients to make cake. It was a birthday party after all. I also had them look for ingredients to make candles. In this case I modified the recipe for a torch, making the recipe 2 sticks and 1 coal. Technically it should be 1 stick and 1 coal, but in Minecraft that gives you 4 torches. I needed more candles/torches. So, if your kid is turning 8, you could double the torch recipe, but for odd numbers like 7, 9 or even 10, you have to approximate.

5) Hide the Ingredient Cards around your house or backyard.

6) Instruct the kids on what to look for, emphasizing that it’s a team effort to “make” the birthday cake

Allison - I can’t thank you enough for making your cake recipe and cards available for printing. Seriously, you are helping out this not-so-creative, not-that-much-time-to-sort-this-out mom big time, and I really appreciate it. Also, for the very idea of the scavenger hunt. You’ve alleviated some big worries in planning this party. THANK YOU!

isadorag - The scavenger hunt was super successful, but so was bingo. You should check out my first post about the party where I link to printables by other mamas who spent a ton of time putting together their awesome printables see here:
Have fun.

Lisa - Hi! Love the printables for the scavenger hunt. I would like to make my own as my son is turning 8 and the ingredients will be different. I see you used Minecraft font (how cool), but just wondering how you got the graphic (the 3 buckets of milk, sugar, etc)? Did you take that directly from Minecraft and used image-capture software? Thanks!!

Maral - Hi, I cannot find those green pencil cases anywhere! Would you be able to tell me where you got them from? Thank you! I think your party looks amazing! You did such an awesome job!

isadorag - I found them at a local 99 cent store. Unfortunately, the inventory at those places is hit and miss and varies from shop to shop. Good luck finding something that works for you.

Jennifer Dombeck - These ideas were AMAZING! My son LOVED them, and so did all our guests. Thank you for sharing your creativity!

isadorag - So glad to hear you liked them and that your son had a great birthday. Made me smile. 🙂
