Watch out for the CREEPERS!
|Found this pre-made banner at our local Watkins Printing shop, thank goodness my parents were there to help lace it on the string and hang up!|
As shown in one of the previously listed blogs, wrapped cardboard boxes can be used as blocks for Minecraft structures to be built. I bought 2 stone printed tablecloths to wrap the boxes with, in addition to a roll of gray wrapping paper and roll of brown wrapping paper. This game was used as an ice breaker as we waited for everyone to arrive. The instructions given was to build a structure as a team but they MUST use all the blocks! Once they succeeded, these punching balloons were used to help destroy the structure.
Here's another creeper I easily made out of a white paper plate, black construction paper, and white tissue paper
pinata was a great alternative to the kind you have to hit with a bat.
The mayhem part of the party took place when I placed the TNT image under the cardboard boxes to play a game similar to musical chairs. Well, every time the music stopped and the kids sat down on a box, they instantly collapsed and then were quickly destroyed by the kids! :O I know that's expected from a bunch of young boys, but that whole scene erupted faster than I could blink! I think everyone had a good time and I'm thankful the weather was nice for us to host another fun party in our backyard. Happy 6th b-day Mister G!
