1. Minecraft Cake
Start the party off with a bang by serving a delicious cake designed to look like the Minecraft world. Use green frosting for the grass, brown frosting for the dirt, and blue frosting for the water. Take the Minecraft cake to the next level by adding edible Minecraft figures made out of fondant or gum paste. You can also incorporate different biomes and structures, like trees, mountains, and even the Nether.

Make the Creeper pinata more challenging by using a double layer of cardboard, or add TNT blocks around it to make it more explosive when hit.

3. Minecraft Photo Booth

Create different backgrounds and props for the photo booth to match the different biomes in Minecraft, like a desert, jungle, or snowy tundra. You can also use augmented reality filters or green screen technology to transport the kids directly into the Minecraft world.
4. Minecraft T-Shirts
Provide plain white t-shirts and fabric markers so the kids can make their own Minecraft-inspired designs. Provide stencils or iron-on transfers to help the kids create more intricate designs, or have them make their own Minecraft skin-inspired shirts. You can also have a "best shirt" contest with prizes.
5. Minecraft Party Favor Boxes

Fill boxes with Minecraft-themed goodies like stickers, temporary tattoos, and small Minecraft figurines. Personalize the party favor bags by adding each child's name using Minecraft-inspired fonts or stickers. You can also add some healthy snacks like apples or carrots, decorated to look like Minecraft food items.
6. Minecraft Relay Race
Set up a relay race with Minecraft-themed obstacles like "jumping over lava" (red streamers on the ground), "digging through dirt" (boxes filled with packing peanuts), and "mining for diamonds" (hidden blue gems). Add more obstacles to the relay race, like a "parkour" section with different types of blocks to jump on, or a "bow and arrow" shooting section using Nerf guns. You can also have the kids race against the clock to complete the course.
7. Minecraft Costume Contest
Encourage the kids to dress up in their best Minecraft-inspired costumes and hold a contest with prizes for the most creative outfits. Set up a runway or stage for the kids to showcase their costumes and have a panel of judges choose the winners based on creativity, originality, and craftsmanship. You can also provide different Minecraft-themed accessories like swords, shields, or helmets to complement their costumes.
8. Minecraft Scavenger Hunt
Create a scavenger hunt with clues that lead the kids to hidden Minecraft items like a block of gold, a diamond, or a redstone torch. Use clues that require the kids to solve Minecraft-related puzzles, like decoding written messages using the enchantment table, or deciphering redstone circuits. You can also hide the items in different biomes or structures to make it more challenging.
9. Minecraft Bingo
Print out Minecraft bingo cards and play a game with the kids. Use Minecraft-themed prizes for the winners. Use Minecraft items, mobs, and structures for the bingo squares, like "creeper", "ender dragon", "diamond ore", or "jungle temple". You can also have the kids make their own bingo cards using different Minecraft assets.

You can also have the kids vote for the best designs.
11. Minecraft Crafting Table
Set up a crafting table area with different crafting supplies like colored paper, scissors, glue, and markers. The kids can make their own Minecraft-inspired creations. Provide different templates or blueprints for the kids to follow, like making a creeper head or a Minecraft sword. You can also have them work in teams to build bigger structures, like a castle or a village.
12. Minecraft Pin the Tail on the Pig
Play a Minecraft-themed version of "Pin the Tail on the Donkey" by printing out a picture of a Minecraft pig and having the kids try to pin the tail in the right spot. Create a larger-than-life pig cutout and make the tail detachable, like a velcro or magnetic attachment. You can also make it more challenging by having the kids wear Minecraft-themed blindfolds.
13. Minecraft Hot Potato
Play a game of "hot potato" with a Minecraft plush toy. Use different Minecraft-themed plush toys, like a pig, a creeper, or a chicken, and add different sound effects or music to create a more dynamic game. You can also add different rules, like passing the plush toy using different Minecraft-related actions or poses.
14. Minecraft Movie Night
End the party with a screening of the Minecraft movie or a Minecraft-themed episode of a TV show. Set up a projector or a big screen and create a cozy Minecraft-themed lounge area using pillows, blankets, and bean bags. You can also have the kids make their own popcorn buckets or Minecraft-themed snacks.
15. Minecraft Dance Party
Create a playlist of Minecraft-themed music and have a dance party with the kids. Create different dance routines with Minecraft-themed music and dance moves, like the "Creeper Shuffle" or the "Diamond Pickaxe Swing".
