Both of my kids have been Minecraft nuts since the first one of them got their first “big kid tablet” and could start playing Pocket Edition. After eventually getting the full version of the game for PlayStation, their love for Minecraft went next-level. Between the time they spend in Creative or Survival, playing Story Mode, and watching their favorite YouTubers play (DanTDM, StampyCat, and Pat and Jen have practically become part of the family), this game has become a big part of the kids’ lives. Fortunately, it’s a very creative and kid-friendly game, so we don’t mind. In fact, we love seeing the creative structures the kids construct, and watching them learn teamwork when they play in Survival together. I figured it was just a matter of time before one of them requested a Minecraft party. Though my seven year-old has been playing longer, it was my youngest that requested a Minecraft birthday party first. Here are the details from his Minecraft-themed 5th birthday party from a few weeks ago, including Minecraft party food ideas, Minecraft party decorations (like a cool DIY Minecraft birthday backdrop), Minecraft party favor ideas, and free Minecraft birthday printables.

Minecraft party food ideas
For food and beverages, we tried to stick with food items from the game, or foods that looked like other Minecraft blocks and crafting materials. See a link to the Minecraft birthday printables at the end of this post.
