Don’t Eat Steve! Printable Minecraft Party Game

Are your kids as obsessed with Minecraft as mine?  Seriously they love this game!  I do not understand the appeal, but I am not a gamer at all,so I don’t really get most games.  If you haven’t heard about it, chances are there is a child in your life that could give you a run down of the game.  Basically it is a building and survival game where everything is in cubes.  You are the character named Steve and he has to create and survive in his own little world.  There are a couple of options for playing; you can play creative mode (which is where my kids seem to stay for the most part) where it is peaceful and you basically just build.  Or you can go to survival (a little more advanced) where you have to build while avoiding creepers, animals and various “bad guys” while building your world and gathering food, mining, and surviving.

My youngest is turning 6 and wants a Minecraft birthday party.  It isn’t going to be a huge deal, and just a few friends.  I don’t generally go all out for my kids’ parties, but I do like to make them fun and have a couple things centered around their chosen theme.

Have you ever played the game “Don’t eat Pete”?  If not, the object of the game is simple. You put some small candies on each square of a board (similar to tic tac toe) and then have one child turn around.  Have the other children pick a square that will be Pete (or in this case Steve).  When the other child turns back around, he starts to eat the candy off of the squares.  When he gets to the square designated as “Pete”, everyone yells “DON’T EAT PETE!” We played it at his party last year and everyone loved it.  That is all they wanted to do the whole time!  It was so fun!

So this year I created a printable for you to use too!  Click here to download or print a copy of your very own “Don’t eat Steve!”

I love how it turned out!  The pics are great and your kids will be so excited to see some of their favorite Minecraft characters.  Even better, if you get to close to Herobrine or an Enderman you aren’t going to die on this game! ;)

graduation pops It is that time of year again… Graduation time!  Lots of parties and memories to be made!  If you are looking for a festive fun little treat to bring the party, take a peek at these Graduation Hat Pops. They are quick and easy and lets face it CUTE as can be.  Plus you can make them in lots of colors to make them fit your school colors.

graduation pops

To make these you will need:

  • Mini M&Ms
  • Mini Reeses (come in a bag in the candy bar section of the store)
  • Mini Hershey’s plain chocolate bars (came in an 8 pack in the candy section)
  • Air Head Extremes
  • Sucker sticks

Start by  unwrapping you mini chocolate bars and cutting them into 2 squares.  You will have one skinny piece left over save that to melt for putting them together.  You do not need them all so if you need a chocolate fix go ahead and eat one :)

 Take the skinny piece of chocolate left over and melt it so you can use it as “glue” to put your caps together.  I put mine in a glass bowl for 3o seconds, they do not look melted but once you touch it, it is soft and melted.  Gently twist the sticking into the wide end of the reeses mini.  Then dip the skinny end in chocolate and “glue” it to the bottom of the square piece of chocolate.  You will want to make sure you stick it to the side with words, so the smooth side will be the top of your cap.

graduation pops

If you are in a hurry put them in the freezer to harden the chocolate, I just let them set a few hours then came back to finish after the chocolate had set.

Use scissors to cut the air heads into thin sections, attach them with melted chocolate to the top of the cap.  Top it off with a mini M&M.  I made a stand to hold mine out of scrapbook paper and a styrofoam block.

KFC mothers say dinner idea

How many of your husbands are going to be in charge of feeding the family Mothers Day weekend?  Since not all husbands are familiar in the kitchen they might appreciate a few ideas. If they go to KFC they can snag you some tasty chicken as well as a FREE cake.

 Mother’s Day is coming up and KFC wants to help you celebrate! We know that Each May, families gather round to give Mom the day off she deserves. But how many times has a well-intentioned Mother’s Day gesture gone slightly awry? To make sure it doesn’t happen this year, KFC is giving Mom a break from dinner prep and offering customers a free family-sized cake (rich double chocolate chip or sweet lemon flavors) with the purchase of a meal, through May 25.
