most awesomest minecraft party in the world...no wait universe!!!

well that is according to my son and he is normally right about this kind of stuff being a kid and all

so what made it so freaking awesome?
 ghast pinata made from a box 
and some crepe paper and glue
ghast cupcakes made from white icing, 
red and black licorice 
 green creeper cupcakes made by adding green food colouring to the normal cupcake batter. it meant i didn't have to worry about icing
 party prizes.i found minecraft images online and printed them out and added them to the pens, as bookmarks, for the rings, as bag toppers, for tattoos(go here for stockist), stickers. i also grabbed a couple of bags of letter beads and made minecraft bracelets.
 milk carton party bags with a creeper face and steve on the front.
 pin the tail on the ender dragon. 
totally NOT my idea but from this amazing party 
(which gave me a lot of inspiration for my son's one too :>)
pass the parcel with this cool creeper t-shirt the winning prize. i made this by grabbing an image off the internet and printing it off onto t-shirt iron-on transfer paper 
 birthday boy wore his own one for his birthday
the cake. EASIEST BIRTHDAY CAKE EVER!!! 
 food table and simple banner
food included
wood (square rice crackers)
popcorn (stones)
rope lollies (rope)
red licorice (tnt)
herseys kisses (silver ingots)
crispy sticks (sticks) 
grass(ricies slice with green icing)
dirt (muelsi bars)
sand (cake mix with ricies sprinkled on top)
plus some healthier snacks like carrot sticks, cucumbers, dried fruit and grapes.
plus some gold bars (fish fingrs) and gold blocks (chicken nuggets)
we also had water and creeper juice (green cordial) although one boy did like calling it creeper wees just to gross out the girls lol

 crafting table
the kids had to hunt out some resources in order to get the treasures available. this was awesome. it kept a group of 12 eight year odl girls and boys totally entertained for a good 45 minutes with all the treasure hunting fo resources, swapping, bargaining, bartering etc. it was also lovely to see the generosity of kids just giving their friends what resource they needed for nothing :>
milton the class monkey also came to the party. he really liked the grass to eat.

we also played hide and go creep. the taggers had to run around hissing and when you got tagged you became a creeper too. this was a perfect game to play AFTER the kids had beaten the pinata ghast to death, devoured it's sweet insides and needed to run off a whole lot of sugar!!!

cheers ears

ps now i have made a card and a name plaque...check it out here
