Minecraft Party Favors
This super cute Minecraft party favor idea is from Janine F on Pininterest. She made these Twizzler take
home treats that look like boxes of TNT.
All you need for this DIY Minecraft party idea is enough red Twizzlers for all your guests and clear plastic boxes. Print out labels that read TNT (dont forget to make them look pixelated with a font.) Glue the label/wrappers around the clear boxes. Fill each box with red Twizzlers. If the boxes you buy are smaller than the long licorice candies, cut them in half.
Once you have Minecraft characters attending your party, either as costumes or play items, it’s time to include them in some fun games to keep the guests excited.
One idea is to set up a bunch of helium filled balloons and ancor them to the ground with a small weight that is also a little gift/novelty toy. Give each kid a nerf gun and whichever balloons they take out, they get to keep the toy attached to the balloon.
Just about any party game can be tailored to a Minecraft party theme. Let your imagination loose or search the Internet for Minecraft party ideas that have already been tested by others.
