Sean's Minecraft 10th Birthday

If you're around kids, you might have heard of Minecraft...along with almost 9,000,000 Facebook fans!  I don't know what the appeal is as it hurts my eyes just looking at its pixelated images.  Anywho, I helped my cousin put together her son's party in less than 5 days.  Yes, it took many, many, many trips to Michaels, Party City and Dollar Tree.  And thank you Catch My Party, Etsy, Pinterest, Google and crafty mommas of the internet to make it all possible.
it's all about Minecraft!

I bought 16 green shirts for $2 for 5 and blank iron-on sheets at Michaels.   I got the Creeper Face template here and the green block face from here.  It's my first time to do these and they turned out pretty neat.  The creeper onesie is way too cute!  Just follow the instruction on how to print the sheets on your inkjet printer.  I made myself one but my shirt was black and I forgot the iron-on sheets specify if it's for light or dark colored shirts.  These were for light colored shirts.




Here are more party deets:

Natasha, I edited my post and added a picture of the recipe we used for the Scavenger Hunt. The kids had to collect the "ingredients" to craft a cake.
