Great book! My son is a huge fan of Minecraft and while searching on for stuff to buy for Christmas I stumbled upon this book. Being that his birthday is in February and the theme will be Minecraft, I just had to buy it. When I received the book in the mail, I couldn't wait to open it up and check out all the crafts. I'm so glad I found this book.
A must for Minecraft lovers of all ages.I love that this activity book helped to get my kid (8yo) off the computer for a while and doing a real life activity, while still being entertained. If your kid is glued to his electronic device because of this game, this book is a worthy investment. We already had all of the supplies for the projects and my kids continue to make things outlined here several months after the initial purchase. Granted, we are a crafty family so you may have to order some supplies if you are not already well stocked, but they are all inexpensive and readily available.
I was really impressed with the crafts in this book, most could be made by kids pretty easily and would also work very well for activities at a Minecraft birthday party. My kids are big Minecraft fans, so they immediately picked out their favorite ideas and wanted to get to work on them. My daughter decided on the No-Sew Fleece Quilt (she really loved the plush blocks, too) and the project basically consisted of cutting out the felt squares, making them fringed and then tying them together. It took her several hours to complete, but wasn’t difficult at all. I think it would make a perfect backdrop at a party behind the dessert table. After that, she helped her little brother make the foam tool sword, which is made using craft foam and different colors of duct tape. He’s having a lot of fun using his “real” sword from his favorite game. There’s a lot of good info and ideas about the game at the start if you are unfamiliar with it. Very fun book!
This book is so cool. My Minecraft obsessed daughter loves it. Projects are easy enough and we'll photographically documented enough for a kid to make by themselves if you provide the easily acquired materials.
Fun projects with a Minecraft theme. My daughter is crocheting the green thing on the cover for her sons.These projects will get your kid off electronics for a while and maybe parents can do it with them andhave some interaction.
I received this and many other craft books as gifts in the past. I am generally unhappy because projects usually involve a lot of ready made items from the store that you just put together. This uses some store bought supplies at the most basic level, but sometimes calls for items you would otherwise throw away. The finished crafts look really good (except the torches... those don't come out so nice) and although some call for higher levels of skill, the skill level ratings in the book are accurate. My boys and I are hard at work making favors for their birthday parties and Christmas gifts for all their Minecraft playing cousins. I have never been this pleased with a crafting book.I also noticed another review that these same items can be acquired for free online... but I can't imagine where people are just giving away customized Minecraft items. And even if it's true, isn't the point of a craft book making things at home... possibly where children can participate?
My son loves Minecraft. He also loves perler beads. This book couldn't be a better gift for someone with those interests!
My nephew loved this book as a gift and continues to make the projects! Gift success!
