Clash of Clans Birthday Party Barbarian King Favors & Tent Sign

It took me over three months to plan, create, design and put together my sons Clash Clans birthday party. It wasn’t that hard for us because I enjoy playing the game with my son. But being an artist, I revised and tweaked and changed and altered until I felt I got it right for the kids.

And they absolutely 100% loved it!!!!

The labels are approximately 2″x3.5″ and they will fit plastic bags that are 4″x6″ or 3″x5″. You can find the bags at craft stores.

Minecraft Crafting Table Poster

Here’s a suggestion on how to set up your Crafting Table activity at your party:
*Throw some tablecloths down, arrange your napkins, plates, cups and plastic cutlery.
* Place empty bowls on your tables. Then filled the bowls with your party snacks. Place a food tent near its corresponding snack (for example, place the Carrot food tent near the Cheetos Puffs and the Dirt Grass food tent near your rice crispy treats)
* wrap your water bottles or soda bottles with the potion labels and the creeper juice labels. Place your drinks in a separate area.
* On a separate table, place for empty bowls. Place 1 of the following 4 tent signs in front of the bowls: Creeper Marsssshmallows, TNT, Raw Fish, Bookmarks
* fill those four bowls with those 4 party treat favors
* line up your empty goodie bags behind the bowls
*Tape the Crafting Table Poster to the table, hanging off the front so the guests can see it.
*Your party guests will “craft” their own goody bags when they are leaving the party

MINECRAFT PARTY POTION BREWING STATION KIT

Minecraft Party POTION BREWING Station Kit

Minecraft Party POTION BREWING Station Kit

Printable Minecraft Party Potion Brewing Station! WOW your child and his/her party guests.

Doubles as a party activity ūüôā

This is an inexpensive, easy to make (simply print & cut) and perfect touch for your Minecraft themed party.

This is a HUGE party hit!! Read my suggestions below on how to set this up. Your birthday child and party guests will have a blast and make wonderful memories!!

PS – my son has the potion poster in his room ūüôā

***The guests create their potions by adding their potion ingredients to the base liquid at the potion brewing station***

Choose a base. Then add the flavors.

Bases (suggestions):
Water
Sprite
Seltzer
Lemonade

Potion Ingredients (suggestions):
Water beverage mix packets
Kool-Aid packets
Snowcone liquid flavoring
Sugar-free water flavoring packets
Water Flavor Drops (like Dasani or Mio or Koolaid, etc.)

Instructions on how to print, fold, tape included! You can print off as many as you’d like.

If you are willing to “craft” your own Minecraft decorations, then this party kit is perfect for you!

You can set this kit up any way you choose.

I suggest two options for this package of displaying your potion ingredients.

With either option, throw a tablecloth down on your area. Tape your sign to the table or to the wall behind it.

Suggestion One: Put some water bottles with potion labels on one side and some small bowls on the other. Set up the sign tents near the bowls. Fill your bowls with your potion ingredients. Then put the straws with flags in a separate cup (optional). Sprinkle little diamond play gems on the table and ta-da! You have a Minecraft Potion Brewing Station! (You can find little play diamond gems at Michael’s craft store for around three dollars)

Suggestion Two: Pick three or four of the Favor Bag Toppers/Labels, affix them to small plastic bags with a little bit of double-sided tape, fill them with potion ingredients! Put the water bottle labels on your drink bottles for the party: use as party beverages. Place the tent signs around the party near the food. Place a few cups around the party and drop in the straws with flags inside.

Your Party Solved     http://www.yourpartysolved.com

 

My 10 year old LOVES Minecraft and wanted a Minecraft Party. WHAT’S A MOM TO DO? Nothing was available to me in a easy or regular way through stores, etc. ¬†So us parents put our creative hats on and GET BUSY ūüôā

I planned and designed my son’s party for two months. ¬†Taking my sons favorite Minecraft mobs and Minecraft items from the game and pairing them up with party food that would match those items and mobs was exciting and FUN!!!

Budder. It all began with the word Budder. LOL!! (Minecraft slang for gold and everything awesome)

Minecraft Birthday Party Budder snacks treats from Minecraft Party Solved on Etsy

On my other blog post I go into detail regarding my step-by-step process of creating, designing and throwing my sons Minecraft party. ¬†Check it out – for more pictures and Minecraft Party ideas and activities…

Minecraft Goody Bag Crafting Table

Add some “Wow” to your party! Instead of making the goody bags yourself, let the party guests “craft” their own! It DOUBLES as a party activity ūüôā

Probably the best party in a box for Minecraft fans!

Your party guests get to put together their own goody bags by selecting items from the game Minecraft that they love!

Minecraft Creeper Bookmarks

After the party I had so many requests for the decorations and about where I got the ideas from.

Then I realized that I could help so many other parents! I had the ability to assist others in bringing SMILES to the children’s faces just like my son!!

How I did it: One box cake mix,¬†three tubs frosting (two chocolate frosting tubs for black and one vanilla frosting tub split evenly between dark purple and light purple), three icing colors (two black and one purple). ¬†Wilton’s black icing color into the chocolate frosting tub and¬†Wilton’s purple icing color into the vanilla¬†frosting tub. ¬†Take half of the frosting out of the¬†vanilla¬†frosting tub with a spatula and put it into another similar container. ¬†Put a lot of purple icing color into one tub¬†and less into the other tub¬†to achieve the light and dark purple colors. Then mix with one wand carefully over your sink. ¬†Wear gloves at all times. ¬†Why? ¬†The icing colors stain skin and while mixing the frosting, it tends to go everywhere ūüôā

Minecraft Birthday Party Enderman Pinata

The Pinata. ¬†OMG. ¬†Enough said ūüôā I bought a square pinata on clearance when I-Party was turning into Party City (70% off!!). ¬†I wrapped the pinata with black crepe party streamers and glued it, strip by strip. ¬†Yes, strip by strip. ¬†Get ready to rock your body with this painstaking chore ahead of you. ¬†The eyes are Purple and Lavender¬†crepe party streamers glued on. ¬†It was ALL WORTH IT when my son saw his Enderman Pinata completed. ¬†I would do it again in a heartbeat. Maybe with wine next time… LOL

In the picture above, I push pinned two rolls of crepe paper party streamer into each of the four corners of my living room. ¬†Take two rolls of crepe paper party streamer, hold them together evenly, push pin the two strips into one corner of the ceiling then roll them out while turing the two rolls together in a circle to achieve the twirled look. ¬†Roll them all the way to the other corner of the ceiling, rip the two streamers off and push pin that end into the ceiling. ¬†See below – roll A to D and B to C. ¬†It’s a giant “X” on your ceiling.

Minecraft Diamond Ore Block

Minecraft Diamond Ore Block

Diamond Ore is gray, light blue/aqua and white so choose two of those colors for your streamers.  I hung two Minecraft Diamond Ore Blocks from the center.   Here is the pattern for Diamond Ore:  http://pixelpapercraft.com/search?q=diamond+ore

For Minecraft Blaze, use yellow and black and following the instructions above.  Here is the Blaze pattern: http://pixelpapercraft.com/search?q=Blaze

You can make almost all of the blocks and items in Minecraft into paper blocks.  Go to http://pixelpapercraft.com/ Using their search engine, type in what you are looking for.  For example: I typed in Diamond Ore.

Make sure you use Cardstock in lieu of regular printer paper and have glue sticks handy. Cardstock is heavier and a little thicker than regular printer paper.  Have fun!!!  I decorated the party tables with random blocks, mini diamonds and Lapis Lazuli gems for flair.  The boys loved them!

Minecraft Creeper Plates Birthday Party decorations and supplies

Minecraft Creeper Plates Birthday Party decorations and supplies

Minecraft Birthday Party Creeper Plates

You will need square, green party paper plates, a roll of black duct tape, scissors, wax paper (NOT parchment paper) and a Minecraft Creeper face printed off the web to use as your stencil.  There are three parts to the face on the plate; the eyes, the nose connector and the mouth.

Print the¬†Minecraft Creeper face off. ¬†After you cut the duct tape shapes, you will use the creeper face as a guide for each plate so that your Creeper faces don’t turn out creepy and embarassing (too wide eyes, crooked mouth, etc.)

To cut the eye and nose connector duct tape shapes, roll out a strip of black duct tape and adhere it to the wax paper.  Use your cut out Creeper eye stencil to measure width and cut an entire strip for the eyes.  Now use the stencil again and cut each perfect little square. Multi tasking is what Moms do best! The long thin strip that remains will be used to cut the pieces for under the eyes that connects the eyes to the mouth.

To¬†cut the duct tape mouth shapes, again roll out a strip of black duct tape and adhere it to the wax paper. ¬†You will have to do this step a few times depending on the number of plates you are using. ¬†What I did was only make a handful of Creeper plates and place them on top of the plate ppiles for the party. ¬†Making these plates is a time consuming task. ¬†With all of the other party preparations, I was pooped by the time the plate making rolled around…

You are using the wax paper for a number of reasons. ¬†Duct tape is sticky. ¬†Enough said. ¬†And cutting the duct tape while it’s on the wax paper leaves no white tape rips and gives you clean, finished, straight lines. ¬†Perfect little creeper face shapes is the goal.

You can use this picture if you want as your stencil:

Natural Ways to Help with Insomnia

Natural Ways to Help with Insomnia

Essential Oils for Insomnia

Lavender
Valerian
Mandarin
Petitgrain
Vetiver
Orange
Chamomile (Roman)
Sage
Neroli

What are some ways I can help with my Insomnia?

An open bottle of the Essential Oil can be waved under the nostrils, or a few drops are put on a cotton ball, placed near bedding, under a car seat, or under your pillow. The sweet aromas help us to relax during otherwise stressful experiences.

Put a little warm water on top of the ‘hot plate’ and then add a few drops of essential oil to the burners that use a candle or to an electric burner. ¬†Sitting near a burner or vaporizer can be a useful way to benefit from the properties of the oil.

Two to three drops added to a carrier oil and massaged into the temples or neck.

Put very hot water into a bowl and add three to four drops of essential oil.  Then lean over the bowl, place a large towel over your head and bowl to create  a tent to contain the steam, and inhale the vapors.  Steam inhalations can be overpowering, so use with caution.

All natural herbal fragrance mists can be made with 100% pure essential oils and distilled water.  Instructions:
Mix 8 to 10 drops of your favorite Essential Oil or blend
(or try one of our scent ideas) to 1 cup distilled water in a spray bottle
Use ribbon, string, yarn, raffia, or pipe cleaner to tie your tag to the neck of the bottle.
To use, shake well, and mist into the air

Use essential oils in the washer, the dryer or in drawers and closets.  Chamomile or Marjoram essential oils dropped onto a piece of material and popped in with the clothes in the dryer or three to five drops of the essential oils put into the softener compartment of your washer will help aid in sleep while you clean your pjs and/or bed sheets.

Essential oils in the Dryer recipe:
Instead of using toxic and irritating softening sheets in the dryer, toss in a dampened washcloth with 10 drops of lavender, lemon, bergamot, or other oils.

Make a Beddy Bye Sugar Scrub:
2 cups of white granulated sugar
1/3 cup Almond Oil (Coconut Oil will work too)
Lavender, Valerian, Chamomile (Roman) Essential Oils
Jar
Mixing bowl

Add 1/4 cup sugar to bowl
Add 1/3 cup Almond Oil slowly to get a soft consistency that’s not too oily.
Then add a few drops of Lemon Essential Oil!
Scoop the mixture into a pretty jar.  And keep it all to yourself.  Or…share with others!

Candles made with essential oils are not over-powering like chemical fragrance candles.  Dual benefits of scent and healing effects!

Turn your fireplace into an aromatic event! One drop per log.

A few drops of essential oil in a bowl of boiling water (put out of the reach of children) will leave a lingering scent all over any room!

Air and Fabric Fresheners – Essential oils provide a better option all around versus commercial aerosol fresheners. ¬†No more worrying about what those chemicals are doing to your family’s health or the earth’s ozone layer.

It’s been proven that with the effects of aromatherapy, just the way things smell can altar your mood.

Sleepy-Hour Relaxation 
4 drops Lavender Essential Oil
3 drops Chamomile Essential Oil

Add Essential Oils to your bath!  The warmth of the water encourages relaxation and also enables the essential oils to penetrate the skin.  Only the essential oils that are absolutely non-irritant should be added directly to the bath! Pre-dilute with a carrier oil or milk Рfour to six drops essential oils to one cup of milk or two teaspoons of carrier oil.

Essential oils enter the body in several different ways. They can be absorbed through the skin. They can also be inhaled, passing into the blood stream through the lungs or by causing signals to be transmitted through the nervous system directly into the limbic system of the brain. Smelling or diffusing the oils into the air is a basic way to transmit the oils. Massage is also a very popular method of working the oils into the body.

Amber Resin Incense is an emotion balancer and is used in healing and meditation.  Traditionally applied in treatment of amnesia, dreaminess, and insomnia.  Wonderful, aromatic fragrance.

Good Luck & sweet dreams!
