Minecraft Enderman Birthday Party

In this blog I will share what I created, how I created it, write out the party food list for the store, provide recipes and lots of pictures! I will also provide links where you can get the decorations. Not expensive ūüôā Party on a budget!

Minecraft Enderman Cake

Minecraft Enderman Cake

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 Enderman Brownies

Minecraft Enderman Brownies

Add black food coloring to a brownie mix for Enderman, then use purple icing for the eyes!  Make sure the brownies are square (everything in Minecraft is square).

Minecraft Cave Spiders using lollipops and black garbage bags ūüôā

Snip off the top of a black garbage bag squares. Take three pieces of black chenille craft wire and snipped them in half to made 6 perfectly sized legs. Wrap the 3 wires around the stick once to hold the garbage bag on tightly and finally give them knees by putting a kink in each leg at the center.

 

Minecraft 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

Print out toppers and wrappers. Tape toppers to toothpicks and then insert into frosted cupcakes with Dirt Grass Cupcake Wrappers. ¬†It’s easiest to wrap the cupcakes first with the wrappers, then frost, then place the toppers on.

Creeper Cupcakes

Remember, that everything in Minecraft is SQUARE.  No round cupcakes are allowed! LOL!  I had a party guest point that out to me at the first party and my heart sunk.  So I am passing this tidbit on, to save you from that giant mistake!

Minecraft Nether Portal with Streamers

Minecraft Nether Portal with streamers and Enderman party decoration for the wall

 

To hang the streamers I climbed on a chair. I’m not suggesting that, that’s just what I did ūüôā

I worked my way from the outside of the doorway in, starting with a couple rows of black crepe streamers and then moving into the rest of the streamer rows with dark purple streamers.

It is so much easier to precut the streamers before you climb up a ladder or chair, etc. Also wear something that has a pocket for the tape or do what I did and place the tape on the bookcase right next to you ūüôā

I taped each piece of streamer to the molding above the door. After each piece was taped, I then took long pieces of tape to secure it all together.

After the streamers were hung, I used clear pushpins to attach the nether portal sign above the streamers and high enough so that no adult heads would hit the sign.

Unfortunately I didn’t take a picture of the nether portal sign after I hung it, so here’s a picture of what I tried to replicate.

Here’s an idea that we didn’t actually do at the party but I thought it was pretty cool.

Minecraft Bubble Particles OR Minecraft Rain Filled Cauldrons (because Enderman dislike rain) – using little black Bubble Bottles. You could also print out the Enderman eyes or faces and use double sided tape to stick onto the bubbles.

During party set up, the children assisted by hiding the skeleton bones, sprinkling Lapis Lazuli gems and diamond gems on all the tables and surface areas.

Ghastly Guessing Game

Minecraft Ghastly Guessing Game, Minecraft Enderman, Minecraft, Minecraft Party, Minecraft Birthday, Minecraft Enderman Birthday, Minecraft Enderman Party, Minecraft Enderman Decoration, Minecraft Enderman Pinata

Ghastly Guessing Game:

Party guests will take a marker and one post-it note. They will write their name and numerical guess onto one post-it, fold their paper in half and place it in the empty jar.

Party guests try to guess the exact number pieces of candy in a jar. At the end of the party, the Ghastly Guessing Game winner is announced and the candy jars are given to the winner.

Item List:

-White card stock (2 pieces, 8 1/2″ x 11″)

– scissors or paper cutter

– double sided tape (in the stationary/paper section of most stores – right next to the regular tape)

– regular tape

– Post-its

– Pen, pencil or colorful marker to write guesses

– One (1) clear jar, One regular jar or container to hold the paper guesses

– Bag of snack size chocolate bars

– Graham cracker box (1)

 

The party was terrific! The children especially liked the Skeleton Scavenger Hunt, the Ghastly Guessing Game,¬†the Craft Your Own Goody Bags, the Potion Brewing Station and the Enderman everywhere in the party! ūüôā

Potion Brewing Station

Minecraft Potion Brewing Station, Minecraft Enderman, Minecraft, Minecraft Party, Minecraft Birthday, Minecraft Enderman Birthday, Minecraft Enderman Party, Minecraft Enderman Decoration, Minecraft Enderman Pinata

Potion Brewing Station

Throw a tablecloth down on your table. Then place the large white BREWING STATION poster board you created in the back center of the table.

Line the full, potion label wrapped unopened water bottles up on your table in front of the poster board. Tape some of the sign tents up near the station. Sprinkle little diamond or lapis lazuli (dark blue) play gems on the table.

Item List:

– large white or green or black poster board (I got ours at the dollar store)

– water bottles, unopened (remove/cut off the bottle labels that originally came on the bottles from the store)

– glue stick (We used the purple disappearing kind)

– scissors or paper cutter

– double sided tape (in the stationary/paper section of most stores – right next to the regular tape)

– regular tape

– flat surface (to lay the board out to create it)

– little play gems (We got ours at Michael’s crafts or dollar stores for around two – three dollars)

 

Enderman Thank you Labels

Or you can use them like this, too:

Not an expensive party. The time put into thinking up the ideas, printing and cutting out the food signs and decorations, grocery shopping for / making the food and setting up was my investment.

WELL WORTH IT!!

Success! Great memories made! Happy birthday child and guests!

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:

Minecraft Birthday Party Scavenger Hunt

Enlist the help of your birthday child for ideas for the Minecraft Scavenger Hunt.  They know the game best and what their favorite Minecraft items are.  Together you can come up with great ideas and make great memories!

I set an hour time limit for the children. ¬†They used their pockets to collect, but had lime green Creeper collection bags available to use. Whoever had the most items at the end of the time limit was the winner of the giant Diamond. ¬†They paired up, so think ahead on the prize. ¬†I had one prize and two children that won together. ¬†Suprise, Mom! What fun! Another trip to the store after the party for the second giant Diamond…
