Last week Marisol and Flynn turned 8. I can hardly believe it.
They wrote rather lengthy lists of what they desperately wanted for their birthday, one thing being a Minecraft birthday party. Unfortunately I failed miserably at throwing that together. These things happen to the best of us.
I did want to put together a few fun Minecraft surprises for them though. One of the things I did was prepare a special Minecraft lunch for them to take to school.
As you can see I made one for a boy and one for a girl, and with the help of a few free printables I found on-line this was actually a very quick and easy lunch to put together.
Juice Box Creeper
Remove the straw from the juice box, wrap a piece of green paper around sealing the back with a little Elmer's school glue. Using a Sharpie, draw on the Creeper face. Don't forget to put the straw into the lunch box.
Tip: If you chilled your juice box overnight, wipe over it with a clean cloth before wrapping the paper around so the moisture doesn't run through the paper.
Small chocolates wrapped in gold paper that I picked up at Party City.
Minecraft Girl/Boy Raisins
I found a fabulous free BE MINEcraft Valentine's Day Sweethearts Printable over at Chica Circle. I downloaded it and then resized it to fit a raisin box. I trimmed off the wrap around sections because I didn't want the Valentine's Day message, and instead glued the main front piece to the packet of raisins.
Carrots and Apples
Catch My Party have a fantastic collection of free Minecraft Party Printables available for download. I simply printed out a sheet with the carrots and apples and folded them over the top of store-bought packets of carrots and apple slices.
You need two cheese sticks and two slices of ham. Cut each in half. Wrap half a slice of ham around half a cheese stick. Put a little cling wrap around the middle and then cover with a free Minecraft Candy Wrapper Printable from Two Magical Moms.
Rice Krispie Treats cut in half. Done!
A super quick and easy Minecraft school lunch that kids will love.
