Crafts: Minecraft Characters

Do your children enjoy Minecraft? This popular video game has been a part of our family's lives since our teen first asked if he could purchase it for the Xbox 360 several years ago. With the exception of our 3-year-old daughter, everyone in our family has played the game at some point. It came as no surprise that our youngest son wanted to have a Minecraft-themed birthday party this year.

To help decorate for the party we created some Minecraft characters from construction paper. This fun craft was one that we could all do together.

  • Construction paper 
  • Scissors
  • Paper cutter
  • Glue sticks 


1. Decide which characters from Minecraft you would like to create and gather all the necessary colors.

2. Using the paper cutter, cut the construction paper into one-inch wide strips and then one-inch squares.

3. Lay out the pattern necessary to create your Minecraft character on a full sheet of construction paper.

4. Glue all the squares onto the construction paper. We glued them on row by row to keep it manageable.
