I’d be willing to bet a reasonable amount of money that I’m not the only person living with Minecraft fans. I’m also guessing (hoping?) that most parents know as little as I do about the game. I’m not even down with the lingo, though I WOULD recognize Creeper if he, y’know, crept up on me (or whatever it is Creepers do). I honestly can’t even look at the funny pixilated screen when my kids want to show me something they’ve made – it makes me cross-eyed and confused. I can’t really understand what I’m looking at. I must be old. Really old.
As much as I like to try and embrace my children’s interests, I REALLY like finding ways to do so, offscreen. So last night I had them pick out some colored card stock and they made their own little paper Minecraft models. They are perfect characters to replicate because they are just so…block-y.
We woke up this morning to an entire fleet of Minecraft models. Apparently we have : Squid (blue), Creeper (green), Enderman (black), Snow Golem (white/orange) and Blaze (yellow/red).
