Minecraft Valentines

Our sons were complaining how “girlie” Valentine’s Day is so we thought about what our boys love right now and decided on Minecraft Valentines for them to pass out to friends at school.

This also scored us mom points because they love to paint & craft- it’s a good keep-them-busy project for sure! ;) We are a part of the Make It: Fun® team and FloraCraft’s monthly challenge for January was to use cute little project bricks. Since Minecraft is very block-based, bricks were the perfect craft item to pull our theme together!

Besides the Make It: Fun® Project Bricks, you will need a handful of acrylic paint + foam brushes. (Americana brand covers the styrofoam bricks in just one coat and dries within the hour, love that.) To get started, make 3 piles of 10 bricks. Here’s a little peek at the evolution of Steve:

You’ll need 10 bricks per character:

  • (4) Make It: Fun® Project Bricks in a cube (2 stacks x 2) = head
  • (4) Make It: Fun® Project Bricks for the body
  • (2) Make It: Fun® Project Bricks for the arms (Steve, Zombie) or legs (Creeper)

Once they’re painted and dry, secure with Make It: Fun®  StyroGlue, slip into a clear Wilton party bag, print our FREE Minecraft Valentine bag toppers and pass out to friends!

If your kids have huge classes and this is too much work for them to do, you can just toss 10 bricks into a bag and let their classmates DIY on their own!Minecraft Valentines / FREE Printable Bag Toppers #Minecraft

If that’s too much work, just fill with green & brown M&M’s and call it good (;

    Hey gals, just wanted to say thanks so much for this tute! My son is almost 9 & MC obsessed so I’m stoked to be able to do a fun craft that isn’t candy. I’m not a candy miser I just can’t believe ALL. THE. CANDY. they get. It’s out of control. This is way cooler.
