Minecraft Party Ideas

Minecraft parties are becoming more and more popular, and it’s not hard to see why. These imaginative celebrations are perfect for kids who love to build, explore, and create. And with a little planning, they can be relatively easy and affordable to put together.

Although throwing a themed birthday party is fun (not only for your kid, but their friends, too!); time is of the essence. With these Minecraft Party Ideas, you’ll be able to whip this theme up in no time at all.

7 Minecraft Party Ideas

Whether you’re hosting a birthday party, play date, or just a get-together, these Minecraft party ideas will be a hit with your little Minecrafters!

#1: Minecraft Centerpiece

If you’ve got them on hand, use Duplo LEGOS to create a “Minecraft World” centerpiece. Recruit your kids to help stack these large LEGOS into mountain and hill configurations, much like the terrains found in Minecraft.

We also own the Minecraft Board Game and used the wood blocks, set on a cake stand, as part of the centerpiece, too. Then, we placed the game’s pawns around this mini-Minecraft world, climbing up the Duplo hills.

#2: Minecraft Party Decorations

Grab a pixelated birthday banner and a set of mining themed balloons to use around the dining room. Banners, garlands, and balloons make a great Minecraft backdrop for pictures of the birthday kid!

#3: Minecraft Birthday Sign

As a focal point, we always decorate a chalkboard or a welcome sign (easel) with the birthday kid’s big number.

For a Minecraft themed sign, draw block-style numbers on a chalkboard or easel. Then, hang a simple color-coordinated pom-pom garland (yes, I’ve been using the same garland for 9 years) or add balloons.

#4: Minecraft Invitations

For the invitations, create DIY invitations that look like pixel blocks. Hand-draw the blocks or use a Minecraft printable invitation template

#5: Minecraft Party Games

Games are an essential part of any party. You have to keep those kiddos busy! Here are a few fun games to play:

  • Minecraft Board Game – We love this great strategy game. Even if you don’t play at the party, consider buying this board game as a gift for the birthday kid!
  • Minecraft Bingo – Prepare bowls of single color legos (in Minecraft colors) for kids to use as Bingo pieces. We used bowls of LEGOS as decor on the party table, too – ready for Bingo when kids arrive!

#6: Lego Station for Minecraft Builds

Set up a Lego Station where kids can construct their own Minecraft-inspired creations. Make sure to sort the LEGOS out into Minecraft colors (Green, Blue, Brown, Gray, Tan, Black).

#7: Minecraft Party Cupcakes

Since Minecraft is all about using different pieces to create, don’t worry about making a cake. Instead, grab some cupcakes and place them on this pixel cupcake stand. Decorate the cupcakes with easy grass frosting and Minecraft cupcake toppers.

Themed birthday parties don’t have to be time consuming. A few decorations, a game, a craft, and some cupcakes is all it takes to make a Minecraft Party come to life.
