Luke loves Minecraft more than anything, so to celebrate his fifth birthday, we came up with a dinner with a Minecraft theme.
His favorite food is pasta, so I tried to incorporate that into the meal. I got a lot of great ideas from Pinterest.
- Zombie Brains (Rotini Pasta)
- Lava (Spaghetti Sauce)
- Sticks (Breadsticks)
- Carrots (Salad)
- Diamonds and Gold (Hershey’s Kisses and Rolos)
- Sandstone (Rice Krispie Treats)
- Obsidian (Brownies)
- TNT (Twizzlers)
- Creeper Cakes (Cake with green frosting)
For gifts, I used some gem-print wrapping paper I got on clearance after Christmas. Then I put the gifts in a treasure chest that guests had signed at Luke’s first birthday party.
He was thrilled to get a Minecraft LEGO set.
He also got a Kindle Fire from Mimi – more ways to play Minecraft!
It was a fun little way to celebrate our boy’s big birthday.
