Hama Beads and Minecraft

Like loads of kids Jack is well into Minecraft, although we only have the Pocked Edition (you can't get in on Wii U!) And one of the best things about the simple graphics is the ability to recreate them in loads of crafts for kids (and me!!)

With the holidays coming up I thought I would make the boys a little treat: I made them a Minecraft inspired Tic-Tac-Toe board with Steves and Creepers! It took the whole school day to do (between school runs, baby feedings, toddler potty training etc) and I have to admit I am really really proud of it!

The kids have really enjoyed it. In fact they were so impressed that they wanted to have a go at making some Minecraft Hama Bead stuff too! So this afternoon while the younger two were taking naps I got the stuff out, found some patterns on Pinterest (I have found loads, check out my Hama Beads board) and gave them the ipad to copy from.

This is what they made:

Awesome combination of screen time, crafting, and family time!



Facebook has changed it’s policy for posts to Facebook pages like mine. They are only showing posts to a few likers unless I pay to boost the views. Since I don't earn money from my blog (or at least not much, not even enough to buy one posh a coffee a week) I wont be doing that. The best way to make sure you will see my blog posts is to subscribe by email up there on the right. I usually only email once a week and include an invitation to my blog hop so you can share your posts too. 

 You can also go to my page, hover over the “liked” button and select get notifications. Then you will see my posts and status updates in your notifications. Mumma Walker on Facebook
