Minecraft is an addictive game and no one knows this better than those parents who kids spend endless hours playing this game, especially for free on sites like Minecraft For Free X. Such parents always wish they could find something interesting beyond Minecraft for their kids so that they start spending time away from screen. Here is a list of Minecraft activities and ideas that will attract your kids and make them spend time away from the screen yet engaging with their favorite game world in the real world.
Players plant seeds in the game and they grow cactus. You can bring this to the real world by letting them start a small veggie garden of their own. You can call the activity ‘sapling’ as it’s known in the game. This will build a connection of this outdoor activity with the game world and your kids will find it attractive.
When your kids play Minecraft, they go fishing a lot. It is one of the major sources of food in the game. If you introduce it to your kids in the real life, chances are that they are going to love it. To make it more like Minecraft, you can do some texture work for carry box and make it look like made of Minecraft cubes.
Make them Dye Something
One of the activities in Minecraft is to make dyes from items such as plants, flowers and ink. This helps players change color of wool and therefore look different. Make them do this in real life. Guide them how to make natural dyes from plants. They are going to love it.
Brewing could be fun. Your kids do it all the time in the game. Make them brew something like soda or root beer in real life. If that’s not an option, make them work on a new kind of a milkshake.
Kids make paper in the game from cane sugar. In real life, it’s a little more than that but your kids are going to love it once you teach them how to do it. You can search the internet for a tutorial on making paper at home and help your kids with it. Make them turn paper into a scrapbook and ask them to draw their favorite characters on it. It will become a life-long memory for them.
In Minecraft, armor plays a major role in helping your kids survive the dangers of the game world. They make helmets and leggings from leather and ores but in real life they can make all that stuff from cardboards. All you need is a good video tutorial to help your kids with real-life Minecraft adventures.
Your little miners have been preparing their own food in Minecraft. You can let them do the same in real world. They will already know from the game how to turn carrots to cookies and roast chicken. Just give them a video recipe and ask them to follow it. They will love the activity and you could have a family meal.
