Make Your Own Minecraft Creeper Pinata

Who else has kids that are totally into Minecraft? A year ago, I had no idea what that even was, but now it seems like a normal part of daily conversation to bring up Creepers or Endermen! Now you can join in the fun and Make Your Own Minecraft Creeper Pinata!

My twins turned 5 last month (insane, right?!) and had a big Minecraft themed birthday party. If you missed the party post, go check it out! We also had this super fun Creeper pinata for one of the activities, and the kids thought it was the coolest thing ever.

Of course, I couldn’t FIND a Creeper pinata, so I decided to make my own. It was really easy, and saved my budget even more! Gotta love a wallet-friendly birthday party!

Supplies

  • Square box (or pinata) – with a small opening to insert candy/etc.
  • Random green tissue paper
  • Tape & scissors
  • Black construction paper
  • Rope or something for hanging

Directions

  1. I got a simple, inexpensive box ‘birthday present’ pinata to start out with. Make Your Own Minecraft Creeper Pinata / by Busy Mom's Helper #minecraft #pinata #party #craft Take your tissue papers and randomly put the colors row after row taped to the box on all four sides. After each row, cut slightly so the paper ‘ruffles’, like a pinata!

  2. Keep on going, keep on going…. Make Your Own Minecraft Creeper Pinata / by Busy Mom's Helper #minecraft #pinata #party #craft Make Your Own Minecraft Creeper Pinata / by Busy Mom's Helper #minecraft #pinata #party #craft
  3. After your box is covered, cut out the face from the black paper and tape that onto one (or all four, like I did) sides. Make Your Own Minecraft Creeper Pinata / by Busy Mom's Helper #minecraft #pinata #party #craft
  4. Fill with your candy/etc., attach the rope (or whatever you’re hanging it with) and you’re ready to go!

Our box lasted a decent amount (the main group was filled with 5-6 year olds, so not exactly hard hitters), but when it WAS finally done it didn’t exactly resemble a Creeper anymore….

This was so much fun, and even easier than the DIY Minecraft Torches I made for the party!
