What is a mom to do when her son is into something that is not marketed like most popular themes? This has been the challenge for over a year. My son is into Minecraft. For those who do not know what that is, it’s a video game where you build and destroy in a pix-elated world. Of course there is more to it but you get the jest. Good thing the good Lord blessed me some craftiness. I got through a complete Minecraft birthday last year and I believe I mastered Valentines day.
You are a Blast, Valentine
Candy-filled TNT for his class mates. You couldn’t ask for anything easier to do. I saved toilet paper rolls, filled them with candy, inserted a black pipe cleaner, wrapped with red tissue paper. Once they were assembled, I head on over to the computer and made the graphic, printed the quantity that was needed. I then cut them out and taped them on to each tnt. I cut the class list up for the (To:) labels then added (From:) tags as well. There you have it a Minecraft style Valentine.
What creative items have you had to come up with because of the lack of merchandising?
In His Love, Crisi
