This week’s #MinecraftMonday is going to be switched up a bit. I know we have tons of lessons which are a big range but today we are going to be a bit more relaxed. These will be useful for later challenges or just when you and your child are playing for fun. With the Holidays upon us and a long winter ahead, it is okay to take some breaks right? I mean you can still learn and work on cost of building, or measuring. Anyway we are fully caught up on all lessons for the year so far. I am going to being posting weekly challenges for the kiddos on our Facebook group and see what the kiddos can come up with.
Anyway, today we are looking at furniture hacks. Here are great videos to learn from that Matthew and I both use to learn some new things.
There are hundreds of videos so you can have fun watching and searching. The three above are the ones we utilize the most. Moving on, there are also add ons you can download to your game.
And there are books to help too. I have a huge list in the Minecraft curriculum but to repeat the ones that are specific to furniture hacks and building, we enjoy:
