My boys are huge Minecraft fans, they can watch StampyLongNose videos all day if I let them. This year we decided to make Minecraft valentines, specifically Minecraft Creeper Pencil Topper Valentines. This craft is so easy and Zane loved making them with me as you can see in our crafting video.
I originally planned on having just the creeper on the valentine, but Zane came up with the great idea of having a heart arrow coming from the creeper head.
- Green Chenille Stems (cut in half)
