One day Minecrafters will take over the world. What is Minecraft? From what I have been able to learn from my daughter and her friends; it’s a virtual world where children are afforded the opportunity to build their own communities, worlds and lives. They learn skills of negotiation, survival, planning and have an awful lot of fun in the process. Sure there are a few zombies and some talk of death and icky stuff in the survival mode, but in the creative mode the parameter’s of this game are limitless and astounding.
Most recently my daughter and her BFF took the world of Minecraft outside of the computer. They grabbed a box of Rice Krispies and created some pretty awesome “Minecraft Creeper Cookies”. The documented the entire baking process on video, and uploaded it.
I was all kinds of proud.
Want to make two young self proclaimed “geekly chic nerd girls” extremely happy. Give this video a watch, and maybe even subscribe to their channel! Then picture them jumping up and down every single time they get a new click, because they will.
