My kid is obsessed with Minecraft and I kinda like it too, though neither one of us truly understand all of the ends and outs of it. She loves to learn new tips and watches so many Youtube tutorials on how to make herself a better player. (I wish she was that interested in learning how to do her schoolwork.)
She just recently started playing on the PC after months of playing the pocket edition on her tablet and it is a completely different experience. Thankfully, The Minecraft Essentials Handbook that she has had for so long came in very handy. Now, if she can manage to get enough supplies to build a real shelter and gathers enough food, maybe she can make it past a couple of nights without having to respawn. 🙂
Well, tonight after she was done with her homework, we were browsing ideas for classroom Valentines Day cards and I thought it would be really neat if we could some how create a Minecrat character out of candy or juice boxes. I still haven’t figured it out, but one thing we discovered were all of the different avatars, or characters that people have created for themselves. While I am no tech geek or very literate in any of the Adobe products, I do know how to manipulate Microsoft Word. She has been wanting her own character for so long, I thought it would be fun to try to create one just for fun.
It’s pretty rough, but the fact that she said it was beautiful and was absolutely blown away by it makes it so worth it!
Who knows, maybe I’ll take some Illustrator classes and see where they take me, you’re never too old to learn new things!
