When is the right time to put up your Christmas decorations?

How to build a Minecraft head

So does your kid spend too much time on Minecraft? Then why not have some excellent parent child time away from the tablet or Xbox etc and keep them interested by building something they love.

My little fella loves:

1. Minecraft

2. Arts and Crafts

3. Role playing/ Play fighting

So we decided to build some Minecraft heads for Halloween for use in lots of future play rather than just purchase a once off outfit to be thrown in a closet and never used again.

Here is how we did it:
