    I was curious where you got the templates for your potion pictures and the font you used for your poster. I love your brewing station and would love to do a similar idea for my sons upcoming 8th birthday party in Aug. I am not sure where everyone is getting all of these great pics of the minecraft things? Anyhelp would be wonderful!!

    Hi Mitzi, Thanks so much! I ran into the same issue wit lack of online templates, so I ended up googleing all the images and using powerpoint & photoshop to change it to fit my use.

    I looked up "minecraft Font" and was able to download that font for free, which we then printed on cardstock and cut out.

    What type of paint is used on the t-shirts and were they dry in time?

  • Sugar Bites D

    Sugar Bites D wrote:

    Hi Rema, we used regular black fabric paint for the shirts and brushed them onto the shirts over a stencil. We left them outside to dry while we did cake and presents , so about an hour, and they were dry enough for the kids to take home, though they really are supposed to dry longer. It was such a thin application of paint though, it dried rather quickly

    Hi Torie, thanks! It's actually just a roll of bulletin board paper from Michaels, I've used them for several backdrops before, they are a perfect size for it and come in a bunch of prints and colors:)

    Hi all, I am including here the email I sent out to all of you inquiring about the brewing station, some of the emails didn't go through, and I want to make sure everyone gets a chance to make this fun brewing station for their kiddos! :) So just to give you a few ideas for the brewing station, it was actually fairly easy, and I can give you some links to where I purchased my stuff. For the backdrop, I used a brown craft paper, we actually had a roll of it already, it's what you would pick up at a home supply store for painting or contract work, but really any roll sized paper in any color will do. Michaels also carries it where the bulletin board paper is. For the templates, I basically just used Wikepedia for Minecraft potions :(http://minecraft.gamepedia.com/Potions)...It gives a picture of the potion along with it's power, so I blew up the potion image, printed it and backed it with cardstock, and then printed the description next to it for the kids to read and decide what they wanted to try. ( you can also google "minecraft font" ( try http://www.dafont.com/minecrafter.font) and can get a free download of that blocky font to print out your text.) Make sure to use capital letters so the "A" has the iconic creeper pic in it. So for the actual potions, we wanted to use flavored syrups, but they ended up being pretty pricey. So I ended up using snow cone syrups, which are pretty concentrated and much cheaper. The link for some of those are here: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B002VRM274/ref=oh_details_o00_s00_i00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B004NNUIES/ref=oh_details_o00_s00_i01?ie=UTF8&psc=1 I went with these flavors because the colors matched most closely to the potions. I just left them in the squeeze bottles and printed off labels for them on sticker sheets, peeled them off and stuck them on the bottles, super easy:) For the "base" I went with seltzer water and lemonade, so the kids got a choice. Most picked the water because after adding a vial of the mix in it got pretty sweet. Typically One glass of seltzer needed about 1.5 vials of flavor to make it sweet...you may want to have an adult to help with the mixing, it can get messy but they had a blast! I used Starbuck frappuccino bottles for the jars for their potions, and the test tubes I ordered from Amazon here: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B004EW22QU/ref=wms_ohs_product?ie=UTF8&psc=1 To avoid spills I used the packaging they came in and just covered up the label, it was easier than standing them up and having them tip over. I think that's everything, good luck and have fun!

    Hi Amanda, thanks for your question, in the comments above I gave a brief tutorial on some of the ingredients I used to make the brewing station. Specifically for the potions, I don't have printables as there was nothing available I could find at the time, but I used minecraft.gamepedia.com/brewing to find pics of the potions along with their properties/recipes, and used those images for the station. Hope that helps:)
