10 Minecraft Facts That Will Impress Your Kids

Ready to learn some fun Minecraft facts that will blow your kids’ mind?  A few years ago, my husband introduced my son to Minecraft. The game quickly spread to being played by my daughter. My husband setup a family friendly server and before I knew it our third child was playing it as well. It’s Minecraft all the time here, well – anytime they have free screen time. If left to their own devices, it would be constant.

I honestly don’t get the game. My husband sat me down in front of it years ago (I admit, I lost a bet.) I didn’t last 10 minutes. It’s pixelated, no high-end graphics and it just wasn’t appealing – but alas, I am a 30-something mom and I don’t think I am their key demographic.

Since I have heard from many of you that your kids too are addicted to this game, I thought I’d learn more to maybe see what the big deal is with the game and how big of a deal it really is.  Good ol’ Google gave me a ton of information on the game plus some really interesting information that I thought you would love to hear about. Check out these fun Minecraft facts!

    Actually, if you pay enough attention, cows impregnated themselves. that’s right. they’re both male and female. they possess horns, making them bulls, and udders, making them cows. I call them culls.
