As I mentioned last week in our Minecraft: Steve post, my almost eight-year-old daughter is obsessed with any and everything Minecraft. I made a bunch of pixelated templates with the different characters and animals for her to paint. The creeper was the second one she chose to make.
For the creeper, I quickly mixed together 4 different shades of green (with green paint and white/black paint to make it lighter or darker). She went to town randomly painting the squares. The color guide on this one is only there to show you where to paint the black eyes and mouth. She really enjoys these and has been asking for more, so expect to see more in the future!
