Creating a Minecraft Mod in MCreator (Ages 9-14)

Is you child interested in creating a Minecraft Mod? In my Modding With Minecraft class for ages 9-14, we use a great program called MCreator to learn how to create and code our own Minecraft mods.  Below is an instructional video you can use with your child to help them get started with MCreator and create their own custom Minecraft block.

This is the first lesson I do in class with students.  If your child is interested in creating more advanced mods, click here.
