Are they into Minecraft?
Compile your family’s favorite Minecraft song parodies into a songbook and turn time online into an offline musical adventure.
It’s a great way to encourage your kids to sing more without sitting in front of the computer!
In this article I’ll show you how to find music and lyrics for your favorite YouTube Minecraft songs (or any song parodies) and turn them into a songbook you can take anywhere.
Why Make a Songbook for Minecraft Songs?
Minecraft is one of those fun online games that has spiraled into loads of fun activities in other areas. Do a Minecraft treasure hunt, play Minecraft Monopoly or even throw a Minecraft birthday party.
One Minecraft offshoot that has taken the world by storm is Minecraft song parodies. Remember Weird Al Yankovic and his humorous lyrics “Eat It” to the tune of Michael Jackson’s “Beat It”? That’s a song parody.
Song parodies about Minecraft have become a YouTube phenomenon. Kids love them and may sing Minecraft songs more than they sing the original hits.
Take your kids’ love of Minecraft parodies and make a songbook so your family can sing their favorites anytime, anywhere. Prepping the book involves some computer time, but once you finish it, you’ll be able to unplug and rock out.
