Here you’ll find links to all of our easy Minecraft builds for kids books and project ideas.
Why Basic Minecraft for kids? My son started playing Minecraft in kindergarten, but all the books and tutorials were aimed at older kids. However, the builds were too complicated or too big. The language was too hard. And some online blogs or videos have some adult language or images on them.
So I decided to create a set of simple, kid-safe guides to building simple stuff. basic Minecraft for Kids. Not too big, not too small, not too hard, not too simple. Just right for younger game players! And, we’re focused on the kinds of things young kids might like: a Minecraft house, a tower, or a small castle. Easy builds get kids playing right away, making up stories, and using their imagination!
So check out our growing list of guides to Minecraft, take our poll to let us know what we should work on next, check out our safety tips, and leave comments to let us know what you’re doing.

BE SAFE ONLINE
Here are some tips to stay safe online, particularly for younger kids.
Is Minecraft safe? It certainly is if you are careful. Though we can’t be held responsible for your activity online or the content of any third-party websites, we’d like to offer some advice for staying safe.
- Be sure your parents or guardians are aware of what you are doing online. If you’re worried about anything, tell your parents or guardians or a trusted adult.
- Remember you can play Minecraft by yourself. Or with only friends you choose and know personally. You don’t have to go on servers with strangers to plays the game.
- Before you join a server or realms, make sure you know who runs it and who is on it. Your parents can find a good safe server for you.
- Let your parents or guardian help you set up accounts. Many programs and services won’t let you make an account unless your parents or guardian agree. And your parents or guardian can limit your account to protect you.
- Let you parents monitor your game play. However, some servers have a “kids-only” rule, which protects you! That doesn’t mean parents can’t watch.
- Tell your parents if you are chatting with people or people are chatting with you. Let them see what is being said in those chats.
- Never use your real name online with strangers and do not use it as your username.
- Never give out any personal information like your address, your school, your family members’ names, or how old you are.
- Don’t share your password with anyone except your parents or guardians.
- Be aware that some programs or apps can cause you to spend money. Check with your parents or guardian before doing so.
