Minecraft items are popping up all over the place, and I just read about a local Minecraft homeschool group for children. Lego has created Minecraft sets, and I even saw a Minecraft sword at one of the girly stores at the mall yesterday.
The HS co-op recently advertised software to write your own mods, but I think I can use Minecraft Forge and teach the girls Java at the same time. Software programming is fun! :)
Do any of you have Minecraft at home for your children to play? What do you think? Does it build strategy skills?
