    This Minecraft gift bag is great even if your kids don't love Minecraft. Why? Because it proves that even if the objects in your gift bag are pretty average, you can alter their appearance and packaging to fit a new theme. For instance, in this case, juice boxes were dressed up as Endermans; Twizzlers turned into sticks of TNT. Talk about creative!
