We have some exciting changes, as well as new build challenges planned.
For our newer server members, here is an introduction to Mini Builders:
We started off with a little section of the server where the kids were given their very first kids-only build challenge: building houses. We provided them with basic supplies and they crafted & built something *amazing!*
Mini Builders has grown so much from that first challenge. We now have a hotel, a Christmas build, farms, mines, a market, and a pier with boats. All of these were challenges presented to our server kids. They met & exceeded expectations with their ingenuity & creativity.
One thing we have found with a lot of our server kids is that they don’t always know how to craft things. With that in mind we built a Schoolhouse to show them how. Hogwarts & its crafting recipe classrooms have now replaced that original Schoolhouse. We have every crafting recipe hanging on the walls of those rooms, so the kids can learn how to craft anything, without having to open an internet browser.
The admin team & helpers have most recently added a couple fun builds for the kids:
“Funland”- an indoor “recreation” area,
and the “Mini-Games Globe” for hide & seek or role-playing.
(you may have heard an admin or 2 join in the hide & seek fun)
Exciting new changes!
Here’s where the evolution of Mini Builders takes another step.
In the past one of the biggest rules at Mini Builders was to only use the supplies gathered at Mini Builders for the challenges and builds there. We are now lifting this restriction and allowing the kids to bring supplies from home.
With the previous rule we were providing the kids with some hard to obtain supplies in their shared vault. Now that they can gather supplies from anywhere, we will no longer be providing those supplies for them.
With the ever-increasing amounts of prizes & goodies the kids receive for participating in & winning challenges, we have built an individual vault system inside our brand new Money Bin! The kids can store their prizes & supplies in their own special vault.

Have you ever wondered what Mini Builders really looks like? Now you can come for a visit! Come check out what the kids have built in competition as well as the farms and community they worked on together.
During all build competitions access will again be restricted to just the kids, the admins, & judges. We will open it back up after judging is completed for each competition.
We are excited to share this fun kids area with all for viewing and even shopping in the Mini Market. We have some exciting new build competitions lined up for the kids to occupy some of their summer hours in the near future.
