This week we have a great example of how Creatubbles can be used to connect kids and teachers everywhere. This week two students that live over 300 miles away from each other, are joining together to create an April Minecraft challenge for other crafters to take part in!

You may remember Owen, the 9-year-old Minecraft enthusiast that invented the Minecraft Challenge. Since January, he has regularly posted Minecraft tasks and invited other players from around the world to join him in uploading the results a Creatubbles gallery.

The gallery has seen submissions from all over the world including the US, UK, Italy, Australia, Turkey, and more! One participant, 12-year-old Wyatt, enjoyed the challenge so much, that his teacher reached out to Creatubbles to see if they could connect with Owen and create challenges too!

So welcome to April’s bumper edition of the Global Minecraft Challenge! Now double the fun!

To take part, all you have to do is complete one or more of the challenges below and submit a screenshot to this Creatubbles gallery!
