Are you struggling for ideas for what to do in Minecraft? Good news! You need look no further. Here are 30 fun things to do in Minecraft.
This list started life as my Minecraft bucket list, a bunch of things I have always wanted to do in Minecraft but have never quite gotten around too. I’m planning to make a YouTube series of myself attempting to complete this list, if anyone wants to give it a go themselves please feel free too and if you link back to this page I’ll put a link to your videos attempting them.
And of course if you have any ideas for things you think should be on this list but aren’t leave them in the comments below for all to see and try.
1. Over achiever
Complete all in-game achievements.
Where better to start than with the achievement tasks the game offers as default.
2. Crop fields
Have a farm with every type of seed.
You could just have one block for each seed type or whole strips of blocks. Your choice but you need to be able to farm each crop.
3. Old MAcDonald
Have a farm with every type of farm animal.
You could have one large pen with each animal type in or smaller pens dedicated to each animal type.
4. Pet kitty
Tame an Ocelot.
Find an Ocelot and feed it fish until it decides to be your companion. Bonus points for a cute/fun name.
5. Wolf pack
Tame a pack of wolves.
Find some wolves and make them your friends and pack. Must be at least three wolves.
6. Location, location, location
Build a base in every biome.
Build a base, house, outpost etc., in each of the different biomes in the game. Size and materials is your choice.
7. Stuck in a tree
Build a treehouse
You can either build a small house up an existing tree or build a special tree for it. It must have a bed and chest in it to count.
8. YOU’RE not my friend
Build a mob spawner
There are loads of different ways this can be done (I’ll make a couple of YouTube video’s showing off my favourites in case you need help) so pick one and build it.
9. diamonds are my best friend
Have full diamond gear
Collect enough diamonds so that you can make a full suit of armour, a sword, and tools out of them.
10. Gold finger
Have 500 gold ingots
Just keep mining until you collect enough gold to smelt 500 ingots.

This one ties in with challenge number 6 location, location, location. Link up all the bases and outposts you have with an underground rail system.
15. Home sweet home
Build a brick house
Collect clay, smelt bricks, make brick blocks and build yourself a house. Points for style and size.
16. Shhh this is a library

Kill a hostile mob using nothing but snow balls.
Collect up lots of snowballs and go mob hunting. Yeah this one could be annoying.
23. Fort Knox

27. Gladiators, are you ready!?

Think of the Colosseum and build yourself an arena to fight mobs in. Traps and obstacles are allowed.
28. Three little pigs
Build a Straw house (Sugar cane walls), a wood house and a brick house, spawn pigs inside them and pretend to be the big bad wolf
The houses don’t need to be very big or very glamorous, just nice enough and big enough for a pig. As for how the big bad wolf would take them down? I’m thinking TNT.

A minimum of 9×9 for the floor plan and 30 blocks high. Doors, lights, fittings etc, are all up to you.
Using only dirt, wheat seeds and a hoe, make some crop circles
Time to call the mothership back to Earth with some crop circles. As ever points for design and complexity.
