Papercraft of sorts for parents, guardians or grownups otherwise responsible for kids who can't seem to drag themselves away from Minecraft sans 'episodes' [1], especially when they should be doing something else (homework, chores, eating, sleeping etc.), the below 'Minecraft themed dominoes' game worksheet* is provided for convenience in helping redirect and engaging their minds with a simple game that encourages real world participation through artwork they're familiar with. It's 'Minecraft' RL Dominoes!.

Instructions for use: download the Minecraft themed dominoes PDF (c. 4MB), print the sheets (A4, Letter or larger 'A' formatted page) and cut out along the outside of the black borders to create a standard set of 28 'Minecraft' themed tiles they can play InRL. For added durability, after printing stick the sheets to cardboard then cut out the tiles. Alternatively cover front and back with clear wrapping tape.

*the themed dominoes printout is based on material copyright Mojang and Microsoft and provided for personal use only. It is not endorsed by, or otherwise associated with, either entity. In-game assets have been recreated thematically to resemble artwork and to facilitate printing (personal printer, facsimile, photo-copying etc.).

[1] assuming children don't have general behavioural issues, being intently focused on games like Minecraft shouldn't cause problems in the long term. The goal of 'Themed Dominoes' is to encourage their participation in the 'real world', away from computers and other electronic devices, using artistic themes they are already familiar with. This is especially so for younger children who need broader engagement to foster physical (limit how much time they spend hunched over something) and mental (limit how much time is spent in a sensory/experiential overstimulation feedback loop) development of a well adjusted sense of themselves and how they fit into the world around them.
