Learn to code with Minecraft

Do you have kids that love Minecraft?  I know I do.  I am always amazed to here about their cities and their vast imaginations with what they have created.  As much as I do love to hear about what new things they have created, I do limited the amount of time I allow my children screen time.  I hate to see them waste their time away on gaming.  

I have a child that loves to code so I think learning to Mod Minecraft will be a good fit for him and while he is doing it, I will feel a little bit better about the time he is spending on screen time.  What you love/hate about Minecraft? Leave a comment below.
