Quest #19 Jack and the Beanstalk

Jack and the Beanstalk

Jack and the Beanstalk is one of my favourite Fairy Tales because Jack is willing to take risks.
Build a beanstalk from Jacks house to the Giants Castle.

Get some friends together and act out Jack and the Beanstalk in Minecraft.

How high can you go?  Watch a real bean grow in fast time.

You can grow your own beanstalk at home!
