Minecraft Pinewood Derby Car

When we opened the box the first thing he said is “It looks like a minecraft block” – so he said that’s it, that’s what he wants to do. Keep it rectangle and paint it to look like the minecraft logo.
Obviously I’ll go along with whatever he wants since it’s his project. My first thought was to have him paint 3/4 of the bottom brown and then the top green. That works sure, but I am trying to wrap my brain around making it look more “pixilated” like the logo itself. Different color browns, different color greens etc.
Anyone have any experience painting that can give me advice?
I will of course post photos once it’s all done.

He's 8 and I want him to do 99% of it himself so I think the template may be too hard for him. We'll give it shot and use the craft store as a back up.
It certainly isnt going to be a "perfect" representation of the logo but that's just fine.
