How to Put a Chest on a Donkey in Minecraft


In Minecraft, players often come across situations where they need to transport large amounts of items over long distances. Fortunately, the game offers various solutions for efficient item transportation. One of the key options is to put a chest on a donkey, allowing you to carry vast inventories wherever you go. This life hack will show you how to do just that.


Before you can start putting a chest on a donkey, ensure you have the following:

  • A donkey
  • A saddle
  • A chest

Step-by-Step Guide

Step 1: Tame and Saddle the Donkey

The first step is to find a donkey in the game. Once you locate one, approach it and right-click to mount it. The donkey will then try to throw you off. Repeat this step until you see hearts appear above the donkey's head, indicating that it is tamed. Once tamed, right-click again with the saddle in hand to equip it onto the donkey.

Step 2: Obtain a Chest

To obtain a chest, you can either craft one or find it in various chests scattered throughout the game. To craft a chest, place eight wooden planks in a square formation in the crafting table. Once you have a chest in your inventory, move on to the next step.

Step 3: Equipping the Chest

Approach the donkey and right-click to open its inventory. Place the chest into the slot on the screen that looks like a donkey with a saddle. You will see the chest icon appear beside the donkey, indicating that it now carries the chest. Close the inventory and mount the donkey to continue your adventures with an extra storage option!


Adding a chest to your donkey in Minecraft is a fantastic way to enhance your item transportation capabilities. With a large inventory readily accessible, you can explore, mine, or gather resources without having to make frequent trips back to your base. Enjoy the convenience and efficiency offered by this life hack in Minecraft!
