There are a couple movies that my kids want to go see, Monsters University (which was enjoyed by all, especially the lady behind us.) and Despicable Me 2. Hopefully we can catch DM2 this weekend. My kids watch Despicable Me enough times to know and love the minions. You probably see them everywhere... stores, McDonalds, TV and even on those Chiquita banana stickers?!
So of course our next project is to make... a minion!
WHAT YOU NEED
Empty toilet paper roll
Yellow plastic egg
Silver or gray paper
1/8 inch strip of black paper
Yellow pipe cleaner
Markers, crayons or paint
Zots or glue dots
First cut paper roll to be 1 1/2 inches long. Draw overalls and color.
Draw a circle on the silver paper to create the goggle rims. H used a nickel to trace a circle.
Cut out & attach googly eyes.
Apply black strip to complete the goggles.
Cut a small slit on side of roll and push in yellow pipe cleaner as the arms. Wrap black strip around pipe cleaner to create the minion's gloves.
Want to have a Despicable Me Birthday theme, this would make a fun party craft. Need a party favor? Just fill it up with some candy or toy inside!
What summer movies have you seen or want to go see?
