I hope you guys are well.
I have a great craft idea that came from my darling, beautiful and very crafty 6-year-old daughter, Olivia. With a toilet paper roll, construction paper, glue, markers, scissors, and googly eyes Olivia made her very own minions from the movie “Despicable Me.” She came up with this idea on her very own so I’m sharing it with you step by step. Enjoy!
My husband put up a ledge shelf for Olivia’s Arts and Crafts finished projects. Here are her Minions – Ballerina, Mom, Dad, and Baby Minion
I covered the toilet paper roll with yellow construction paper. I added the googly eyes with the glue dots. Then traced around the eyes with the silver marker to make the goggles and used the black sharpie to make the band.
Using the sharpie I drew the smile and hair. With the blue construction paper I made the front of the overalls, adding a pocket and the letter G for Gru.
I glued the construction paper using the Fabri – Tac glue because it works best for me. I used the glue dots for the small strips of construction paper. You can always make the Minion with one eye like the toy figure pictured.
Here’s my finished Minion.
This is a fun craft project for your kids and it’s also a great decorating idea for any Minion party!
Take good care all.
Until next time…
