Happy Valentine’s Week! I thought it would be fun to start out this week with something fun for the kids. This isn’t a new idea, and I got this from off Pinterest. There are many sites that will help you, and I have them listed below. I liked the look of a handmade minion, so I didn’t use the printable one.
Here are the supplies needed:
Blue paper or felt
Grey paper or aluminum foil
black permanent marker
Cut black paper into thin strips for the goggle strap. Cut grey paper/aluminum foil into circles slightly larger than the plastic eyes. Cut blue paper for overalls.
#1 Put on blue paper and mark for overalls (if desired). Cut and put on with tape. I added a pocket and G for Gru.
#2 Put on thin strip of black paper and glue on aluminum foil goggles.
#3 Add googly eyes and face!
#4 Finalize with cute saying! “You’re one in a MINION Valentine!” (Download available here: Minions doc)
This can be done so many ways! See these sites for more ideas and a printable download if you like!
thebensonstreet.com: This one doesn’t have overalls for the Minions. Just a cute heart with saying. Looks like a little less work.
rko-ideas-galore.com: This one has a whole Minion printable, in different styles. You don’t have to do anything but cut and paste it on. Scroll down and you will see the download.
examiner.com: This one has a very cute printable saying. It is a heart square, so less cutting. Cuter than mine, but looks bigger. No Minion printable.
My little one said, “Mommy, next time can we just buy some to eat!” I would set aside a few for the little ones to snack on! The kids will soon eat them and they will be gone!
Stay tuned this week for some fun Valentine events: frugal Valentine ideas for your honey, some of my favorite books on marriage, and even a science project!
