The Minions are coming!

My daughter loved the first Despicable Me movie and has been asking (begging) to see the 2nd movie. I wasn't willing to spend the money on a trip to the movies today but a minion craft was received with much excitement! I checked Pintrest and the web but Minion inspired crafts were few and far between so I decided to make my own.

blue, yellow, and black construction paper
goggly eyes
popsicle sticks

Step 1:

Cut several rectangular shape with rounded edges.
Trace and cut a piece of blue to cover the bottom 1/3.
Cut two small rectangles.

Step 2:
Glue the "pants" on the Minion. 
Add the overall straps.
Use a marker to add the button on the overall strap.
Add eye(s).

Even my husband couldn't resist participating in this craft.
Step 3:
Use marker to add goggles, hair, or other accessories.
Add arms and legs by using scraps of paper to cut hands, arms, feet, and legs.

Step 4:
Put glue on popsicle stick and attach to back of Minion.

Now you have your very own group of Minions to do your bidding! 

What fun crafts have you come up with?
