13 Minion Craft Ideas for Kids

By: Jen Oskin, Editor,

Minion Goodie JarsThe movie may be called Despicable Me, but the widely popular minion characters are anything but despicable. While they look like funny yellow tic-tacs wearing overalls, kids seem to get a huge kick out of the mischievous yet adorable minion gang. So if you’ve been on the hunt for easy craft ideas for kids, look no further than this collection of 13 Minion Craft Ideas for Kids.

Minion crafts are great and fun easy crafts for a child's birthday party. Before the festivities start, do some paper crafts and have the kids make a pair of look-alike minion goggles. During the party, guests will have a blast playing games like bowling with minion pins or throwing minion darts. And of course, while you screen the Minions movie, kids can indulge in a classic dessert whose shape guessed it: a minion!

Just admit it. While the Despicable Me movies may be geared towards kids, you know that the minions “gru” on you, too. We guarantee that adults will have just as much fun making these easy craft ideas and party snacks as the kids.
