We’re continuing our Minion madness this week with another fun Minion craft for kids! We had so much fun painting the clothespins and playing with these toys after they were dry. You could do this for the evil (purple) minions, too, but we’re fans of the cute little yellow guys.
- Paint the clothespins twice if you’re using a water-based paint. We used tempera paint, and the yellow didn’t show up that great at first. Give the coats plenty of time to dry before moving to the next step.
- Glue googly eyes to the clothespins, and allow the glue to dry.
- Draw a smile and hair on your minions to complete them.
That’s it! My son loves clothespin toys because he can clip them onto his clothes and books, and I love them because they’re such an easy and frugal craft to make. Seriously, you can get clothespins at the Dollar Store for about $1 for 24 clothespins.
Of course, my son quickly started painting his hands, so we decided to do a Minion footprint craft, too. After all, can you ever have too much fun with Minions? I don’t think so!
Don’t forget to check out our Minion smoothie for kids, too. It was a big hit in our house!
