When it comes to character crafts, I like hinting at the personality, and not necessarily outlining every detail. That not only makes it more doable, but also helps make it look more like the character, even if you’re not a pro at drawing. It also helps make it much more kid-friendly.

I thought they made great minion puppets, but these Popsicle stick minions can also be used as bookmarks, or just for fun. You can stick them into cupcakes for a Minion themed party. They are quick and easy to make, using cheap supplies, so that you can make them at a party too.

For the denim, I used an old pair of overalls that my son outgrew. I’ve used these in numerous projects and it’s one of my most versatile crafting supplies! You can buy scrap jean fabric, but I highly recommend finding an old pair – either yours, or in a thrift store/flea market.

It’s hard to find a Minion craft that even preschoolers can make from start to finish, but this one definitely works! And they will have so much fun with it. If you do choose natural craft sticks instead of yellow ones, you can add a little bit of extra entertainment by painting them.

 

The only part of this that the adult really needs to do is the cutting of the denim, which can (should?) be done in advance of the craft.
