If your house is anything like my house, you LOVE Despicable Me and Despicable Me 2. And seriously, the minions are the best so how could you NOT love the movies?!? You may even find me calling my boys my little minions.
Every year, my big boys and I collaborate on what to hand out for Valentine’s for school. I try to avoid the store bought ones, for one I don’t like the commercialism associated with Valentine’s day and two homemade is so much more fun! It’s not always the easiest way, but the best things in life aren’t easy anyway.
I saw Emma‘s twinkie minions and knew that I loved them and the boys would too! I used her printable for the tag but added my own twist to them as well.
Here’s what you’ll need:
Twinkies (or knockoff version)
black construction paper cut into thin strips
baker’s twine or string
double sided tape
printable tag found here
Love the printed tags. I didn’t want to cut out each heart, so I left the tags as squares. Use the double sided tape to tape down the black strips.
Punch a hole in the corner of the tag and use the string to wrap your little minions. We mixed it up and had some one-eyed minions and some two-eyed minions.
