Despicable Me Minions – Finger Puppets

| June 10, 2013 | 6 Comments

You will soon see that, Despicable Me is all the RAGE in our house at the moment, we have three fab and fun Minion crafts coming up over the next week, so I hope you like those funny little yellow characters too!!!

The lovely people at Universal challenged me to come up with some videos – showing you how to make Minion Finger Puppets, how to make some Minion Cupcakes and how to make a Minion Fancy Dress costume! (Own your Despicable Me DVD today).

We started off with the Finger Puppets – as they are super duper quick and easy to make.

I think they would be a great craft activity for Despicable Me Birthday Party or for a Despicable Me movie night. 

Materials: Yellow, blue, black felt (and a little grey optional), googly eyes, white glue and black wool

Do take care with the quality of your felt – as discussed in the video – cheap felt will need a hot glue gun for glueing, whilst good quality felt will be fine with good white glue!

See how we did:

    Ever since my 3 year old saw the despicable me 2 trailer in the lorax DVD we’ve had a minion mad house! I had to buy the first despicable me DVD, the sleepy kittens book and I made your kinder egg minions and some out of fimo!!! My 3 year old claims the one eyes minion is him and one with 2 eyes is his little sister!
    Will be making your finger puppets :)

    Thank you xx

  3. Oh we love Despicable Me. these look fab. We will have to have a go.

  4. That bit about cheap felt and PVA glue just solved one of my recent crafting fails — thanks! My son appreciated the video. He’s really curious about the minions and asked how you made them. But now he’s asking for some train finger puppets. What a surprise. :-)
