Minion Paper Craft – Getting ready!

  • If you are going to be crafting minions from scratch.. you will want to stock up on yellow and blue paper. (We got ours here >>> US/UK)
  • You will also need a good glue stick (we prefer these >>> US/ UK)
  • And of course scissors (our favourite scissors for kids are these – they cut really well and are ambidextrous >>> US/ UK)
