Make This Craft In The Classroom

We’ve made this minion card easy to make with our free printable template. Inside the template, the second part of it makes it easy to use with groups of kids.

Instead of printing on white paper, you’ll print the pieces individually on the colored paper that’s listed on the bottom. This way, you don’t need to trace and cut out twice.

If you’re doing this craft with kids who can use scissors well, then you can let the kids cut out the pieces they need and you won’t have any prep work.

If you’re doing it with younger kids who can’t cut out details, you’ll need to have them precut in order to do this craft.

We also want to mention that if you can’t use yellow card stock you can always substitute with yellow construction paper. You could also print the card base out on white paper and have the kids paint or use markers to make it yellow.
