Now, take the yellow paper and show your child how to fold it in half along the dashed line. This will form the base of the greeting card.

Next, guide your child in positioning the Minion’s overalls on the bottom of the folded card. Use glue to secure them in place.

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 cardstock, 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. Kids are obsessed with paper crafts made with bright colors, so this is always a fun option!

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 (blue construction paper, black construction paper, and other colored paper will also work for the details).

You could also print the card base out on white paper and have the kids paint or use markers to make it yellow.
