The girls are loving any Minion activity I can devise for them at the moment. I thought it would be fun if they could make their own Minions using play dough. There are so many different Minions and you can make them however you want.

We made some bright yellow play dough. We used yellow food colouring and a bit of glitter to make it perfect for Minions. There could only be one scent – BANANA! We added a couple of teaspoons of banana flavouring and just the smell of it was fun. Other things we used were:Minion Play dough

  • googly eyes
  • black pipe cleaners
  • blue cup cake cases
  • black ribbon/elastic

We also used some small plastic lids which came from packaging and happened to be the right shape.

The girls didn’t need any help to make a Minion. The googly eyes and black pipe cleaners instantly made it recognisable.

I liked how small differences in the face of the Minions made them look really different.

The girls were very happy with their finished play dough Minions.

This would be a fun sensory activity for any Minions fan and would be fun if you were having a Minion party.
