Despicable Me ‘Minion’ Easter Eggs

The sons all love the minions. Even my teens packed the couch for the newest installment of the franchise. I’ve actually had to take the fart gun away on occasion because while living in a house of dudes I can appreciate a good fart joke (obviously, I’m the one who bought them the thing), but even I have my limits some days. Still the Minions are adorable and they made the perfect little Easter egg craft, especially for the youngest son’s little hands. He though the idea was amazing, and it was simple enough for him to execute with minimal help from Mom. Any project that he can do on his own is almost always a hit, I mean who knew that 6 was the new 16? Mr. Independent!
