This minion craft is inspired by our favorite Despicable Me and Minions movies. We love the minions! I happened to see my blue and yellow eos lip balms together and thought, these could be easily turned into minions. I was right. It only takes a few minutes with googly eyes and a glue gun. I’ll tell you how I did it.
My kids went way more nuts over these minion lip balms than I expected. Judging from their reactions, I think it is safe to say that these will be a hit at your house, too. We don’t have any minion party planned just yet, but if we do, I’ll be giving these minion gifts out as party favors.
How to Make-a-Minion Lip Balm
- Blue eos Lip Balm
- Yellow eos Lip Balm
- Googly Eyes
- Hot Glue Gun
- Black Sharpie Marker
1. Swap out a yellow and a blue piece from each of the eos lip balms so that each lip balm has a yellow piece on top and a blue piece on bottom.
2. Hot glue googly eyes on the yellow piece. Don’t be shy – use lots of glue to keep those eyes in place.
3. Use a black Sharpie marker to draw on the minion’s goggles straps, hair and mouth.
And that is how you make a minion lip balm with eos lip balm containers. It’s so easy, right? My only wish is that the lip balms were BANANA flavored. That would be perfect!
