I apologize if you can’t get a hold of the little containers we used for this. These were made with Kinder Surprise containers. 

If you can’t use those, maybe find some yellow plastic easter eggs.

You can fill these little guys up with treats and give them out for any holiday or special occasion.

These Minion crafts ideas are perfect for young and old, as long as they are fan of the famous yellow character!

Minion DIY Crafts for Kids: Mini Minion Treat Holders

Craft Supplies: Time to Complete:
  • 15-20 minutes

Age Range:

  • 4 years and up.

Step #1:

Color the bottom half of the container with a dark blue marker. We found that permanent markers worked better for this.

Step #2:

Get a black marker and add a fun hairdo to your minion on the top of the container. 

Step #3:

Just above the opening of the container, use your black marker again and draw on a mouth.

Step #4:

Above your mouth, glue on googly eye (or eyes, depending on what you want your minion to look like).

As we are working with a plastic container, sometimes it is easier to glue with hot glue (but remember, you need supervision for that).

Now, repeat this as many times as you wish and build yourself a minion army!

Fill these cute little minion crafts for kids with wrapped candies and give them out for Valentine’s Day, Easter, Halloween, or just because!
