Toilet Paper Roll Minions

When I read the prompt When Pinterest Comes to Life on The Nectar Collective I originally thought I was going to make something much more . . . cool. I wasn’t exactly thinking I would be linking up a kids craft, but hey, why not!

A few weeks ago Raeca asked if we could make a craft together (so sweet, love her), so I let her look at my with the kids board on Pinterest and once she saw these minions (or min-ee-ons like she calls them) she knew that’s what she wanted to make.

Of course she needed to branch out and make a pink girl minion as well so we jazzed her up with a flower in her “hair”.

You can see the full tutorial here if you are interested in making your own minions. 😉

Just a heads up: after this week I’ll no longer be offering ad swaps, at this moment they are currently booked out until December 1st so if you were interested in getting in on a free space this is your chance!

All the above photos were taken with the Canon 5D Mark II and 28mm 1.8 lens.

Do you have a favorite craft you like to do with kids?
I’d love to hear it!
