Paper Plate Minion Craft

Are you excited for the new Despicable Me 3 movie? I have to say…Despicable Me is one of my favorite kid movie series. It’s super clever and the minions are hilarious! To celebrate, we made a fun paper plate minion craft! It’s easy, colorful, and requires only basic craft supplies.

This easy, colorful, and fun paper plate minion is perfect for kids!

Easy Paper Plate Minion Craft

My 4-year-old niece refers to minions as “the funny guys” and she is so right! When my kids discovered the stack of white paper plates in our craft cabinet, they couldn’t help but make some funny guys of their own. Using paint, plates, construction paper, and buttons, kids of all ages will enjoy making minions at home.

To Make This Craft You Will Need

  • 2 white paper plates
  • yellow, blue, and black paint
  • scissors
  • black construction paper
  • large wiggly eyes
  • black permanent marker
  • 2 black buttons
  • glue


After gathering supplies, invite kids to paint 1 paper plate yellow and the other paper plate blue. Allow the paint to dry completely.

When the plates are dry, cut the blue plate in half. Glue it down to the yellow plate.

Cut straps for the minion’s overalls from the remaining blue paper plate. Glue them down. Next, cut 2 large black circles (we traced the bottom of mason jar) and glue the large wiggly eyes to the center.
