Can you believe all those amazing heart ideas. I’m sure there is a little something for everyone in all of these heart projects. Mine might be more for the kids (or the kids at heart). I came up with this idea while watching my niece. She is obsessed with minions. Except she calls them minis and always wants to watch them. She just cracks up laughing. I knew this project passed the test when she called it a minion and wouldn’t give it back.
What you will need:
- Printable Heart Valentines
- black, gray, and white paper
Start by cutting out a gray circle and then a white one that is smaller than the gray circle. Glue the white circle to the gray circle. Add a pupil using a Sharpie. Cut a small black strip long enough to go around the Twinkie. Wrap the small black strip around the top of the Twinkie. Gluing it to the back of the Twinkie and then together. Glue the eye on the front of the black strip. Add a small half smile on the Twinkie wrapper. Glue the heart valentine to the Twinkie and it is all done!
In the end it should look like this. These are perfect to give to classmates, friends and kids.
I love that it looks like a minion, but it didn’t have to be super complicated. I love that it is just the eye and a smile that make it work. It is a perfect valentine project for the kids. Get them tracing circles and cutting them out and gluing. They will love these minions, I promise!
I even got the “You’re one in a Minion,” idea from my cute niece’s minion shirt. She basically inspired this whole project.
Grab you minion Twinkies and pop in some Despicable Me while you check out the rest of these heart projects.
