How To Make Minions With Kinder Surprise Eggs

Ever since Despicable Me millions of people have been bitten by the Minions bug. They’re the hugely entertaining, gloriously moronic, gifted, banana loving goofballs who jabber a bizarre language and live to serve their master.

Pros & Cons To This Minion Making Guide

This is a cheap, fun way to make a little Minion companion and it’s highly customisable. However, there are notable downsides. The most obvious is this is a fiddly way to make a Minion and you’ll need to get precise materials. It’s highly advisable you don’t let children make Minions this way alone – supervise any activities as sharp implements are involved.

Another problem is Kinder Surprise Eggs are banned in America, so if you’re from the US you will have difficulty acquiring the necessary shell from within. An alternative are Choco Surprise eggs, although the casing isn’t quite Minion shaped. Check your local supermarket for similar objects and perhaps purchase some yellow paint.
