Are there any Minion fans in your family? My boys love the little yellow creatures and I must say, so do I. Last time we went to the dollar store, they wanted minion coloring books and I grabbed a bag of polished river rocks to paint them into minions.
Materials: stones, blue yellow and white acrylic paint, black marker
Step 1: Choose your rocks. They don’t have to be perfectly rounded and have a smooth surface. Any rock will do as long as it is big enough for you to paint on.
Step 2: Paint the overalls. You will need 3 coats of paint.
Step 3: Paint the rest of the Minions using your yellow paint.
Step 4: Once the paint is dried use a pencil to outline the eyes, and then paint them white.
Step 5: Use a black marker for the mouth and glasses frames.
Before handing the painted Minion rocks to my boys, I wanted to have a little fun on my own and created two cards. I only added a few balloons and drew arms and legs for the little fellows.
Now it’s my kids’ turn to play with the Minions and I’m happy to report they built houses for each of them.
