How to Make Minion Easter Eggs

We love Easter Egg Hunts with our family and we also love the movie Despicable Me and find the Minions quite amusing!  We decided that making Minion Easter Eggs would be an awesome idea!  They’re easier than you could imagine.  My kids are begging for us to use these eggs as the “special” eggs (as in more valuable).  I’m thinking we will.  It’s funny how a yellow and blue mismatched Easter egg gets them all giddy!

These are very simple.  Another blogger was able to use electric tape to make the straps to the glasses a little straighter lines that what we were able to accomplish by going at it freehand.  Also, google eyes make them look even more professional.
