Who doesn’t love the DESPICABLE ME movies?!? I think grown ups and kids alike will agree that minions are just about the most adorable little creatures around. This DESPICABLE ME craft is not only fun to make but it will give endless hours of fun for the family during game nights, on rainy days, in the backyard, or even on road trips!
DESPICABLE ME – DIY Tic Tac Toe
- 8 rocks that are fairly smooth in round or oval shapes
- craft paint in blue, yellow, white, black, and purple
- silver paint pen
- rectangular or square framed chalkboard
- several small paint brushes
Instructions: There really isn’t much to making this craft besides painting the rocks. This is also the fun part! I love painting rocks and my kiddos really enjoyed getting in on the minion making! You’re going to split the rocks into 2 groups – purple minions and yellow so the opponents pieces are easy to tell apart.
Begin by painting 4 rocks yellow and 4 purple. You’ll want to cover the entire face of each rock with 2 coats of paint, allowing the paint to dry between coats. Once the yellow and purple paint has dried, use black paint to add the goggle bands to both colors of minions. Also use the black paint to give the purple minions “pants”.
While the black paint dries, use the blue paint to add the “pants” to the yellow minions. After the black paint is completely dry, add a small white circle to the black goggle band for the eyes of the minions. Give some minions 1 eye and some 2. When the white paint is totally dry, use a small amount of black paint to give the eyes a pupils and to add a mouth for each minion. To finish up the minions, use a silver paint pen to outline the white circle eyes to complete the look of the goggles. Use a piece of chalk to draw the tic tac toe lines onto the framed chalkboard and your DESPICABLE ME – DIY Tic Tac Toe game is ready to use!
