This easy and clever Minions Birthday Gift is sure to win the heart of the receiver!  And, you can include a Minions Pictionary Game to play at the party!
We are experiencing Minions Mania at our house!  How about you?  My kids are obsessed (and that's an understatement) with all things Minions and are literally counting down the days...even hours...until the movie releases on July 10th.  My kids seriously eat, sleep and breathe Minions right now!  It's all their little brains can think about.  :)

We are already planning on hitting the theaters to watch it as soon as it is there, and I know we are just going to love it!

Because we know of some cute cousins who are also experiencing Minions fever, and who happen to be having birthdays very soon, we put together a simple yet clever gift with that theme in mind.
I took the kids to Walmart and let them pick out some Hallmark birthday cards featuring the adorable little yellow guys in goggles.
My kiddos were enticed by the ones with sound and toys on the front, of course.  :)

Then we headed home to write silly sentiments inside.
My kids speak Minion.  I'm still learning, but they can carry on a conversation and completely understand what the other one is saying.  I admire them for that.  :)

I'm catching onto the language quickly, especially since it's imperative that I know when they are actually asking for a healthy snack (it doesn't happen often around here), which comes out sounding like "bable".  I've become accustomed to quickly responding by handing them an apple. 

So naturally my daughter had to write her birthday well wishes in Minion terms, which I'm sure her cousins will appreciate.
And then, because what's a birthday card without an accompanying treat, we put together a quick Minions-themed refreshment for the kiddos to enjoy on their special day.  I grabbed some Mini Lemon Bites at the Walmart bakery because they just had to be yellow and because lemon equals luscious!  Then, the kids helped me spread on black masks with frosting and press in edible eyes.  We chose not to pipe on the faces, but you certainly could!

Easy peasy lemon squeezy!
I just can't get enough of Minions right now, so I also put together a little pictionary game to play with the kiddos this summer when they are bored!  Simply whisper the English term that's in parentheses into a child's ear, then he or she will draw it and the other players will need to guess what it is, but in Minion language, or the term on the far left.  Too fun!  It's sure to provide lots of laughs!
