Kids will look forward to breakfast time with these easy DIY Minions Cups and some big-time excitement unveiling a Minions toy in their cereal box!
I remember, growing up, actually getting butterflies in my stomach about being the first to open a box of cereal and see what little prize was inside. It didn’t happen often, coming from a large family, but when it did, I was beyond thrilled!
I got to watch my kids have the same experience the other day and it made my heart sing.
My kids literally talk about going to see the new Minions Movie every day. We are counting down impatiently until July 10th. Anytime they see a preview for it, they bounce on their seats and do a big belly laugh. It’s just too cute.
We’ve even resorted to speaking “Minion” around here. Words like “ba-boy” for “toy” and “bapple” for “apple”. On occasion, I have to ask the kids to translate, because I’m not accustomed to the language yet. 🙂 It will happen in time.
So when we were at Walmart the other day on the cereal aisle and saw the specially marked Minions General Mills Cereal boxes, we just about did flips! If people weren’t watching, we just might have. 🙂
The kids had a difficult time refraining from opening the boxes then and there.
The anticipation of “Which Minion will I get?” and “Will it be the elusive 7th Minion?” was just too much! The 7th, Prehistoric Minion, is only at Walmart!
But, each Minions movie marked General Mills Cereal box includes an adorable collectible Minion toy. It’s impossible to go wrong.
Drums were rolling, hands were shaking, as my son ripped open the Cheerios box and found…
…Dracula Minion! My daughter was thrilled to see the Caveman Minion in her box of Trix.
Then, and only then, did the kids discover that they were actually quite hungry. Distractions such as this have a way of making you forget. 🙂
We made some sweet little Minion Paper Cups for our breakfast drinks. They are SO easy to throw together and the kids carried them around the house for a while afterwards because they were too fun to put down.
You’ll just need some yellow paper cups, double-stick tape (I’d recommend hot glue for more permanency), big googly eyes and a wide-tipped permanent marker.
Place your googly eye on the cup and trace around it with a pen. Draw a black permanent marker line around this and then replace the eye. Draw marker lines out from the eye or eyes for the straps. Don’t forget the silly, smiley face!
Now enjoy a cold glass of milk or juice to finish off the Magical Minion Morning!
Which Minions toy are your kids looking forward to finding first?
