Jumping Minion

Minions are quoted regularly in this house so I thought a Minion craft might get them excited to create.

All you need is 2 plastic cups and a rubberband or two, something to poke holes with and paper if you also want to make a Minion. You can make whatever character/animal/vehicle you want to jump.

Create your character first

An adult can punch 4 holes in one of the cups near the rim.

Tie 2 pieces of rubberband in an “x” across the cup through the holes.

Turn the cup over and adhere your character to the cup

To make them jump push the cup with the rubberbands onto the other cup and release

Of course they made them yell things as they sailed through the air 😉 You could have Minion jumping contests or jumping accuracy contests. This would be fun as a party game too changing out the character to fit your party!
