Despicable Me 2 is such a great kids’ movie that I could watch it over and over, and I’m not even a kid anymore. My sisters and I used to pretend to be minions and constantly reenact scenes from the movie, much to my parents dislike. Randomly shouting ‘bananas!’, as the minions do, was a favorite of ours.

They provide hours of entertainment, and if you love Gru, Margo, Edith, and Agnes as much as I do, then you will have a blast with these easy crafts for kids.
