12 Despicable Me Minion Crafts & Party Ideas

TSM-PPThe Minions (and Gru and the girls) are back! If you thought those sunny little yellow guys from Despicable Me were funny the first time (or in their mini movies), what till you see what kind of trouble they get into in Despicable Me 2.

In the latest story Gru, his adorable girls, and the mischievous Minions are back with a cast of unforgettable new characters in the blockbuster sequel to the worldwide phenomenon. Just as Gru has given up being super-bad to be a super-dad, the Anti-Villain League recruits him to track down a new criminal mastermind and save the world. Partnered with secret agent Lucy Wilde, Gru, along with the wildly unpredictable Minions, must figure out how to keep his cover while also keeping up with his duties as a father. Assemble the Minions for laugh-out-loud comedy in “one of the funniest, most enjoyable movies ever!”
