Do you have a little minion fan? I sure do. I also have a LEGO lover. We have watched all the Minion movies and my son adores Kevin, Stuart, and Bob. At home, we are always working on our creative LEGO activities with our LEGO basic bricks. Although, we enjoy building more complicated sets with specialty pieces, my son is still at an age where he is learning how each piece works. I want him to be able to come up with his own fun creations like these LEGO Minions with minimal help from us.

LEGO MINIONS

When I saw these neat {but more intricate} LEGO minions by Frugal Fun 4 Boys, I knew we had to come up with our own Minions from basic bricks. This building activity is perfect for the young builder. While the one above is great for the more seasoned LEGO builder! Both options are great for building your favorite minions! Grab your basic bricks and get started building these fun and easy minions today!

The pictures of the Minions below will give you an idea of what you need to complete the project. You can create your own Minions too! This LEGO Minion building project is a great lesson in symmetry, math, and engineering for young kids. Terrific STEM with a fun theme! I love when learning happens through play. We used our son’s interests to have a fun and educational experience.

Take a close look at each of the minions and you will see exactly how we created Stuart, Kevin, and Bob! We use just our basic bricks, but you can get creative if you want to work with specialty pieces too! We wanted our son to do as much as he could without our constant help. Once we worked and reworked the first Minion, it was easier to do the other two.

We did take into consideration eye placement and height after carefully studying Minion pictures on the iPad. My son thought this was an awesome part of Minion building, but it does incorporate technology into the process. Please don’t mind the very used looking bricks as they were my husbands when he was a kid!
