The holidays are an exciting time and this year is no exception! Despicable Me 3 Special Edition is now available on Blu-ray & DVD!
That’s right, the #1 animated comedy of the year, Despicable Me 3 is the ultimate holiday gift with an All-New Mini Movie, Minion Moments and more!
We are celebrating the characters beloved by everyone – Gru, his wife Lucy, their three adorable daughters—Margo, Edith and Agnes—and the Minions!
Family Movie Night deserves cake! Minion cake!
And inspired by the Walmart exclusive which features a limited time gift set with a super soft, PLUSH Minion backpack, we also created a festive and fun craft of English Crackers (poppers).
English Crackers (Poppers) are fun to make and fun to open.
Here’s what you’ll need to make your own Minions English Crackers:
Toys (we used Minions and Despicable Me stickers)
Jokes (we used “Minions Quotes” from Google)
Double sided tape
Toilet Paper tubes
Here’s how to make your own:
Lay out the tissue paper (we used one-half sheet of yellow and one-half sheet of blue stacked on top of one another).
Fill your toilet paper tube with toys, candy, and jokes.
Center filled tube on tissue paper.
Roll tube inside tissue paper.
Place double stick tape on end of tissue paper to seal the paper at the end.
Tie end with curling ribbon. We used 12-inches of blue and 12-inches of yellow.
Use blade of scissors to curl the curling ribbon on each end.
Cut out Minion decal (see below) and attached double stick tape to underside.
Roll decal around tube.
Attached double stick tape to the backside of other end of decal and roll to attach.
You have just completed your first Minion themed English Cracker.
Repeat until you have enough for your party.
MacKenzie used them to decorate the Christmas Cactus.
To open, pull both ends.
About Despicable Me 3:
Illumination, the studio that brought you Sing, The Secret Life of Pets and the Despicable Me franchise, continues the adventures of Gru and his family in Despicable Me 3.
After he is fired from the Anti-Villain League for failing to take down Balthazar Bratt, the latest evil mastermind to threaten humanity, Gru finds himself in the midst of a major identity crisis. But when a mysterious stranger shows up to inform Gru that he has a long-lost twin brother — a brother who desperately wishes to follow in his twin’s despicable footsteps — the former super-villain rediscovers just how good it feels to be bad.
