This is a great activity for Thanksgiving for your children to ART, WRITE and THINK about what they are thankful for.
This product includes 15 pages that you can PRINT and MAKE in for your bulletin board.
With the purchase of this product, you will receive EVERYTHING you will need in order to make these minions (minus the paper).
The FIRST page will give you some examples of what my kids made in our classroom.
The SECOND page will give you DIRECTIONS on HOW TO PRINT this packet. You will NOT need to print everything. You have a couple of choices when you decide to make these. Please keep reading for a description of your choices.
The THIRD page will give you DIRECTIONS on HOW TO ASSEMBLE the minions once you have printed out your pages.
The FOURTH page is a blank shorts page. I have included this in case you would like to save money on printing ink. I have taken scrapbook paper in the past and have cut it to 8.5 x 11 sheets of paper. I run this page on the back side of the paper (the white side) for as many kids as I need. Then you will follow the directions exactly they are after this.
The REMAINING pages are what you will need in order to make the minions. There are directions on each page that will tell you what color paper you will need to make the copies on (or print them in the printer).
There are pre-made shorts included in this packet. The first set is a dark brown and white plaid. The second set is an orange and cream plaid. The third is a yellow and white polka dot. The fourth is a orangish brownish background with white polka dots. The last is a lighter brown with plain (like in the example on the front cover).
For the colored shorts, you can print these IF YOU NEED THEM. If you are not opting to do the scrapbook paper route, you will need to print these. When I printed these for my kids, I asked them which shorts they wanted before I printed them.
Once everything is printed, please follow the directions on how to make these sweet little guys.
Once you have assembled all of your minions, have your students write about what they are thankful for. I used black pens for our writing.
