As you probably already know, we’re a bit obsessed with the Minions here at Mom Spark. It’s hard not to be, with them being so hilariously funny and super duper cute and all! So, naturally were very, very excited to hear that that Despicable Me 3 Special Edition on Blu-ray & DVD releases on Tuesday, December 5th. That’s just a few days from now, which is just in time for the holidays!

The Despicable Me 3 Special Edition includes an all-new mini-movie, Minion Moments and more. All of your favorite characters, Gru, his wife Lucy, their three adorable daughters—Margo, Edith and Agnes—and the Minions, are back and guaranteed to make your kids giggle for hours!

To celebrate the new release, I have put together a fun do-it-yourself project that is perfect for the holidays as well.

WHAT YOU NEED

HOW TO MAKE

  1. Using sponge brush, paint lid with denim paint until well-covered. When completely dry, add water, a large amount of glitter, and glycerin the jar until almost full. Close with the lid.
  2. Flip jar over (lid on bottom) and apply a strip of 7-inch black construction paper for the “goggles” using a hot glue gun. Hot glue one or two eyes on top of paper strip. Create a mouth (a smile or circle will work) from black paper and secure with craft glue.

  3. Shake the jar up!

Despicable Me 3 Special Edition on Blu-ray and DVD makes the perfect holiday gift this season. I plan on wrapping a copy up and placing in my youngest son’s stocking for Christmas Day. I can’t wait to see his face when he opens it.
