Despicable Me activities and the Minions are so hot right now and with the new movie coming out I thought it might be fun to round up some ways to learn with those cute yellow fellows.
Learning with Minions! Who knew, right? But there are actually some super fun activities that you can try that all have a learning twist.
I found Minion activities that had math, science, LEGO (yay!), sewing, art, and language plus more ideas.

Despicable Me Activities!
Memory Game Despicable MeDespicable Me LabyrinthMinions: Seek and Find
In this Minion Math Game the Minions are on a quest to find a new master to follow.
Building with LEGO is an awesome learning activity. Try these LEGO minions. If you don’t have all the pieces go check the selection at the Pick-a-Brick section of the LEGO store.
Very fun Despicable Me Word Search which is free to print.
Download this free Minions activity. Use the Sentence Game (click on the picture of the game) and make a stack of word cards for a fun language activity.
Grab your sharpies and pastels. Time to learn to draw a Minion.
4 printable games to play. Match the words, matching minions, a maze and a spot the difference game.
Learn to sew with this super neat finger puppet.Basic sewing is a skill I think all kids should learn. This is a fun way to do it.
Get in a bit of science play with this jumping minion project. It is super fun to launch them. Have a contest to see what you need to do to make them go the highest or the furthest.
You are simply going to love these Brush bots. Grab a motor now and get ready to make them because once your kids see them they are going to want to get started right away.

I have to confess we have not watched the Minions movie yet, but the Minions seem to be all over my newsfeeds. Love the idea of bringing an educational value to some projects I know my kids will love! Thank you for putting a great list together!
