This Minions inspired holiday family fun post is in partnership with Universal Pictures Home Entertainment. However, All opinions are my own.

One thing I love about the Holidays is all the fun things we get to do together as a family. One of my goals in life is to create special memories with my husband and kiddos every chance we get and there is something about Christmas that creates a lot of opportunities to do just that. One of our holiday fun activities include assembling and decorating gingerbread houses. For the past few years, the kids have done the gingerbread house decorating while I watch (and take pictures) but this year I wanted to be a part of it. So, that exactly what I did.

Inspired by the fact that Despicable Me 3 Special Edition is now available on Blu-ray & DVD, we opted to make a Minions gingerbread house. When I say “make”, I mean using a kit that comes with everything we need to make it look as close as possible to the picture on the box. Just keeping it real…LOL.

Getting to do this with the kiddos was really fun. Creating family memories that will last a lifetime is always the goal…what do you do over the holidays to create special memories with your family?

This is our final masterpiece…what do you think?

Because we were Minions inspired, we also ended up watching Despicable Me 3 together. Fun times!!!

The characters beloved by everyone – Gru, his wife Lucy, their three adorable daughters—Margo, Edith and Agnes—and the Minions provide hours of family fun in this heartwarming comedy. Featuring an All-New Mini Movie, Minion Moments and more, Despicable Me 3 makes for an amazing holiday gift for the whole family. Did you know that the Walmart exclusive features a limited time gift set with a super soft, PLUSH Minion backpack.
