How to Throw the Ultimate Minions Party

Minions party - Minions toys

This summer the Minions movie hit cinemas - resulting in what was already a nationwide obsession with the little yellow creatures going into overdrive.

As a parent, it's unlikely that you haven't heard of the 'Minions'. But if they've somehow passed you by, they're essentially small, comical characters with their own language, who've been around for thousands of years. All they want is to serve the most despicable villain around but unfortunately, they have a bad habit of getting them killed due to their persistent oafishness.

However, the only thing that you really need to know is that kids love them. And if you're planning a party, 'Minions' is guaranteed to be a popular theme. Here are some great ideas.

Minion Food

When it comes to party food, you can really get creative with a Minions theme. Some great ideas include:

We love these Minion cake pops by Kelly at Life Made Sweeter. They're made by mixing and shaping frosting and crumbled cake, before dipping the cake balls in yellow icing and decorating. Great fun to make and they're guaranteed to go down well with the kids! You can find a more detailed recipe here.

Minion Decorations

Minion decorations are all about the colour scheme. A great example is:

These table decorations by Cecilia at Dearest Lou are perfect for the Minion theme. A blue table covering and yellow, white and blue tableware is the easiest way to get the look. On a side note, we also love this blue and yellow popcorn idea!

Minion Games

No party is complete without some fun games and activities - don't forget to hand out prizes such as this Stretchy Smiley Man and these Mini Spinning Rattles. Here are some of our favourite ideas:

Stick the Goggles on the Minion

Minions party - Stick the goggles on the Minion

A twist on the classic 'stick the tail on the donkey', 'stick the googles on the Minion' is guaranteed to be lots of fun. First, draw a Minion on a large piece of paper (minus the goggles, of course!) and then draw some goggles on a piece of card and cut them out. Place some double sided tape on the back of the goggles, blindfold each child in turn and see if they can guess where to stick the goggles on the Minion!

Minion Fancy Dress

Fancy dress is always a popular party activity and Minion fancy dress is a great opportunity to get creative. The simplest outfits only require a long sleeved yellow top and dungarees. However, if you want to go all out, making goggles and decorating yellow hats (as in the image) will be lots of fun.

Clean the Minions

Minion party - clean the minions

The kids will love this great activity idea from Alli at Cupcake Diaries. First, print photos of Minions and get them laminated. You can then water down washable finger paint and paint over each Minion. The kids then have to spray the Minions clean with water pistols - the first one to clean their Minion, wins!

A Minion party theme is guaranteed to be popular with the kids - plus you can have lots of fun creating the food décor and activities.
