With the recent release of the new Minions movie, those funny little creatures have never been more popular. In fact, we’ve noticed that Minion parties are becoming more and more popular. That’s why today, we want to show you how to host a summer movie party with a fun Minion theme. Just dig out that old Despicable Me DVD and take it back to the first time you laid eyes on those lovable creatures. Whether you’re hosting a birthday celebration or just a summer shindig, these Minion party ideas will make your movie party better than a bunch of bananas!
As any Minion fan knows, Minions love dressing in costume. Invite your guests to wear their best Minion or Despicable Me costume. They can be creative and make variations to their character like a baby Minion or a hula dancing Minion. Make it a costume contest to encourage everyone to participate and offer the winner a fun prize.
While you’re waiting for guests to come in, you can organize some games and activities for your guests. We suggest a round of Pin the Goggles on the Minion. You can also play “Steal the Moon” which is like Steal the Bacon but with a fun twist inspired by Gru’s scheme in the movie. Instead of freeze ray, you can play freeze tag and burn off some energy before the movie begins. You can also have an arts and crafts area where kids can create their own Minion using pre-cut construction paper.
For hungry guests, you can serve food inspired by your favorite scenes from the movie. For example, Stuffed Crust pizza! Everyone knows that Minions love Stuffed Crust. You can also serve “cookie bots” as a sweet treat. Minions also love bananas, but everyone loves a banana split. Plus ice cream would be a great way to cool off from the summer heat.
With these fun Minion party ideas, you and your guests are sure to have a good time! Do you have a fun Minion party idea that you’d like to share? If so, leave us a comment!
