When my youngest son asked for a Minion birthday party, I knew we were going to need to come up with some fun things to make this a really fun party. It all started with the invites.
Kathy and I spent an afternoon making these invitations and they were a huge hit with the kids.
Since we were holding the party at our house, I decided that the best way to maximize our space was to use centers. The kids were in 1st grade this was also a concept they were familiar with. So food in one room, activities spaced out and the kids kind of rotated through.
One center was a create your own minion, which we used toilet paper tubes for.
Another was our Box of Shame and minion cut-out picture taking center. The kids had a ball with that.
We set up a Pin-the-Eyeball-on-the-Minion game.
And we had the big kids help out doing fake tattoos, taking pictures and generally helping out.
We also had a lot of fun coming up with food names for everything.
My hardest task was the cupcakes! The cake part was fine, but the decorating was way harder than I had figured on and my frosting came out all weird. Don’t look too close. The kids thought they were awesome though!
We also put together a few favors to had out at the end.
The minion mix was especially fun, we included little candy eyeballs in the mix!
