Minions Music

DID YOU KNOW that if you go to the free music sharing program SPOTIFY and type “MINIONS” into the search bar you’ll get a soundtrack that covers every song from every Minions movie? IT’S TRUE! The perfect soundtrack to your rocking’ Minions party!

Make Your Own Minions

This one will be very age and ability dependent but this is a great idea for a crafty party. A Make-Your-Own-Minion station will let little ones get creative and come up with their own creations that even Gru would approve of!

Minions Balloons

What more explanation is required? Get yellow balloons and draw your Minion faces right onto them. Better yet – get the kids to do it! How fun!


As any fan of the movies knows, Minions are CRAZY for bananas. You can serve trays of them, have a banana shaped or flavoured cake or even dress up a few of them. Cuties.

Minion Poppers

We love making poppers for any festive occasion. You can make some really cute ones for Halloween and Christmas and MINIONS PARTIES are no different!

There are a lot of classic children’s party games that you could take inspiration from for a Minions party ideas ‘twist’. What’s the time Mr Gru? Yellow Minion, Yellow Minion, I call over.., Musical Minions. There are HEAPS of options that could be really, really fun!

Viewing Party

This is a bit of a cheat (and one that the parents might really enjoy) but why not pop on one of the movies after the cake and have the kids settle down a little while you start to deal with some of the chaos?
