Easy Minions Party Ideas is sponsored by Universal Pictures. All thoughts and experiences are my own.
This July, go back to where it all began. The Minions have their own movie and it hits theaters July 10th! Weston is thrilled about going to see the Minions movie and in honor of it’s release, we had a few friends over to celebrate! Putting together a little get together was a breeze with these easy Minions party ideas! Check them out and get planning before you hit the theater with your family!
Easy Minions Party Ideas
Every kid I know is excited to see the Minions movie. Some of the older kids have seen Despicable Me and Despicable Me 2 but others, like Weston, are meeting these crazy characters for the first time! What better way to introduce them than to have a themed party or play date!
Using the yellow, blue, and white as a color scheme for the party is easy and so perfect. The colors are bright and you can easily find streamers, cups, plates, and other decorations in those colors. And by opting for solid color supplies, you can use the leftover for your next party too!
Balloons and streamers can be used to make a simple photo backdrop or backdrop for your food table like we did!
Another great way to decorate and add that Minions touch to your color scheme is to pick up a few themed items. We used a Minions beach towel, along with a beach ball, to spice up the food table and make it a bit more fun!
Some blue and yellow bottles of bubbles worked great for some extra color on the table. I got them at the dollar store and they made great additions to our favor bags as well!
The great thing about the Minions being so popular is that it makes party food easy! Next time you’re out shopping, take a closer look at the store shelves. You’ll spot quite a few of our Minions friends on some very kid-friendly food products. It’s a great way to put together your get together easily!
For our party we stocked up on Minions shaped crackers, applesauce cups, and apple juice boxes. I almost grabbed some Minions graham crackers but we had other plans for a sweet treat! Check out how easy it is to make your very own Minions Munch Snack Mix!
Minions Munch Snack Mix
What You Need:
- 1 bag Cookies & Cream Muddy Buddies
- 1 large bag of M&M Candies (sort out the blue and yellow candies)
- 1 cup mini marshmallows
- Candy Eyeballs (affiliate link)
What You Do:
- Pour the Muddy Buddies, M&Ms, and marshmallows in a bowl.
- Mix gently.
- Top with candy eyeballs.
This recipe is so easy that the kids can even make it on their own! It’s a great way to get the whole family involved in party planning!
You can also put each ingredient in small bowls and let the kids at your party make their own individual cups of Minion Mix with the ingredients they like best!
If you’re looking for party favors to give your guests, keep it simple. We were lucky to have goodie bags provided by Universal Pictures but as you can see, there are tons of products featuring those crazy Minions! So keep it simple and find a few things that fit your budget and offer them to your guests as favors. Weston loved the little boxes with Minions figures to build and everyone loved their new beach balls!
You can always supplement your favors with other items like blue and yellow bubbles or even a bag of blue and yellow candy. Just keep it simple and make your life easy!
It’s amazing how much fun a kid can have with a cute pair of Minions sunglasses!
Throwing a party with a Minions theme guarantees that there will be plenty of fun! Kids can’t resist smiling when they see them! You could also have a movie night with friends and screen Despicable Me and Despicable Me 2 to build up the anticipation for the Minions movie!
Minions opens in theaters on July 10th and is sure to be a summer hit! So don’t miss it!
