Fun & Easy Minions Party Games

Best Games to play at a Minions Party

Donte's 7th birthday was a blast with a minion themed party, where the cute and mischievous characters from his favourite movie inspired a creative celebration for my birthday boy. The minion birthday party theme let my imagination run wild as I crafted a unique experience for Donte.

When I first wrote about Donte’s Minions Themed 7th Birthday Party, I talked about my Ideas and Inspiration for Decorations, Food, and a Minions Cake. The minion theme is incredibly versatile, perfect for both boys and girls, and even older kids and adults who are entertained by these amusing creatures Plus, I gathered a treasure trove of minions party ideas to ensure a fun-filled event.

But one of my Favourite parts of planning Donte’s party was the Party Games

Crafting minion party games at home was an easy and enjoyable process. There was a Minion Pinata, Pass the Parcel, Pin the Eye on the Minion and my own Minions variation of Musical Chairs. These games are simple to replicate for your own minion theme party, guaranteeing a memorable celebration for your party boy or girl.

DIY Minions Pinata

The DIY Minion Pinata Party Game that I made for Donte’s Birthday was loved by everyone, and was a fun and easy minion party idea. It was pretty awesome, and although I didn't capture many photos of the process, I'll do my best to share the steps.

First I found a Rectangular Cardboard Box and cut the Top into a Semi-Circle that looked like a Minion’s Head. Once I had a nice shape I poked a few holes through the top and wove Black Satin Ribbon through the holes, with plenty left to tie together in the middle and hang the Pinata.

I filled the box with Wrapped Lollies and wrapped it in Yellow Crepe Paper. For the Overalls and Suspenders, I used Blue Crepe Paper. Then I cut a piece of Black Satin Ribbon, glued on Minion Eye Template, and attached it around the top piece of the Minion to create the eyes, a fun touch for minion party games.

Lastly, I just Painted a Big Smile with Black Acrylic Paint, and cut some Arms & Feet out of Grey Cardboard. We hung our Minion from a roof and let the kids line up to see if they could whack the Candy out of the Pinata!

Minions Pass the Parcel

The Minions Pass the Parcel Party Game was Pretty Cute! Watching the kids eagerly participate in minion party games, passing around a cheerful Minion, was truly delightful.

The Key to Creating this Minions Party Game was to think about how I wanted the Finished Parcel to look, and then build my way up to it. For a Minion, that meant I needed to get to the Shape of a Yellow Rectangle, so I wrapped each Goody in Yellow Crepe Paper.

On the last piece of crepe I added some simple decorations to make the Minion. I wrapped a piece of Black Satin Ribbon about a third of the way down the parcel. Then I just Printed and Cut some Eyes from this Minion Eyes Template. For the finishing touch, I added a Smile and Hair with Black Acrylic Paint, perfectly aligning with the party theme and elevating our minion party games.

You can see the finished Parcel pictured on the left below!

Musical Chairs (Minions Variation)

For Donte’s Minion’s party I adapted the Classic Party Game of Musical Chairs and gave it a Minions Twist, turning it into one of the most memorable minion party games of the event.

While searching for minion party games on Google, I stumbled upon images of Fart Guns & SR-6 Minions Weapons (pictured above to the Right). To ensure they lasted throughout the festivities, I printed these pictures on A4 paper and laminated them, creating durable props for our minions party game.

Essentially, these images became the “Chairs.” I laid them out in a Circle and the Party Kids walked around them as fun Music played in the background. Anytime the music stopped the kids had to jump on one of the Weapons as quickly as possible.

In this fast-paced minion party game, children who couldn't secure a weapon in time were gently eliminated from the round. With each subsequent round, I removed a few weapons, increasing the challenge until only one weapon image remained.

The excitement peaked as the music stopped for the final time, leaving one child victoriously standing on a weapon image, crowning them the winner of this minion party game.

Below, you'll see an image of the party guests engaged in one of our minion party games, circling the Minion Weapons.The game was such a hit that we even took it outdoors, enjoying the beautiful weather. With the only supplies being these DIY images and a Smartphone for music, it’s really convenient to play wherever!

Pin the Eyes on the Minion

'Pin the Eyes on the Minion' was another stand out among our minion party games and party games in general. It’s the Same Objective as the Classic Game, where you Blindfold the Participant, Spin them in a Circle 3 times, and have them try to Correctly Place an Item on a hanging Poster or Sign. For my adaptation, they were Pinning Eyes on a Minion!

For those eager to bring the fun of minion party games into their own home, I have made FREE Printable templates. Just Print the big Minion Picture, and Laminate it if possible so it’s a little more Durable. Then Print & Cut out the Minion Eyes. You probably want to laminate these, too!

I placed some Blu-tak on the Back of the Minion Eyes so that they would stick to the Big Minion as each Child Played the Game. You could also use a little Tape.

To make this minions party game a little simpler, I wrote each child’s name on the back of one of the eye’s so I could tell who the Winner was at the End of the Game!

    Below, you'll find snapshots of the party kids engaged in 'Pin the Eyes on the Minion', one of their favourite minion party games. You might also notice that even the Blindfold I used for the Game had a Creative Minions Twist! I attached Minion Eyes to a piece of Black Ribbon to keep the Theme Going while they Played.
