Dress up as characters in the movie. A pink dress and tights makes an easy Scarlett, and blue overalls with a yellow t-shirt transforms people into minions!
Hang blue and yellow streamers from the ceiling and twist all the way to the floor. Put alternating blue and yellow balloons at the top of the streamers. If you do this in front of a wall, it makes a nice backdrop for a food or gift table!
For an interesting backdrop, cut out pictures of minions and paste them onto paper plates. Arrange the paper plates behind the food or gift table. You can arrange these to make a certain shape, such as the age of your child, or just do a 5 by 5 square.

Minion Party Games
Steal the Crown
Break everyone into two teams, and give each team a toy crown. Have the teams hide the toy crowns somewhere secret, then try to find the other team’s crown. To make this game harder for older children, incorporate freeze tag into the game by having team members tag other members of the team. The tagged player is then frozen until a member from their team untags them.
Minion Egg Toss
Decorate eggs to look like minions using blue and yellow paint. Use a black marker to draw on eyes and a mouth. Pair the guests into groups of two and give each pair an egg. Have the guests stand five steps away from their partner and toss their minion egg to their partner. If the partner catches the egg, have each partner take one step back and toss the egg again. The last team to drop their egg wins!

Call out minion pictures and have guests mark off which ones they have on their board. The first one to hit Bingo wins!
