Fun Despicable Me Party Activities for Kids

Despicable Me: Party Activities for Kids

Pop the Minion

One of the party activities for kids that is popular is very easy and may remind you of the balloon popping game you play at the carnival each year. All you need are some yellow or Despicable Me balloons, a large bulletin board, darts and thumbtacks. Just attach the balloons to the bulletin board and have the kids try to pop them. Have different prizes for the number of balloons popped.

Operation With a Twist

Despicable Me: Party Activities for Kids
Party activities for kids can include classic games, like Operation, but how about adding a twist? Instead of just trying to take out the bones without getting “shocked,” give the kids a challenge. Have them try it with one hand or while standing on only one foot. It will certainly make things more challenging and make winning the game more difficult!

Minion Treasure Hunt

Despicable Me Plush
There are several Despicable Me action figures and even talking plush toys. Just like a treasure or Easter hunt, hide the minions in the yard. Behind a bush, under a patio chair or even hidden in plain sight like among yellow roses. The one who collects the most minions gets a special prize.

On Your Mark, Get Set, Freeze!
In the movie, a freeze gun is used, which makes the victim unable to move, frozen in ice. You can use this same principal to play an active game. Just hand out water guns and have the kids “attack” each other, one-on-one. They will try to avoid getting shot by the water gun by ducking or moving to the side. But if they are hit, then they are frozen, just like in the movie! The next person in line would take their place to challenge the winner.

When you are planning the party, make sure you don’t forget about the supplies! There are invitations, napkins, plates, cups, banners, party hats and temporary tattoos. You can even decorate a cake using the Despicable Me theme.

No matter the ages of your guests, a Despicable Me party can be fun for everyone. Ideas on party activities for kids are endless and it just takes a little creativity or take a favorite and spin it into something new! You can complement these party activities with these Despicable Me 2 Party Games for Girls and Despicable Me 2 Party Games for Boys.

    We went to the pre-screening here in Vegas a couple weeks back and this boy has still not stopped talking about it! Buy me this, let’s make that, remember when Minion Dave said XXX…. Im totally using some of these!

      So glad he loved the movie! I bet it’s going to be one of those where he is going to want to watch it over and over again!

    I love the minion treasure hunt idea. We just saw the movie last week, and my kids LOVED it! I can’t remember the last time they laughed so hard at a movie! My son’s 4th birthday is coming up, and I anticipate that this will be the theme he will choose. :)

      My daughter is turning 4 in two weeks! She loves the minions, she says they are “cute.” LOL – If he chooses Despicable Me as a theme, let us know how he enjoys the activities!

    I would so love to take my great-niece to see this movie. She just loves the minions and uses all her rewards to go McDonalds for the toys. She has her 4th birthday in January and this would be such a great theme.

    Cute ideas. I actually came up with a game on my own a couple weeks ago called “Purple Minion/Yellow Minion”. It’s my version of that race game, “Red Light/Green Light”. I took two poster boards and drew a yellow minion saying “GO!” on the yellow poster board, and on a white poster board I drew a purple minion yelling “STOP!”. The first person to make it to the finish line wins a prize. Trying this out for my daughter’s birthday coming up in a couple weeks. :)
