BA-BA-BA-BANANA SNACKSWe all know Minions are obsessed with bananas - why not dress a bunch up as the mischievous yellow creatures for a fun snack time treat. You can use these printable Minion designs, or improvise with pens and paper.
BA-BA-BA-BANANA HUNTYou could also hide your Minion-ified bananas around the house and garden for a fun (and healthier) twist on an Easter Egg Hunt - just remember to keep a note of where they all are to avoid a sticky banana mess if any get missed…
For a less-healthy prize, turn them into banana splits.
THROW YOUR OWN MINION-FESTThose Minions sure know a good song when they hear it - not only have they got a few of their own, the soundtrack to each of the Despicable Me films is chock full of hits; just check out the festival-themed poster for Rise of Gru. So why not throw yourselves a Minion-Fest: get your best festival outfits on, deck the garden with yellow and blue bunting and pop a tent up before dancing the afternoon away and lip syncing with the whole family.
If you don’t have a garden, you can easily recreate this in the park or your living room.
PIN THE GOGGLES ON THE MINIONGet crafty by creating your own eye-less Minion or use this handy printable version to create a yellow and blue twist on pin the tail on the donkey. Pin your Minion to a wall or a tree, blindfold the players, spin them around three times and giggle as they get those goggles in very wrong places.
LEARN HOW TO SPEAK MINIONThis adorable YouTuber has put together a handy video to teach you some of the basics of Minion-ese. Spend some time together learning a few words - thank you, goodbye etc - then challenge each other to only say those things in Minion for the rest of the day. Anyone who forgets has to do a forfeit. You might find yourself requesting a lot of bananas...
MAKE SOME MINION SLIMEKids love slime. It’s just a fact of life. Did you know you can make your own? Here’s a handy tutorial with a decidedly Minion-esque twist. Once you’ve made the slime, then you can send the kids off to play with it which should buy you a few minutes of peace and quiet!
