Minion Selfie Station {photo booth}


A party just isn’t a party without great photos! {smiling} Providing photos ops which help the memories endure are always a top priority for me. A photo booth is always a must have at a party that I host as it doubles as a party game and DIY Decor.  It’s also a great way to cover a not so pretty spot in your home or a gym.

Selfie Stations or Photo Booths are also an easy activity for kids and adults of all ages. Here’s a Minion Selfie Station or photo booth idea that I created for our Blue and Gold Banquet for Cub Scouts which had a Minion theme.

Extra Large Minion Eyes

Materials Needed:

Extra Large Minion Goggles

How to Make:

1. Print the Eye Googles.

For the eyes I printed out these Free Printable Despicable Me 2 Minion Goggles and Mouths quite a bit larger than their original size.  At first, I printed them in black and white and on draft a couple times until I got the size that was proportional to the poster boards.   Then once I had the right size, I printed them out in full color on matte photo paper so there wouldn’t be a glare for pictures.

Since they were so large, it took 6 sheets of paper per Google.  I cut them out and taped them together on the back.  If any of the front seams where popping out I took a clear glue stick to adhesive down.

Tip:  I tried to get these printed at Office Max on poster paper but they wouldn’t do it since they are a trademarked character even though they were hand drawn and not a copy-written image.

2.  Print Photo Props

Print and cut out the Despicable Me photo props on matte photo paper.  Tape a wooden dowel or skewer to the back of each prop at an angle so they are easier to photograph.

Optional:  Stick the photo props in a vase or cover a rectangle of craft foam with paper so they are cute and won’t fall over or get ruined thrown on a table.

How to Play:

Since this is a selfie station, it requires little explanation or assistance.  I had my camera set up on a tripod.  However, so many people had their phones with them so it was easier than I had anticipated.  Everyone enjoyed the photo op!
