I love a spin-off of the ‘pin the tail on the donkey’ party game.  It’s an easy game to play for all age groups and it doubles as adorable DIY Party Decor.  {snicker}  Here’s a Pin the Goggles on the Minion game that I created for our Blue and Gold Banquet for Cub Scouts which had a Minion theme.

How to Make:

1.  Cut The Body

Minions, have different shaped bodies so don’t feel like you have to do what I did.  Really anything goes.  Because I was short on time, I created 2 Minions the same size, tall and thin.  Therefore, I cut about 4 inches off one side of both the yellow poster boards.  I just eyeballed it when I decided how skinny I wanted it to  be.

2.  Cut the Head

To create a symmetrical curved head, I took another poster board and cut it the width of the Minion body. Then I folded it in half and cut it in a curve. {as seen above}

You don’t have to use a poster board, any paper will work as long as it’s the same width of the Minion body.  I cut the curve a couple times until I was happy with the shape.

Once you have the template for the top of the head created. Use it to trace and cut out both of the heads on the bodies.

This is what it will end up looking like.

3.  Print Out the Eyes

For the eyes I printed out these Free Printable Despicable Me 2 Minion Goggles and Mouths and cut them out.  To make the band for the Goggles, I cut black construction paper in thick horizontal strips and glued them on.

Print and cut out as many eyes as you’ll need for all the guests at your party.  Make sure you prepare a few extra’s just in case. {wink}  I put pop dots on the back of each eye as adhesive for when the kids played the game.

4.  Make the Hair

To create their crazy hair, I cut long thin black strips out of black construction paper.  I only glued one end of the hair so it had a 3D effect which created movement.

4.  Create the Mouth

You can do whatever your heart desires with their cute little mouths.  Since I was short on time, I kept things simple.  I cut their mouths out of regular paper first to create a template. Just like I did for the top of their heads.  Then once I was happy with the shape I traced it onto black card-stock.  I repeated the process for their teeth keeping it easy with little uneven scallops.

How to Play:

Play the Pin the Goggles on the Minion game any way you want. You can play this fun game individually or in teams. Blindfolded or not. Whatever works best for your party guests.

Since we played this game for the Blue and Gold banquet, we used a Scouting handkerchief as the blindfold.  So cute!
