Minions, what fantastically fun creatures. They’re cheeky, loveable and funny. We recently saw the new minions movie, now everything is minion themed, so what better way to extend the fun than to make a game.
This game was so easy to make, we painted some thermo (polystyrene cups) yellow and blue using acrylic paint.
We added some eyes by cutting circles out of white foam, gluing them onto the cups and adding the black dots and goggle straps with permanent markers.
We stacked the cups up and got shooting with some water pistols.
It was a good challenge to see who could knock the minions down the quickest. Pinky was quite determined.
I recommend you don’t play this when it’s windy as the cups will blow away, but, it’s a fab game on a calm summers day.
Everyone had fun making their minions cups and playing the game. It got quite competitive in the end.
After we’d had enough of the water pistols, Boo turned it into skittles. She lined the cups up like skittles and bowled them down.
There are lots of different things you could do with this game to extend the fun.
