I had my day all planned out. Head to Target to buy the Minions movie in Blu-ray (it got released today), then head home to do the laundry and work on the blog. It didn't happen! As always, the Target run to buy one item became a trip to Jerusalem. Can you blame me? I know I'm not the only one guilty of this, so we got home with more bags than I can carry.
I did promised the kids I'll put up a fun movie night though. So when we got home, I rushed to prepare a minions photo booth complete with printable minions and a minions balloon tower that you guys can also re-create for a minions movie night or a minions party. Check out my easy minions photo booth tutorial below.
FREE PRINTABLES: MINIONS PARTY BOOTH PROPS
Materials needed for a minions photo booth props:
- Print out FREE minions printables (below)
- Barbecue Stick
Materials needed for minions balloon tower:
- 11 yellow balloons
- 10 blue balloons
- balloon pump
- 1 free printable minion face
2. You need 4 balloons per layer. Tie 2 yellows together, then 2 blues together. Then cross the pair and tie/twist them together that the end product looks like picture "2" below.
3. Using the white string, tie it in the middle where the balloons are tied up. String length is dependent on how high you want the balloon tower to be. Put a balloon weight in the bottom if displaying outdoors (a small balloon filled with water will work).
4. Stack your balloon layers, pushing down the middle then spool the string so the layers of balloon can stay in place. This balloon tower has a swirl design, so just turn the layers so the yellow and blue can follow the swirl design.
5. Make/blow the last yellow balloon the biggest. Tie a string to the balloon separately then run it in the middle top all the way to the bottom to attach to the bottom layer of balloons. Tape a picture of one of our minion printables and that's it. The kids are ready to hug jumbo "Kevin".
The kids were ready for the movie right when big sis got home from school. They were not only excited to see the balloon tower I made, but also happy to see the Minions Blu-ray/DVD that I bought which came in a metal pack (a Target exclusive). You can get them in store or online. If you get the metal pack version, you get a $5 gift card with your purchase. And the Minions DVD includes 40 minutes of Target Exclusive content.
