Minion birthday party!!

My Pilates instructor asked me to help with her daughter's birthday party.
Julia chose a Minion/Survivor party.  She wanted a craft  for the party invitees to make and decorations for the party.
So, I immediately went on Pinterest and found some great ideas.
I went to Seshalyn's website and was able to download her printouts.
I made the banner and stamped out Julia's name on one of the signs.

Another sign I found on Pinterest, Rebekah Lewis' website that I am having the mom put on the front door is this one.  I thought it was a cute sign to have for the guests to welcome them. Who wants one to hang outside their cubicle or office?

I also printed some more minion images to make a bookmark that they will create. They will use the Tag Topper punch, stamp out their name in Night of Navy ink, ink the edges, attach a minion they punch out either next to their name or on the other side and attach some ribbon to the top.
Here is the party set up.  Starting on the left, going counter-clockwise, journal decorating, Minion tattoos, personalized bookmark making.
Here is the banner up.
For the Survivor part, I brought an obstacle course set I bought years ago on the Clearance Rack at Target, and I have used it many times.  It has hurdles, cones, and frisbees to set up your very own obstacle course.  

I also brought 2 pails and 2 car wash sponges for a wet relay.  The sponges look like this:

You put one tub of water on one end of the yard, and the 2 pails at the other end.  Place the sponges in the water and split the children into 2 teams.  These are stock pictures, I didn't take pictures of the game.

One person from each team takes the water soaked sponge to the pail at the other end of the yard and squeezes it into the pail. Then, they run back to the tub of water and passes the sponge to the next person in line.  The team who has the most water in their  pail WINS!!!
Anyone need a party planned?  Thank you for checking in!
