When planning a Minion party, it's hard not to include a few of the Evil Minions from Despicable Me 2. They are the perfect target for a Knock down the Can game. Your guests can pretend to be Gru and shoot the Evil Minions with your own Jelly Gun or knock them down with a small ball.
Start by printing out the PDF zip file of the Evil Minions. There are 10 minions with 2 to a page. They are designed to fit around Campbell's soup cans, but can be used around vegetable cans too.
Use your handy, dandy awesome Fiskars Paper Trimmer to trim around the outside of each minion. The trimmer makes it so quick and easy to cut out these printables that I highly recommend one.
Enjoy a few meals of Campbell's tomato or chicken noodle soup this week and save the cans. Clean them out and remove the outer wrappers. Replace the label with the Evil Minion printable using a little bit of hot glue on the back inside of each minion printable.
To play the game, stack the Evil Minion cans into a pyramid tower. We found using the Hog Wild Original Power Popper was a fun way to shoot at the minions to replicate the movie, but you can use a regular ball or bean bag if you'd rather.
You can also set up the Minion cans as bowling pins. Let your guests knock down the Minions by rolling the ball and seeing how many they can clear away.
Whichever way you play, you can have a lot of fun at your Minion party using these Evil Minion can game printables. Be sure you go get your free prints here now.
