Kids love to play games, especially silly ones, and pin-on games certainly qualify. Watching someone wearing a blindfold trying to find the perfect place to put a sticker can be pretty comical. Kids have a ball watching their friends take a turn, and they love trying to be the one who comes the closest. Get a game that features pinning something on Minnie, like her nose or mouth or bow; you can find all sorts of versions.
2. Minnie Crafting Station

Minnie loves to accessorize, and between her baking and bow-making, she’s also pretty crafty. Therefore, it makes perfect sense to set up an arts and crafts station at your child’s party. Kids can make jewelry, design bows, paint pictures of Minnie, and more. You can set up some DIY crafts or use a craft kit or jewelry making sets that lay everything out for you. The best part is, kids can take their creations home as special party souvenirs.
3. Minnie Mouse Piñata

A Minnie Mouse piñata is an excellent way to add an extra activity to your party and it’s easy to match your theme. Simply choose a piñata that has something to do with Minnie Mouse, fill it with goodies, and let kids go at it. They can swing a stick or pull a string; you decide what option works best for your party situation. For example, if you need to use the piñata indoors or a small space, a pull-string is the way to go. But if you’re outside and it’s older kids, hitting it can be lots of fun.
4. Minnie Mouse Bingo

If you’re looking for a fun but low-key party game, print out some bingo cards like these Minnie ones from Spoonful of Sparkles. Playing Bingo is easy, and when you use picture cards, even young kids can play. This activity is a great option if you need something a little calmer before you round up everyone for cake, or following a more intense, active game, etc. It’s always nice to have a mix of activities in your back pocket so you can choose which type is best based on how the party is going.
5. Decorate Minnie Cookies

One of Minnie’s skills is baking and decorating cookies. The Chickabug Blog shows how you can add this feature to your party with a cookie-decorating station. Prebake some Minnie shaped sugar cookies, and lay out an assortment of colored frostings, sprinkles, and other fun toppings. Set up a table with a colorful tablecloth and give each child a cookie on a plate. If you have a lot of kids, it might be easier to make some decorating kits for each one, so they don’t have to reach across the table or move around a lot.

Magnificent Minnie Mouse Birthday Cake Ideas
The showstopper of a birthday party is often the cake, taking center stage on a main table and prompting lots of photos. It’s also a place where you can go really big or keep things simple, depending on your style and budget. If you’re creative and have some baking skills, you might opt to make the cake yourself. Otherwise, you might prefer to order a custom creation or buy a Minnie Mouse cake from a local bakery.

Party Favors For A Minnie Mouse Birthday
Set up a table near your party exit with special gifts for your guests. Party favors are a nice gesture that let your guests know how thankful you are for them celebrating with you. Whether you DIY treats, buy small toys, or order custom cookies, favors let you show your appreciation. If you’re not sure what to get your guests for a Minnie Mouse birthday, check out these ideas for some inspiration.

The set of straws includes 24 straws, featuring six different characters. It’s Minnie along with her best friends, Mickey, Daisy, Donald, Goofy, and Pluto. The bright blue, yellow, red, orange, pink, and purple create a vivid pop to your party scheme. Put them in goody bags or add them to party drinks to make kids smile.
Cups are another popular party favor because they work as-is, or you can fill them with candy, stickers, and other trinkets. You can also serve guests their drinks in the cups, and simply let them know they get to take their cup home. Add the cup to the wacky straws above for an extra special favor. The set comes with six 16-ounce cups, each with its own lid and straw.
Is it possible to have a Minnie Mouse party without having some sort of Minnie Mouse ears? Probably, but it wouldn’t be as fun. You can have guests make their own at a craft station.

The pack comes with 10 sets, each with a coloring book, two mini crayons, and a sticker.
Frequently Asked Questions (F.A.Q.)
What are some good colors for a Minnie Mouse birthday party?
The most common colors for a Minnie Mouse party are pink, white, and gold or pink and white. You’ll also still find a lot of parties that feature classic Minnie, using black and red with white polka-dots. Typically, your color scheme depends on what version of Minnie Mouse you choose to highlight at your child’s party. The primary difference lies in which dress your daughter’s favorite Minnie Mouse wears.
Does Minnie Mouse go to kids’ parties?
If you want to have a character come to your kid’s party, there are many party entertainment companies eager to oblige. Look for local companies and call several months before you plan to have your event so you can ensure you get the booking when you want it. Characters mingle, take photos, run various activities, help serve the cake, etc. It depends on the particular character and company, so ask them what services they provide.
Keep in mind, due to copyright issues you’re not going to find a company with a Minnie Mouse. Instead, you might find someone offering a visit from “Girl Mouse,” “Mouse Friend,” or similar adjustments.
What ages are best for a Minnie Mouse birthday?
You’ll see Minnie Mouse parties frequently for babies and younger children. However, even older girls still love Minnie. The difference is in how you decorate and style the party. For example, if your nine year old loves Minnie, she might opt for a more subtle Minnie Mouse theme, using polka-dot patterns, the Minnie colors of her choice and a few ear and bow silhouettes. The good news is, if your child’s older, they can tell you what they want their theme to be.
