My kids (and I) all love the movie Inside Out. It just came out on DVD and Blu-Ray (and digital which I recommend so they can watch it on their tablets), and my kids have watched it almost everyday! It is a great movie that will make you laugh, smile and cry but it also has a lot of great lessons, like what feelings do what, and why kids act the way they do sometimes. While we were at Target picking up our copy of Disney-Pixar’s Inside Side out for a fun movie night, we also grabbed a few craft supplies. We loved the emotions in the film – Joy, Sadness, Disgust, Fear and Anger. The emotions and their colors have really left a mark on kids (not just mine) in helping them express themselves.
We have watched the movie several times over the last couple of weeks, and I am sure that we will watch it dozens more. It is a fun way to spend time with my kids and have a movie night that makes fun memories. There are a lot of fun food ideas, you can make colored popcorn or rice krispies, or many other things. Because they wanted to do an Inside Out craft, we found these really cute printables of each Inside Out Character – Joy, Sadness, Anger, Fear and Disgust and used them in the project. We printed them, and along with the construction paper, ribbon, and clips we were able to make a really fun Inside Out Mobile. They love playing with each Inside Out character, especially while they watch the movie.
First of all you will want to print out at least one of each of the Inside Out Character emotions below. Once they are printed, you will cut them out (I left a small white border around each one for speed sake) and then you will use glue stick to attach them to a paper of the color of their emotion. Then I cut out around that as well leave about 1/2-1 inch of the colored paper around the character. Once you have them done, you will use the paper clips, and tie about 12-18 inches of ribbon of each of the different colors onto 5 different clips.
You will then attach the ribbons to the Banner (an Inside Out character on one side and the logo on the other) then you will poke 5 holes into it and secure the ribbon. Once it is all ready, clip the emotions – 1 each into the 5 clips you attached to the bottom of the ribbon. It was really fun to do and easy to put together. My kids loved it and make their own while I made this one. They all turned out great and it was a fun afternoon project that your kids will love!
You can use a printable Inside Out character for so many different things. You can also make memory balls (and print little picture circles and put them inside). Cut out circles of paper with pictures cut in circles inside, and hang them with the emotions. I would love to know what you do with this and how you can make it your own.
Here are the printables for each Inside Out Character. I printed them in a 3×5 setting – so that is why they are turned that way. Right click, save the picture, then open the picture and select print – choose 3×5 – and I printed 2 of each one so my kids could also have some to play with and make their own.
This was a lot of fun and my kids loved making it before we watched the movie. I would love for you to share your your ideas with me.
