My family had the opportunity to see a screening of Inside Out before it was in theaters and I knew I needed to own it. I loved everything about it and found myself laughing and crying throughout the movie and left with a better understanding of some of the emotions my own children go through.
I was so excited to see that it is now out on DVD, so I picked one up at Walmart the last time I was there. If there is one animated film that you should purchase this holiday season, this is it! I found it on the end of one of one of the children’s movies displays.
I love that Inside Out discusses the different feelings that we all have inside of us, so I made up a fun Emotions Charades Game to help my boys express the types of emotions they would feel in different situations.
Print out this Emotions Charades and cut the different scenarios into strips. Have children choose one strip of paper to act out for the rest of the family. Once the family members guess what it is, talk to each child about how they would feel in that situation. Print out your own copy here: Emotions Charades Game
One of the great things about this game is that not all children (or adults) will experience the same emotions in the circumstances they act out. Some children would feel joy going on a rollercoaster while others would express fear.
We also purchased Inside Out TOMY toys from Walmart that can be used for younger kids who can’t act out the charades game. Read the scenario to them and let them choose which character from Inside Out shows how they would feel. This was really fun for my youngest, even though he doesn’t look very angry here.
Be sure to pick up your copy of Inside Out at Walmart today! And let me know how your kids enjoy the movie and the game.
