Guys, have you seen Inside Out? Isn’t it AMAZING? Kids love it but adults really love it. When I first saw it I think there was more adults smiling in the crowd than kids. I was one of them.
If you haven’t seen Inside Out, it’s a 3D animated film made by the always amazing Pixar. The film is set in the mind of a young girl, Riley. Throughout her life there are 5 emotions that try to help her out in life problems, especially when moving to a new city. The emotions are Joy, Sadness, Fear, Anger and Disgust. I’m not going to tell you more because you have to watch it.
Because I was excited for the film to come out and I had many friends (and Matthew!) who haven’t seen it I decided to throw a rainbow filled party to celebrate the release and get everyone to think about their feelings. No, don’t worry, we’re not getting psychological deep here where we’re going to sit around and talk about our darkest hours, but instead it’s a time to celebrate joy but also totally be ok with sadness and fear too.
Throwing a Inside Out party is pretty easy because it’s all about color. For not much money you can have a entire party zone set up. You want to keep in the colors of Yellow, Blue, Red, Green and Purple.
Things you’ll need:
Inside Out DVD (to have a viewing party or to play throughout the entire party)
Inside Out Toys
Crafts section – colorful markers and paper
Tablecloths – to be used on tables and walls
Napkins, Plates, Cups
Food! Have a good selection of vegetables, hand food, sweets (cake, candy, cupcakes, popcorn balls (see below)), and then something easy like pizza or sandwiches.
Here are the toys that you can find at Walmart. They’re made by Tomy Toys.
For the table, I hung up 5 plastic table cloths that were long enough to cover the table and the wall. I added balloons on the wall and around the table in general. I also threw balloons all over our loft and in the ceiling. The wrinkles in the table cloths are hard to get out admittingly and I’m a bit of a perfectionist so it was frustrating but then I got the anger feeling out and started to feel joy!
For crafts the main focus was on a cup called “C’MON THANKS POSITIVE!”. There you had bright colored paper and markers and you had to write something good about yourself. Sometimes in life we don’t stop and think about the good that we do so stop a minute and give yourself a high 5.
