Rachel loves the new movie, Inside Out. We decided to center our craft around the movie today. Her favorite character is Disgust, but she wanted to make one of each of the emotions. The boys got just as involved and created their own versions of the emotions as well.
I started by putting purple, red, yellow, green, and blue paint on its own paper plate.
Each kid got five small paper plates. (You could use regular size plates, but I found the small ones worked really well for them.) We passed the paint plates around to each kid and they painted their five plates, one of each color.
After the paint was dry, we glued on google eyes. Then we drew on faces for each of the emotions with black Sharpie. For finishing touches, we added a black pipe cleaner for Sadness's eyes, crafting fur for Fear's eyebrows, and tissue paper for hair and fire. It is hard to see in the picture, but we added green glitter glue for Disgust's eyelashes.
Matt decided he didn't want to put the hair on his, so here are his emotions with just the drawn faces. They both turned out really well. He wrote the emotions on his as well.
