My daughter loves the movie ‘Inside Out’. She is particularly fond of Joy. Joy is her favorite character. She pretends to be her all of the time. Yesterday, she was asked what her name is. She told the person that her name was Joy. I just laughed. She gets so into character, that she even refuses to wear shoes because Joy does not wear shoes. I promised my little Joy that we would make an ‘Inside Out’ craft. We decided to make a hand print craft. I wanted to make an emotion character on each of Mai’s fingers & Riley on her palm.
We painted her palm in flesh tone. I painted each of her fingers in the character’s colors. For Anger, we painted the thumb in white & the tip in red. We painted the pointer finger light green & then the tip flesh toned for Joy. The middle finger was purple with a light purple tip for Fear. Disgust was green with a light green tip on her ring finger. Sadness finished off the cast of characters on the pinky. She was a very light blue with a slightly darker blue on the tip. We pressed it onto a piece of paper & let it dry.
I painted the hair on each character.
I painted in the eyes & mouths on each & added in the clothing accessories.
On the palm, I painted in the whites of the eyes & added the hair for Riley with magic marker & crayons.
I finished of our craft by adding the rest of Riley’s facial features.
Mai thought this was hilarious & wanted to make one of her own too.
