Have you had a chance to see the new Inside Out movie yet? Disney teamed up with Pixar to produce another fantastic story. We were lucky to see it a few weeks ago as a family and it is a lot of fun. My kids thought the characters were all very silly. Be prepared with Kleenex though, it is a bit of a tear jerker. You will certainly feel some emotion! Speaking of emotions, the Inside Out Movie is all about feeling emotions. Fear, Disgust, Anger, Sadness and Joy are the main characters. Who is your favorite?
Joy would be happy to know that I have a fun Inside Out Party Game to share with all of you. This game is kind of like "Truth or Dare?" but with a Disney twist! Players will get to know each other from the inside out before it is over. It is easy to play and suitable for all ages. In fact, it's so easy, you can even print it out and play it in the car on your way to the Happiest Place on Earth!
To start, download the playing cards below. You want to print the cards double-sided. Print out the front first, then put the front page back through the printer to print out the back. You can use a thicker paper, or can laminate your cards when they're done to make them more durable.
Cut the cards out. Lay them out on the table with each character in a separate stack.
You will need a few bags of Skittles. Buy a combination of the Original and the Wild Berry flavors, so you have a Skittle to match each emotion's coordinating color.
To play, have the players take turns picking a Skittle from the bowl. Make sure their eyes are closed so they can't see the colors. The Skittle color designates what card that player draws from the table. For instance, if they choose a red Skittle, then the player draws a red Anger card.
Have the player do the action outlined on the card. They are all unique and have something to do with the emotion character on the card. For example, the Joy cards have fun and silly things on the back and the Fear cards have spooky or scary actions and questions on them. All of the cards are silly and fun! After the player has finished his or her turn, they get to eat the Skittle and place the completed card in their own personal stack.
The play ends when all of the cards have been drawn. For a fast version, you can end the game when one player collects all five Emotion Cards, or has five of the same Emotion Cards in his or her completed pile.
There are some pink Skittles in the batch that are used as a WILD. If the player draws a pink Skittle, they get to choose any emotion card that they want for that turn. I hope you have a Joyful time playing this Inside Out Party Game!
