The boys and I went with some friends of ours to see the movie Inside Out. I loved it. Everything about it. In fact, my friend Rachel can attest to the fact that I got a little (or a lot) choked up towards the end. Remember when Andy leaves for college in Toy Story 3 and his mom flashes back to when he was little playing with Woody and Buzz? Yeah, it was kinda like that…preciousness pulling on your sentimental mom heartstrings at its finest.
If you haven’t seen Inside Out, I would highly recommend it! My boys enjoyed the movie (who doesn’t love going to the movies?!?!), although I don’t think they really “got” some parts of it like adults, teens or even tweens would who know the parts/functions of the brain. My bloggy friend Amanda has an awesome review/discussion guide that you need to check out and I totally agree with pretty much all parts of her review of the film.
Given Little Brother’s current fascination with Perler Beads and my adoration of the movie Inside Out, I figured it would be fun to make some Inside Out Perler Bead Patterns!
Here’s what you’ll need:
Just a word of warning, the template isn’t fancy but it should get the job done. I basically photocopied one of our clear Perler Bead templates, created a color-coded template for each character, and then scanned all the pages.
Gather your perler beads and get started! Slide the printable patterns underneath the transparent pegboard and start placing your beads on the pegboard according to the pattern.
Follow the directions on the perler bead package to iron.
Joy (this is my least favorite of all of our creations as she kind of looks like a clown…but we did the best we could) :)
