Inside Out gave us all the feels …
Disgust: That broccoli pizza did look pretty gross.
Sadness: That our little ones won’t be babies forever.
Joy: That we get to watch them blossom into caring adults. (Oh, and everything about Rainbow Unicorn.)
Anger: That the movie had to come to an end.
It has captured our hearts, and our (good) tears. To extend the movie experience into your home, here are 16 fun crafts, activities, and recipes that will bring you nothing but joy.
