Monsters, Inc. – Closet Decorating
Sulley – Mike, this isn’t Boo’s door.
Mike – Boo? What’s Boo?
Sulley – That’s… what I decided to call her. Is there a problem?
Mike – Sulley, you’re not supposed to name it. Once you name it you start getting attached to it. Now put that thing back where it came from or so help me…
The first time I saw Disney/Pixar’s Monster’s, Inc. it was for a GPA activity in Junior High. At the very end of the movie when Sulley says, “Boo?” and Boo says, “Kitty!” I distinctly remember every girl in the room saying, “AWWW!” I may or may not have been one of them. I may have even shed a small tear.
I showed this movie to my girls last week. They loved Boo. She’s just so relatable to them right now. I didn’t want them to be scared of monsters coming into their room. I told my kids, “If you are afraid that monsters might come into your room remember that Sulley runs the factory now. So if the monsters came they would tell jokes and make you laugh. Wouldn’t that be fun?” My kids both decided it would be. They even wanted the monsters to visit.
So, we decided to make their door stand out from the pack. That way they could get a better shot at having a monster come to visit.
Monster’s, Inc. Closet Decorating
- Foam Stickers
How to Play
- Give the kids the stickers and let them go to town decorating their closet. That’s it!
You can leave them alone while you get some work done.
Your kids will probably even want you to leave so they can surprise you with their finished door. (So, don’t feel any guilt as you fold a load of laundry.)
Having so much fun!
The end result. The monsters wouldn’t miss their door now! And don’t you love how methodically they decorated that door?
Look at the detail. My kids even layered the stickers!
And, with a toddler, the activity usually ends like this.
If you want to really have some fun with this, you could dress up as a monster the night they decorate their door and tell them jokes. Your kids would never forget it!
