I am SO excited that Monsters University is finally out in theaters! Both Mike and I are movie buffs and the first movie we ever took Sam to was the re-release of Monsters Inc. in 3D last December. Neither of us had seen it before and, together with Sam, we all fell in love.
Since then, we have been an anxiously anticipated release of Monsters University. I'm a huge fan of Billy Crystal (if you love him too, you should listen to this interview I recently heard him do with Jian Ghomeshi on Q), so it's exciting to enjoy his character again!
Ever since college-bound Mike Wazowski (voice of Billy Crystal) was a little monster, he has dreamed of becoming a Scarer—and he knows better than anyone that the best Scarers come from Monsters University (MU). But during his first semester at MU, Mike’s plans are derailed when he crosses paths with hotshot James P. Sullivan, “Sulley” (voice of John Goodman), a natural-born Scarer. The pair’s out-of-control competitive spirit gets them both kicked out of the University’s elite Scare Program. To make matters worse, they realize they will have to work together, along with an odd bunch of misfit monsters, if they ever hope to make things right.
Has your family watched the movie yet? We are going this week! Before we go, Sam is enjoying these fun Monsters University coloring projects, which are FREE to download! (We're doing the memory cards tomorrow.) Click the links below to download and print.
Wouldn't they also make great activities for a monster-themed party?

Stephanie is in love with a boy named Sam. He has taught her that it's okay to jump first and look later, to wear a dirty shirt to the park and to decide that today is a good day to take a nap in your rubber boots. She hangs out here blogging at Spaceships and Laser Beams and at our printable party shop on Etsy.
