Drive-In Movie

Looking for something fun to do with your kids this weekend? Just go to a drive-in movie…in your living room! First, you’ll need a large box. Then, decorate it to look like a car (you can paint the box, but I chose a less-messy route…I wrapped it in paper, then we colored on it with crayons). Attach wheels, mirrors, a steering wheel, and a personalized license plate.

To make a working steering wheel, I attached it with a large brad to one bump of an egg carton, then glued the egg carton to the box.

To make it extra special, let your kids choose a new movie to watch (I like Redbox, or the Netflix Instant play options) You can even make admission tickets if you want to add to the atmosphere.

Pop up some popcorn, grab a juice box, and enjoy!
