Drive In Movie Summer Fun

Break summer boredom by hosting a drive-in movie summer FUN!!!  We are definitely a family that likes to get up and go but sometimes kicking’ it at home and watching a movie can be fun especially when it involves DIY crafts and kiddos!  So, how do you do a drive-in movie at home?  Glad you asked…first we’re gonna need a car.  I grabbed some cardboard boxes from Staples, printed up some printables to attach to the boxes and let my kiddos go at it.  They had so much fun decorating their very own car to take to the drive in!

  1. Such a unique idea…love the cardboard box cars you made. Black and white with splashes of color really makes it look “movieish”. The lightbox marquee is the perfect finishing touch. well done.

  2. Love this idea! I am doing this for a library program…where did you find the fuel gauge printables??
