Drive-in movie night was a success or thumbs-up according to our little man Brooks. We wanted to do something different this weekend and since the kids love movies, candy, and popcorn… Well it was a no brainer. We literally used things we had around the house besides the purchase of the $2 boxes.
My husband and I stayed up until midnight painting and gluing these babies to turn them into their own personal cars (your kids could also decorate the cars… we just came up with the idea at the last minute). My daughter’s car was painted white with pink flowers on the sides (perfect considering since she was born she has loved flowers or at least that’s what I tell myself in order to buy them 😉 ). I glued eyelashes to the eyes of the car using bendable art sticks.
Brook’s car was more of a race car that his dad painted. He used paint tape to paint the stripes perfectly down the middle. He randomly found mirrors in the garage to attach to the car (lucky son of a gun).
We had them snack boxes attached to the side by clips that consisted of popcorn, a drink, candy, a handmade paper Dory fish attached to a stick, glow in the dark bracelets, and Finding Dory stickers. I decided to make some jellyfish decor to bring in the ocean theme of the movie out of lanterns and streamer.
We were so giddy all day waiting on the kids to wake up from their afternoon nap to see their reactions! They loved it!!
So needless to say… There will be a lot of movies watched in these Ole cardboard boxes
Directions I found for the DIY cardboard car.
