Family Drive-In Movie Night

Do you have family movie nights? One of my favorite pastimes is watching movies with my family.  There is nothing quite like the experience we all have watching something together.  Of course, movie night is not just about the movie in our home!  I am a teacher so you know I am going to turn it into a learning opportunity if I can.  If not, I am definitely going to try to do something fun to connect my kids to the movie.

If you’ve ever been to a drive-in movie, you know how much fun it can be; from piling in the car with your cozy blankets to enjoying your favorite snacks in the Summer air! And if you have ever given a kid an empty cardboard box – you know how much fun they can have, as they use their creativity and let their imagination runs wild for hours!

To celebrate  Week 7 of  Camp Warner Bros., we brought the drive-in experience right to our living room!  Not only was it a fun movie experience for the kids, but it was also an easy and inexpensive DIY craft! All we needed was a cardboard box and some great looking decals to add to our car.   You can download the decals for your car here.


The look on the kid’s faces when we brought this car out that my husband created was PRICELESS!  They were totally digging it and if I am being honest, I was super impressed with what my husband did in just a short amount of time.  While it might not look like much, he did n=more than just add the decals to the car, he cut out doors for the kids.  

Now that we have introduced them to the world of drive-ins, my husband and I are working on creating four boxes for all of us to sit in and enjoy around Labor Day.  I can’t wait to share those pictures with you on Instagram and our other social media accounts.  It will definitely be a night to remember. 

If you are looking for an easy and inexpensive way to entertain the kids, consider this activity!  You won’t regret it.  The only thing you may regret is not thinking of it sooner!





If you’re not able to create a drive-in movie car, no worries!  Grab the family so you can all sit back, relax, and get nostalgic while watching America’s favorite cat and mouse duo as they race around the world in Tom & Jerry Movie: The Fast & The Furry!  Chances are you grew up watching this dup and today is a chance for you to share that with your kids.


Tom & Jerry Movie: The Fast & The Furry

Tom and Jerry enter an extreme car race competition called the “Super Race” in order to win the grand prize of a beautiful, dream mansion! Driving suped-up hot rods that can adapt to any environment (land, sea or air), they compete in this wild race around the world, encountering famous landmarks along the way and leaving chaos in their wake.
