Make Family Movie Night a Drive In

Not Just a Housewife

Do you do family movie night? We started one in our household a year or two ago. It's a great opportunity to pop some popcorn, snuggle on the couch, and share some classics with your kids. (Our personal favorite has been The Cat From Outer Space, circa 1978.) Make it even more special with these ingenious "cars" so your movie can be a drive in.Stacey from Not Just a Housewife came up with this idea when she acquired a projector to show movies, but it works just as well if you are simply watching them on your TV. We often have dinner in front of the movie (it's a special treat!), so the cars would provide the perfect contained area to prevent spills on the carpet or floor. You could make them as a surprise or get the kids involved in building them. Either way, it'll make the movie that much more interesting. Cars, anyone?
