END OF SCHOOL DRIVE-IN MOVIE PARTY Hot
Summer is just around the corner, and your resident children will be finishing up school in just a few short weeks. Why not kick off the summer by rewarding your littlest residents for their year-long hard work with a Drive-in Movie Party?
This party puts a fun spin on the classic drive-in movie and combines three of the things youngsters love the most - movies, treats and cardboard boxes! The outdoor screen and projector you will need to pull off this Drive-in Movie Party are a teeny bit on the spendy side; however, you will be able to use them to entertain your residents at events for many years to come. Amazon has a 12 foot inflatable movie screen for only $149.98, and there are a variety of projectors and speakers to choose from. Simply set the screen up outside, hook up the projector and speakers, and you have an instant outdoor theater!
You should notify your residents of the Drive-in Movie event a couple of weeks in advance, that way parents have time to help their kids build and decorate their cardboard box cars. We found this absolutely great resource for instructions on building your own drive-in movie cars! Pinterest has a lot of helpful cardboard box car designs and ideas.
You can make this a BYOT (bring your own treat) party, or you can choose to give out classic movie treats like mini bags of buttery popcorn and a variety of scrumptious candies. Because some residents will likely be bringing blankets to sit on during the movie, make sure that the sprinklers are turned off for a couple of days so the grass is nice and dry. Your residents are sure to enjoy the nostalgic trip down drive-in movie memory lane as they settle in to watch a movie with their loved ones under the stars.
