We recently saw one of our friends post pictures of their kids outside in lawn chairs watching movies on a laptop. We thought this looked like such a fun idea that we took it a step further! We pulled our minivan into the back yard (are neighbors probably thought we were crazy!) Then we laid blankets & pillows down just like we would at a real drive-in. Of course we had to go to the dollar store and get some sugary snacks for the movie!
We picked out some great FREE movies from our local library and played them on our laptop! So for $2, the cost of candy, we were able to create our own drive-in at home and a life time of memories! We will definitely be doing this again! Oh and another added bonus… when you have to take potty breaks… you can pause the movie and don’t have to miss a thing!
Don’t have a laptop? Use a TV & VCR or DVD player. Some libraries have these available to rent also!
