Oh, the good old days. It makes me sad that drive-in movies are not around anymore (at least not in Utah County). Relive the fun and excitement of the past by celebrating National Drive-In Movie Day tomorrow, June 6th! Whether you’ve got the equipment and warmth where you live to host one outside or just want to have a fun night inside for the kids, I’ve rounded up some really fun ideas from other bloggers to share with you!
I can’t get over how stinkin’ cute these cardboard box cars are! Find an fruit orchard or grocer in your area that will let you buy a few apple boxes from them and let your children go to town decorating their own cars!
Box Car Details I love:
– Paper plate wheels
– Personalized Plates
For full details on this party – including lots of tips for the outdoor aspect of the equipment – read here.
– “Side Car” to hold concessions in
– Stickers to decorate – purchase files for only $5 here.

You can’t have a drive-in movie without concessions – popcorn, drinks, candy – the works! Here are a few ideas from others that I thought were super creative!
Concessions Details I love:
– Take this idea from Homemaking Fun and hand out paper money (that perhaps they earn doing chores that week) and price everything $1. I love that she used the fun size candy bars so you don’t feel like you or your kids are getting too much candy.
– Labeling everything makes it more fun and helps it feel like a party. Here is a link to the free printables shown above!
It doesn’t have to be anything fancy, and you don’t even need an actual drive-in movie theater to celebrate this fun day with your family and friends!
