Kids Sleepover Movie Night

Looking to make your child’s friends sleepover a fun party?  Consider an old-fashioned drive-in movie party right in your living room.

Create the Cars

Get some roomy cardboard boxes and create cool custom vehicles.  Draw details with markers and use glue dots to secure plastic-plate wheels and jar-lid headlights.  Toss in a comfortable pillow for the seat and you have your custom car created.

Drive-in Snack Trays

Take a shoe-box, cut a slit and bend it in for the drink holder, then attach to your custom car with large binder clips.  These cute snack trays keep edibles (such as popcorn, chips, etc.) close at hand.  You can prevent the drink from toppling over by cutting a 2 1/2-inch long slit at a corner of the box and folding it inward as shown.



Serve a Meal on Wheels

For a creative fun, no-fuss dinner, bake up a fleet of drive-in dogs.  Roll hot dogs in a 4-inch square of pizza dough (try Pillsbury Classic Pizza Crust) and place them seam-down on an oiled baking sheet.  Press halved black olives into the sides for wheels.   Bake the dogs according to the dough package’s instructions until the crust is golden brown.   Using toothpicks, attach halved sweet gherkins for people, then add faces with a toothpick dipped in mustard.  cut a small slit in front of each car’s passengers, insert a pickle-steering wheel, and they are ready to roll.




Show either a double feature, or rent a disc of classic cartoons to screen before the  main event.  At intermission, invite the moviegoers in to visit a kitchen concession stand stocked with popcorn and a few favorite treats.
