Chances are you've got an empty cardboard box around the house right now. With a few simple materials plus some imagination, you can turn it into your own kid-sized drive-in car.
- A cardboard box big enough for a child to sit in
- Paper (wrapping paper, Sunday comics, or any other colorful paper) to cover your box
- Decorations for the outside of your wrapped box. Use whatever you have on hand! Cut circle shapes for headlights, use a paper plate for a steering wheel, cut rectangles for license plates, embellish the sides with stickers, or draw your own designs - get creative! There's no wrong way to decorate your car.
For inspiration, check out this Flickr album from one of our past Baby Drive-In programs at the library.
When you're finished building your car, pull up to a screen, put on a favorite movie or show, settle in, and enjoy!
