DIY Drive in!

It's another wet ground, potential to rain (heavy...again) kind of day, With a 3 year old Lumpy to entertain.  I remembered seeing "Drive in" movie ideas and went hunting for supplies!

What you need
1 box (strong enough to support toddler sitting in it),
some paper to cover box (optional),
paper/plastic plates for wheels,
colouring pencils/felts.

Adding some finishing touches

Getting a little impatient for it to dry on the other side!
Finished! parked in prime position!

Making this an even cheaper/budget friendly activity - home made air popped pop corn (diluted juice) and Madagascar movie hired free from the library!
