My biggest priority in life is to raise our kids to be the kinds of kids that we want to hang out with as adults. That can only happen by spending time with them… teaching them, guiding them, talking to them. In order to make that happen, we plan fun things to do at home, as a family. We try to think of things that the kids can get involved in and things that let us spend time together. Today, I’m happy to partner with JOLLY TIME for this sponsored post.
Yesterday was the perfect day to host our own “drive-in movie.” The kids helped Mickey make cars out of boxes that we had in the garage. To make it, you just cut your box the way that you want it (or you don’t have to cut it at all- we let the kids pick their designs). Then you take a paper plate and clip it to the box for a steering wheel. Clip more on for the wheels.
HINT: tape the clips down on inside so the clips won’t scratch their skin.
We then took our boxes out onto the screened-in porch, put on a movie and made a box of JOLLY TIME’s new Simply Popped popcorn. Well… let me rephrase that. I made THREE boxes. Hahaha! I made this entire box:
I would be lying if I didn’t say that they asked for more. Yes, they wanted more (so did I… shh…) 🙂
Luckily, I didn’t mind because they had already eaten their dinner and JOLLY TIME Pop Corn’s new Simply Popped is made with just four ingredients (butter, sea salt, non-GMO popcorn and oil), so I let them have more. I like that it has ingredients that I can pronounce, soI feel good giving it to the kids and eating it myself.
We gave each of the kids their own bowl, while Mickey and I shared one…
And then we went back for more:
Simply Popped by JOLLY TIME is so good! It’s a simple, delicious, cleaner snack choice for my family, which you know I always aim for with our family. It still tastes buttery when it pops up hot, fresh & steaming, so they kids love it. Plus, since homemade popcorn on the stove is messy & takes more time, I like that this tastes like I’ve done just that… but with the convenience of the microwave. Simplicity at its best. Haha! Oh- and it’s gluten-free, rich in fiber and whole grains with only 35 calories per cup. Win-win-win!
The kids loved eating in their cars and we told them about drive-in theatre’s from when we were younger. 🙂
We all had a blast. It’s always nice to make memories like this… and have the pictures to remind us of it in a few years. 🙂
After the movie was over, the popcorn was gone and the kids were ready to play, they took their new cars upstairs and played “family”. They pretended to be moms & dads driving their kids around. Hmmm… Sounds familiar!
Have fun creating your OWN memories. I highly recommend doing a drive-in movie in your backyard, on your porch or in your living room. It’s a fun activity and the kids will definitely remember it and ask to do it again. Make memories while you can… this time goes by too fast.
