VROOM VROOM! When the deadly summer heat produces either oppressive outdoor play conditions or thunderstorms, it might be time to move inside. We’re trying to mix it up with a fun drive-in movie experience easy and an inexpensive DIY cardboard car! Easy to customize to each child’s preference, too! Thanks to Camp Warner Bros. for encouraging our creativity and making these at home days a little more bearable.
If you want to catch up on the summer fun we’ve had so far, there’s Superhero Training (week 1), Crystal Gem Rock Candy Recipe (week 2), and Gummy Bear Slime (EW! Week 3), and Scooby-Doo Puppy Chow (week 4) for you to enjoy. Week 5 saw us making Teen Titans GO Money Jars and Week 6 was sweat worthy as we practiced more of our family workouts!
DIY Drive-in Movie Cardboard Car
It’s easy to make your drive-in cardboard car your own with this help of this Tom & Jerry Hot Rod Creation Kit. You can print out wheels, a dashboard, grills, license plates, and decals to make your car complete. Try adding your own artwork to a simple box to give it a custom look all your own.
Red had to make a custom cardboard car for Scouts, and he wanted to model it after his favorite Jurassic Park jeep toy. Daddy helped make some big cuts and we whipped out the tape for extra sturdiness. Here’s the before and after!
Scarlett took her own angle with plenty of purple fun and a door or two. Easy purple wheels are created with appetizer party plates and some tacky glue. Scarlett wanted more of a convertible look for her hot rod to race to the movie screen, so we left off any tops or moon roofs. Please notice her working driver side “door” and custom grill marker.
Once your cardboard car is complete – the family can all sit back, relax, and get nostalgic while watching America’s favorite cat and mouse duo as they race around the world in Tom & Jerry Movie: The Fast & The Furry!
Tom and Jerry enter an extreme car race competition called the “Super Race” in order to win the grand prize of a beautiful, dream mansion! Driving suped-up hot rods that can adapt to any environment (land, sea or air), they compete in this wild race around the world, encountering famous landmarks along the way and leaving chaos in their wake.
