Baby Drive-In: Grab-and-Go

Baby Drive-In

The Baby Drive-In is coming to you as a grab-and-go kit this year! 

All you'll need to have on hand at home is a cardboard box and some glue (or tape). The Baby Drive-In Kit supplies the rest needed to decorate and transform your box into a kid-friendly car. For a tutorial on this, check out this video created by Miss Marianne.

Each kit will contain:

  • a large sheet of paper to cover your box
  • cutout circles for wheels and headlights
  • a paper plate for a steering wheel
  • a packet of microwave popcorn - for the grownups!
  • a list of suggested titles for viewing via Hoopla Digital*

 

Registration for kits will take place for children 0-2 years old from July 29 thru August 12, while supplies last. Once you've registered to reserve your kit, you will receive an email with instructions on how to pick up your kit at the library. 

 

*CPL Library card required in order to use Hoopla Digital

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. 

You'll need:

  • 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!
