How to Make a Kids Movie Theatre Box for Family Movie Night

Before Coronavirus my family and I went to the movies on a weekly basis. When the world shut down, I knew that I needed to implement a Family Movie Night at home. Now, this is something my whole family looks forward to, grandparents included. Every movie night, we make it a big deal for the kids. It is slushies, candy, and popcorn galore! But, to make it a little more legit, we made some movie boxes for the kids to add that movie theatre touch. And my family’s favorite mantra, sharing is caring, so here is a tutorial to make family movie night at your house a little more special. (In the VERY DISTANT future, your kids will be telling their kids their favorite memory and this will be one of them).
