Fun Movie Activities for Kids

Looking for something fun to do with the kids this summer? We have ideas for fun movie activities for kids: You can come up with your own ideas as well, just pick a movie then think of a fun activity to go with it!

boxcar#1. Drive In Movie

Have some fun making box cars, we love these easy-to-make ones on Today’s Parent.

You can use clothes pegs to clip on a little basket or smaller box to hold popcorn and rink. Then setup your Drive In Movie with each child getting a car to climb in and what else but Cars 2 on the bill.

#2. Make Some Meatballs

MeatballsOne of our favourite family films is cloudy with a chance of meatballs, with its rather wacky story of inventor Flint Lockwood who makes clouds rain food, so the citizens of Chewandswallow can feed themselves. But naturally things start to go wrong…

Why not rustle up a batch of meatballs for dinner, with this super easy recipe from Catriona at Wholesome Ireland. Kids love rolling out the meatballs themselves and getting their fingers all messy (don’t forget to wash hands afterwards).

Or how about trying this fantastic spaghetti and meatballs cake from Caitriona at Wholesome Ireland which was inspired by the movie?

recycledrobots#3. Space and Robots

You can have some great fun with the ideas of space and robots all inspired by Wall-E, the movie about the little robot who helps clean up the mess left behind by humans on Earth.

Make your own robot crafts, we found this picture of tin cans recycled into robots online with some fun pipe cleaners for hair and eyes made out of stoppers or googly eyes stuck on. robots

Or check out this cute robot craft activity which can be found on the Awesomestorytime blog.

Save up some of your dry recycling, e.g. toilet paper rolls, tin cans, milk cartons, egg cartons and get out some poster paints and set up a robot assembly line at the kitchen table!

#4. Monster Fun

“The rest of the afternoon was spent adventuring around the house with a stuffed Hello Kitty as Puss in Boots and plastic horse as Donkey.”
