Birthday Parties At The Campsite – Drive-In Theme

What child doesn’t love a good birthday party?

Who doesn’t love a good birthday party at the campsite?

When given the choice between renting out a party facility (pool, gymnastics, or activity centre), my kids prefer to celebrate their birthday parties at the campsite – hands down each time!

Each year we try to do something a bit different. I would like to share with you how we celebrated Chloe’s 4th Birthday Party at the campsite. It was a Drive-In theme!

The kids decorated their own cars from boxes, which they could sit in while watching the movie.

 Watching Home Alone. We hung a sheet to our awning, using clothes pins, and projected the movie onto it with an LCD projector.

We gave each guest a popcorn container with a bag of popcorn, some magic milk straws, a few candies and a bolo-bat. I wish that we would have take picture of that as well.

The party was a big success. We had strangers come over and watch the movie with us.

It was a great way to celebrate my daughter’s 4th birthday.

Just last week I asked Chloe what she would like to do for her birthday this year and she said that she would like to have her friends down to the campsite again. Now I just need to think of a good theme!

If you have any theme suggestions, I’d love to hear them!

Happy Camping!
