Have you been to a free movie night in the park? These events have been popping up everywhere over the past few years. And it is easy to understand why. They are free, fun, and perfect for summer. We have a large family, and movie nights in the park are a neat way for us to enjoy a night out with little expense. In our area, movie nights in the park are held at community parks, ball parks, and churches. Part of the appeal of these movie nights are that they can be completely on-the-go, spontaneous events. After all, isn’t that what a piece of what makes summer, summer?
We have several friends who attend movie nights in their community park consistently. I thought that it would be nice to make one of them a gift basket for them to take with them the next time that they visit. This way, they have something close by for when they see a last minute outdoor movie night pop up in their Facebook feed and decide to go! It consist of a few snack and food items, as well as a few things that they can use every time.
#1 Start with a Basket or Crate
I opted for a crate instead of a basket for this gift. The crate is sturdy and reusable, and it holds a large amount of snacks.
#2 A Picnic Blanket
Picnic blankets make for a cute gift and is a must-have for an outdoor movie night. I have learned that even we bring our own lawn chairs to an outdoor movie, the kids wind up on the ground before the night is complete. It is also a nice addition to have for spreading out food and drinks.
Every movie night needs snacks! Most of the free outdoor movie nights that I have been to have had no snacks provided or for sale. In this crate, I included all savory snacks. Popcorn and trail mix are always classic favorites. I placed the snacks in individual treat bags and tied them with twine for a cute look.
#4 Drinks and Fun Straws
I think the summer Share a Coke campaign from Coca-Cola™ is so fun! This year, there are 1000+ names available on multiple Coca-Cola™ brands and packages, including first and last names. Who else has favorite memories of sharing an ice cold Coca-Cola™ during summer’s hottest moments?
