It seems like outdoor movie nights for families are becoming more and more popular. Outdoor movies used to be the drive ins or community events but I am seeing more and more families investing in projection equipment and building outdoor screens to have movie night in the comfort of their own backyard.
If you have jumped on the outdoor movie night bandwagon, I thought I would share a little twist that is so fun for kids and perfect for warm summer nights. A dive in movie night.
What is dive in movie night? It is an outdoor movie that incorporates the pool. You just set up the outdoor movie as usual and plan for guests to watch from the comfort of a pool float. This week it is going to hit 110 degrees in Sacramento so it is still 99 degrees or more at 9pm when the sun goes down. A dive in movie is something fun and different and perfect for this crazy, hot summer.
Our kids just love dive in movies. We actually first tried this at a hotel in Florida- Mom and Dad pulled lounge chairs right into the shallow end of the pool and the kids continued to splash and play and eventually float while we watched the movie. When they get cold, tired or hungry, just curl up on the grass with a beach towel and watch the rest of the movie.
