Movie Night - Cars 2

Last night we had the chance to go see Cars 2! So I went ahead and took the opportunity to make it a fun movie night. Our last here in GTMO!

Since we don't have any of Ashlyn's toy cars right now (we only kept her absolute favorite toys and the rest are on their way to our new home) I printed out a Cars 2 playset.

I also printed out some coloring pages.

I didn't know when it was playing in time to plan a meal around it, but we went out to eat. But I did make something special to put up in our car when we got to the theater (we have an outdoor theater here).

I just trimmed some butcher paper to the size of our sun shade, colored it, then taped it onto the sun shade. Ashlyn thought it was so cool!

We all enjoyed the movie. I probably like the first Cars better, but I thought this one was really fun, too. :) Have you seen Cars 2 yet? What did you think?


  1. The 1st part of any movie sequel is always the best for me. However, I also anticipate the other installments, as these parts show how the story unfolds. Even if Cars 2 isn't necessarily a continuation of the 1st one, it's still better to watch both if you just want to enjoy the show! :D

  2. This is a great way to enjoy your favorite car movie. I love how you prepared the coloring sets, and the outdoor theater is an awesome idea. I think Ashlyn had a great time. She is very pretty, by the way.
