I have something really fun to share with you today!
Eeek! I am so excited for this review and giveaway! My husband has wanted a projector for YEARS and we just never got that far down on our wish list. So I (or should I say my gadget-lovin’ husband) was so excited for the chance to review one. We received 3M‘s new mobile projector. It hooks up to your iPhone or iPad. If you don’t have an Apple device you can hook it up to your laptop, if you buy the connection cord. The projector is sold at one of my favorite stores, Target. You can watch YouTube videos, TV content, movies and photo slideshows! You can learn more and find special offers here.
We have so many plans for it! We have a big party planned for the neighborhood soon. And we used it in our bedroom when one of our kids wasn’t feeling well. He was quarantined so he watched a movie on our wall. But the idea I am sharing today is a homemade drive-in movie theater!
We made cars out of cardboard boxes, duct tape, spray paint and paper plates. Here is the post with the tutorial: Cardboard Cars And I have a lot of other tutorials and kid activities found here: Kid Activities
We need four of them. My two-year-old is obsessed with buses, so I made this look like a bus, sort of. He’s two. HE was impressed.
Here they are while dad was setting up the projector.
I have to say that given the size of the projector I was expecting the screen size to be a lot smaller and IF we were able to get it bigger I thought it would be blurry. But my husband and I were pleasantly surprised! My kids LOVED watching a movie in their “cars” and with such a large screen. We don’t watch a lot of TV as it is, but this was definitely a novelty for them. We even had some neighbor kids come over later and ooooh and awwww over it.
I had my husband measure the screen. It nearly covered the whole nine-foot-wall! And we could have made it bigger if we had been able to get the projector back farther. It was so clear. My camera does not do it justice. The sound was perfect for our home with our family but we may have to hook up speakers to it when we have our neighborhood party.
