    Kids love cartoons and movies so setting up a garden movie night for them is bound to catch on. They will be in seventh heaven watching their favorite characters and eating popcorn outside. There is no better entertainment for warm summer nights!

    THE SCREEN AND THE PROJECTOR

    These two are essential for the whole enterprise. If you have no access to them, you can just put a TV on a table. Kids will love it anyway.

    SNACKS
