Treehouse Movie Night! Plus $150 giftcard giveaway!


I think we may need a bigger treehouse.  Or perhaps it's just right, nice and cozy, where everyone is touching at least 2 other people, or more, if that person's name happens to be momma.  I put Drummer to bed, Ryan whipped up a big plate of chocolate pancakes to be eaten without fork OR plate, and we shooed the baby dills up the tree with pillow and blanket where a movie projected on a pillowcase was waiting for them: Treehouse Movie Night.
I set up the pillow case for our screen in the treehouse before everyone clambered up the ladder.
We needed provisions, of course: I prepared popcorn cones, just cut up paper bags and taped, mini water bottles, and theater candy boxes.
There was some disagreement about the movie choice, but I wanted a movie from a book, so we settled on Babar the Elephant, with promises of more treehouse movie nights down the road.
It was an evening of absolute perfection.  The kids kept asking what the pillow case was for, anticipating something exciting.  And it was.
The night was actually refreshingly cool with more of a breeze being up so high, and I was worried it would blow the pillowcase too much, but the movement made the movie kind of 3D :)
The 3M projector is SUPER easy to use.  All you do is plug it into your device (works with ipod touch 3rd, 4th generation, all ipads, iphones with the cable it comes with--you can also use it with your computer with an additional cable.)  You control the movie with your device, with just the volume controls on the projector.
Although it we used ours relatively close proximity, you can project an image of up to 80" diameter (perfect if you have an outside wall you want to use for big gatherings).  Ryan and I watched some youtube on the ceiling when I was first testing it out.
To sum up the 3M Mobile Projector:


✪ It's small and very portable.  There aren't any big clunky things you have to wrestle with.  You could take it with you, and use your apple device to show a movie to the masses anywhere--always ready for entertainment!
✪ Battery charge lasts--I've only charge it once and we've watched several things on it without it needing to be charged again.
✪ Simple!  It was so easy to use, just plug it in and you're set.
✪ My favorite and best feature of all: it's just plain fun.  It reminded me of the old drive-in movies I would go to when I was younger, being outside, snuggled up together!  The girls all thanked us for the fun movie night when it was over instead of whining that they had to go to bed.  Like I said, the best.


The only drawback we found was the volume.  Being inside and close to the projector, it wasn't a problem (plus the kids were in bed ;), but outside, the sound was muffled by the wind and leaves blowing, so we would use plug-in speakers next time for better sound.
The kids thoroughly enjoyed it, as did the parents who climbed up for the last portion of the movie to snuggle with sleepy girls.
We're already planning our next treehouse movie night.
The 3M Mobile Projector is available at Target. You can learn more and find special offers at this link.
And for you?  I have a $150 Target GiftCard (that you can use, of course, towards your very own 3M Mobile Projector if you'd like ;)!  Leave a comment here, how do you do family movie nights?

  1. We do movie night snuggled on the couch with the lights off. Thanks for the opportunity to win.=)

  2. It's just my husband and I (at least for another few weeks), so we do our movie nights snuggled up in bed. I'm usually asleep before the opening sequence is over.

  3. Most of the people in our family are adults, and family movie nights are rare these days. But our family movie night usually involves either kettle corn or popcorn with plain M&Ms, and cuddling a sleepy four-year-old while her baby sister sleeps in the next room. It's usually whatever movie has caught her interest this month--last time it was the new Muppet movie. Movie nights become Bit's "night night show" and end when one of the boys carries a sleeping Bit into my room and puts her to bed in the Train toddler bed.

  4. Our family movie nights are spent curled up on a huge Love Sac in front of the TV, with lots of popcorn of course. It takes a lot of muscle to move the Love Sac into the Family room, and of course it remains there for a few days after, but it's totally worth the snuggles :)

  5. We have no TV hookup or channels so when we watch TV it is only with movies. In our family, every Friday night is pizza and a movie night.

    I love that the kids aren't in front of the TV all the time and they love the tradition and eagerly wait for Fridays to get here. It has been great.

    I would *LOVE* to add a projecter to our entourage- all the gorgeousness of outdoor movies on Pinterest has me salivating.

    ReplyDelete
  6. This is an awesome idea (and projector)! We do Friday night movie night every Friday. It always involves popcorn (of course) and the kids usually pick the same movies over and over. I can't tell you the number of times I've seen Wall-E.

    ReplyDelete
  7. It is so funny that this post came up today! My hubby and I were just talking about starting movie nights soon (my kids are 2 and 4 so bedtime is a little early) and buying a projector to do it outside. We have two trees fairly close and we were going to try and hang a bedsheet in between.

    ReplyDelete
  8. What a fun idea...I've not seen this projector before. Our movie night always consist of lots of popcorn sitting in our family room.

    ReplyDelete
  9. Very fun. I live all summer at the family beach house with all my nieces and nephews. We throw blankets and pillows all over the floor, pop popcorn, eat ice cream, and watch movies at least once a week. We all cuddle on the floors and just hang out. It is a great time. This projector would be so fun for movies on the beach.

  10. We do movie night with a netflix and homemade popcorn!

  13. this is the coolest thing ever! I just saw it over at Liz & Elizabeth's site too - love it!

    I love that you did it outdoors in the treehouse, I think we would have to have drive up movies in our backyard - would be very cool with big cardboard cars for the kids to sit in. Or at the very least, Big Wheels....ha!

    ReplyDelete
  14. My husband has been dreaming of a projector for at least 7 years! This would be fantastic!

    ReplyDelete
  15. We bring a tablecloth into the the family room and let the kids drink soda and eat popcorn and hot tomales. Because of the tablecloth the mess is containted and easily cleaned and the kids get a kick out of eating in front of the TV

    ReplyDelete
  16. Movie night always includes a quilt for cuddling a boy and a girl. Even if it's 90 degrees outside!

    ReplyDelete
  17. Oooh, I love this idea! How neat! We have only watched a couple of movies with my 2.5 year old, and it's been on the couch snuggled between mama and papa. Thanks for the great giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  18. Since our kiddies are still little, we're pretty simple. Popcorn and a Pixar flick suit us just fine! :)

    ReplyDelete
  19. Just all 5 of us scattered around the living room. I would live this cute little projector to do a movie camp-out.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Looks fun! Movie night here is rare, but usually adults on the couch, kids on the floor with popcorn.

    ReplyDelete
  21. We bring our favorite blankets into the family room, make popcorn and settle down on the couch or floor for the film. Usually we are all asleep by the end of the film and since we are all tucked in, we just stay downstairs to sleep.

  22. This is so cool!! We could have a blast with this watching movies on our patio!! Right now movie night is more like movie afternoon. Since my son is 3 we don't get to watch movies as a family at night yet. usually him and i cuddle for a while and then i sneak away to get something done while he is watching with my husband. But hubby and I are huge into movies and have movie night every chance we get. We have seen over 1,000 movies together. It's our favorite thing and we can't wait to include our son at night, when he is older :)

  23. I would love to have an outdoor movie night!!

    ReplyDelete
  25. This is great! so inspiring!! We have been talking a lot about tree houses recently and have decided to plan this summer and make it happen next! can't wait. I never thought of doing movie night in the treehouse! I call a movie night when everyone is tired and needs a break from work or play! anopportunity to veg out. we all cuddle on the couch with popcorn or ice cream and watch a movie. This is a treat as we do not have TV or really include sugar in our diet....

    ReplyDelete

  28. we do family movie nights cuddled up on the couch, but this looks like way more fun!

  29. Our movie night is on Sundays. We had found ourselves eating out just too often, so we've restricted ourselves to Sunday nights - we take turns picking the restaurant, then Daddy goes and picks up food while I get our movie room all set up. The kids eat on a blanket on the floor, but as soon as Daddy and I are finished eating, they finish their dinners on our laps. We usually watch about half of a movie on a movie night (our bedtime here is still 7:00), and then have the anticipation of finishing it all week! We try to watch "older kid" movies, because there's a lot of animation all week long. :)

  31. So very cool- I had no idea anything like this existed!
    My boys are older and bigger so doing a movie night that we all agree on is VERY hard.
    I could see using this at knit night or on girls weekends when we are all sitting around knitting at remote locations.

    ReplyDelete
  32. I have four daughters (until 3 weeks from now when we welcome home little brother!) We have been doing Friday night pajama parties for years now and I love it. Everyone in pj's, a movie on the TV and dinner and snacks on blankets. Sometimes we shake it up by putting up a tent or blowing up an air mattress.
    It's a family favorite tradition!

    ReplyDelete
  33. We curl up on the bed in the cupola and watch with the lights out - very cozy! Thanks for the chance

    ReplyDelete
  37. What a cool projector! Thanks for sharing...I added it to my amazon wish list : ). We do family movie night by projecting a movie on a big screen we got from an elementary school that was remodeling. This mobile projector looks just right for kids and so much fun! Too bad the tree house isn't included in the giveaway - amazing! : )

    ReplyDelete
  38. I hadn't even heard of that projector before..very very neat. Our family nights usually treating our son to a few episodes of Backyardigans with stovetopped popcorn. That or a quick walk to the ice cream place!

    ReplyDelete
  44. Oooh, how I want one of these! We live in a tiny neighborhood full of kids, and we have speakers and a great garage door. I see Movie Nights for the kids all summer! The classics: ET, Jungle Book, Star Wars...the works! What fun!!!

    ReplyDelete
  45. My daughter is just 5 so we haven't done a movie night yet. Honestly, I was thinking of this as more fun for me and my DH!

    ReplyDelete
  46. Our movie nights are CHAOS since we have so many age groups (adults, pre-teen, kindergartener, toddler...and we'll assume the infant doesn't count now). However, movie nights MUST involve popcorn and/or Pirate's Booty or at least two of the kids will mutiny! :)

    ReplyDelete
  47. We usually make a pallet in the living room but it would be SO fun to do one on the deck!!

    ReplyDelete
  48. We have a camper and have talked about getting one of theses so we can do a movie night on our MANY camping trips! (Unfortunately it has not yet fit into the budget!) These look like great fun!

    ReplyDelete
  49. That is so cool! We usually just turn out the lights and everyone smuggles close on the couch. Recently, the kiddies tried to watch a movie in the tent, but had to crowd around my iPhone screen. That projector would totally blow their mind! Thanks for the chance to win. :)

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  89. In the summer we use our big ol' clunky projector and a big white sheet for an outdoor movie night in the backyard!

    ReplyDelete
  90. Movie nights are snuggled up on the couch but we've always wanted to watch movies outside and this would be perfect!

    ReplyDelete
  91. That looks sweet! We sporadically do movie - afternoons. (Our kids get amped after a move - or maybe its the type of movie we all like to watch.) We wear our PJ's, the kids like kettle corn via the microwave and little tiny cans of root bear. :) I like M&M's and a pot of coffee. Not sure what the husband fixes *laughing*. Its like the dinner table, up down up down. Oh, and lots of blankets - to cuddle up with ....and who's to say they also protect the carpet? :)

    ReplyDelete
  92. that's awesome!!
    Our movie nights vary, but tend to fall on holidays - New Years Eve, Valentines, Christmas Eve, after trick-or-treating... so the treats depend on the holiday. We pull our futon into a bed and pile on with pillows and blankets, turn off the lights and pass the treats around! My husband has borrowed a projector from work which is extra fun.

    ReplyDelete
  93. With summer coming, would be great to elevate our outdoor movie nights- which to date have involved dragging the tv and dvd player outside- ha! Your tree-house set-up is dreamy by the way :).

    ReplyDelete
  94. We love family movie night....we all sit together on the couch and eat caramel corn.

    ReplyDelete
  97. You're making me jealous of your tree house! We have boring movie nights, in doors, in front of the TV on the couch. But here's hoping for a new projector!

    ReplyDelete
  98. We typically watch a Netflix or Redbox movie (usually an action or a comedy at my husband's request). We watch it on our couch, usually with snacks like popcorn and ice cream. I have a feeling that our movie nights will become more infrequent and more special as our family grows.

    ReplyDelete
  99. How fun! My kiddos would LOVE this (and me too!) We do movies nights in front of the computer screen half of the time (it's a better screen than our old television). :) Hope we win!

    ReplyDelete
  100. There is still a local drive-in, which we LOVE, but oh, to cast a flick upon the garage door and invite a few small friends! That would be perfect, and I had no idea projectors were so accessible.

    ReplyDelete
  101. I've been wanting a projector for AGES. This is perfect!!!!!!

  108. Nearly every Saturday night after Sabbath we have popcorn and a movie. The girls love it, especially since it is one of the few times they get to watch tv.

    ReplyDelete
  109. Movie nights are a special treat around here, not because we do anything special, but because they don't get to watch TV too much. We do often pop some popcorn and add some candy in it for a special family tradition.

    ReplyDelete
  110. it's not a movie night for our family without homemade pizza and ice cream and brownie to indulge on while watching a movie.

  111. Oh, we normally try to do movie marathons... our next challenge is a Harry Potter marathon! My daughter's friend did this and it took them about 22 hours. I'm waiting for summer break and foggy weather (common here in the summer) so we can not feel too guilty about being coach potatoes for so long! Will probably have to make butter beer and cauldron cakes too!

    ReplyDelete
  112. I have dreamed of having an outdoor movie night and you have inspired me!!! I think an evening outside with a movie and popcorn sounds divine! I have wanted to buy a projector but we just can't afford one so this gift card would definitely help!

  125. When it's with our almost-three-year-old, we love to spread out a big blanket with snacks on the living room floor and pick out a movie from Netflix Instant (they have great kids' movies). If it's just me and the hubby, we usually snuggle up in bed with the iPad and a rented movie from iTunes. And I usually knit. It's the best! Thanks for the chance to win! The treehouse movie night looks like SO much fun!

    ReplyDelete

  137. We do movie nights with everyone cuddled close on the couch with snacks for all! My favorite part of our movie nights are when the movie is over - our girls insist on dancing to the credit song! As soon as a movie ends we have girls yelling "lets dance" - it makes me smile thinking about it! What a great giveaway!

  138. Movie night is in mommy's room (of course) and my two lil ones take turns on picking a movie. I love to soak up these moments because they grow up TOO fast!

    ReplyDelete
  139. Looks like fun! My girls are pretty scared about movies, so we usually watch them on the couch, with all the lights on, and ready to fastfoward at any moment:)

  143. My family right now is just my husband and me, and we don't have a couch, or a tv, so we set the laptop up on a board on our bed, and snuggle up with lots of popcorn.

  144. I've wanted a movie projector for a long time. Mother's Day cam and went without one :(
    We spend a lot of time outside. Our house is rather small and we use our backyard as an extension of our living room. In order to have outdoor movie night we set up a table and bring out our tv. We will hook up our computer and sometimes we will set up our wii in order to watch and play outside. We just love being outside under the stars. But setting everything up a rather long and troublesome task... I find myself doing it less and less. The 3M Mobile Projector would be wonderful. This giveaway would help a bunch. Thank you!

  150. We snuggle up on the couch to do a movie night, although I can't remember the last time we did it. Perhaps we'll have to make an effort to do it more often as our children are getting older and more able to sit through a whole movie.

  155. It's just my fiance, my six month old daughter, our wiener dog, and I, at home, so movie nights consists of giving the little one a warm bath while her daddy makes treats downstairs in the kitchen. Then we all snuggle up in bed, George at our feet, the baby asleep between us, and we watch movies and make soft, snarky comments over her sweet little head. Hahah.

  160. We do movie night with homemade pizza, some mattresses on the living room floor and any and all friends welcome to join in. Our two kids (14 and 11) have a gang of kids in the neighborhood and they love to come over and hang out at our house for a movie...or two!

  161. We usually just park it on the couch. However, we tried a projector once on the side of the house with a sheet. It didn't work very well, but the projector was pretty rickety. This seems like a much better option.

    By the way, I love the cones of snacks being ferried up and down.

  162. We order some pizza and curl up on the couch.

  167. We currently do a weekly movie night with friends on the couch in the living room (not so exciting) but have grand visions of projecting onto the back side or our neighbor's garage which butts up to our property line. This would be the perfect device to make this a reality!

  180. First of all can I just say that's an AMaZING tree house. Movie night at our house means everyone in our house squeezes onto our couch. Often we have breakfast for dinner and eat while watching the movie.

  182. We do movie nights on the couch with popcorn or at the table with dinner on nights when we just can't wait. We love to watch movies from our own childhoods with the kids (Indiana Jones and The Princess Bride are perennial favourites) and marvel at how they never complain about the lack of newfangled special effects.
