NORTH JACKSON, Ohio —

A woman in Ohio just earned "cool grandma" status after hosting a drive-in movie party for her family.

Sherry Pratt, 49, is a grandmother of six. She told ABC News that she came up with the idea after seeing a projector on Amazon. She ended up recreating a drive-in movie experience for the kids in her family.

“I thought, ‘Wouldn’t it be fun to have an outdoor movie night?’ So I made these cars out of these little boxes for them. My son is a graphic designer, so I had him make the license plates with their names,” Pratt said. “Things just kept popping in my head to make it like a real drive-in. We just invited anybody who could make it. I think we had 12 children there.”

Her niece, 18-year-old Jessie Woods, posted photos of the event to Twitter, where they quickly went viral.

Photos showed the colorful cars lined up in front of the projector, along with individual snack boxes for each kid.

“It’s just so nice to be close to everyone and to be able to see them all the time. It just feels good,” Woods said.
