When you're stuck in lockdown with kids, you have to find inventive ways to keep them entertained.

And so it was that Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher found themselves at a drive-thru 'Baby Rave'.

As Kunus, 37, told Jimmy Kimmel, it was "Maybe one of the worst (and) greatest things i've ever done." 

It's not the first drive-thru event the couple have taken their kids Wyatt, six and Dimitri, four to in an effort to stay sane. 

"We've done all of them," she continued, adding it took a little convincing to get Kutcher, 43, into the idea. 

"I was like, 'Guys, we're going to a rave.' My husband's like, 'What?' I was like, 'Don't worry about it — I got this,' " Kunis said.

"I took my four-year-old and my six-year-old and my grown-ass husband to a baby rave."

Adding that it was 'lights everywhere' and felt like you were 'tripping on acid' with the family were given glasses that made the lights 'all crazy'. 

Telling Kimmel the kids thought it was the best experience ever, she joked she may get a visit from child protective services following the adventure.


The couple live in California, one of the US states hardest hit by COVID-19, which has to date had more than 3.45 million cases of the virus.

The state is in the midst of a lockdown, with residents told to stay home and to leave only for work or to shop locally. 

Kunis also recently shared the challenges of being under a strict lockdown with two kids on Ellen

Telling DeGeneres how she and Kutcher looked at filming their recent Superbowl ad as a 'two day holiday', and it was a much needed break. 

"In the peak of the pandemic, it made no sense logically, it may have been like the worst (timing). But we were so quarantined, as you know, and I was also dying to get out of the house," she said.

"I was literally like, 'I don't care, I need to get out of this house!' I looked at it as a two-day vacation."

Kunis also joked about her kids superpower to always know where she was in the house.

​"I love my kids very much, we both do, but they're like dogs: they can sniff you out!"

"They know your smell, they know what room you're hiding in — you can't get away from them. You just can't. They're just there."
