All kids who have come to our house LOVE doing homemade photo booths! I first learned of this when we went to a birthday party for our twin cousins who were turning 16. Their friends had so much fun, but so did the little kids. Even my daughter, who was not quite 3 at the time, joined in, and the teenagers didn’t even mind. This means it is fun for ALL AGES. Even the adults were jumping in with hats, signs, and silly glasses. Everyone had a blast, and it makes for HOURS of fun when you have a very large group of people.
You simply hang a backdrop of your choice, choose props, and start snapping pictures! We use sheets or blankets for the backdrops, but you can use other things such as streamers from a rod, plastic table cloths, or whatever else your imagination can conjure up. For props, we use whatever dress-up items the kids have accumulated, sports equipment, and anything else we find laying around the house. If you don’t have much or don’t have anything at all, you can buy many fun items at dollar store. If you have a Dollar Tree nearby, everything they sell is $1.00. I have also picked things up when they are 75% off after Halloween.
We do photo booths for parties, events, and even just with our kids at home. It always provides hours of fun, laughs, and using our imaginations. Here are just some of our photo booth pictures:
