The other day my husband and I disassembled one of our armoires.
When my husband removed the top, this fun surprise came fluttering down! A whole set of photo booth props I’d made for my oldest son’s birthday a few years ago.
We never did use them, and they were too fun-looking to throw out!
That’s when I got an idea!!
Let’s use them for a fun photo session!!
Oh my word, my kids had so much fun posing with the hats, mustache, clown nose, glasses, and bow tie.
In fact, they had so much fun, only these two pictures turned out.
But who cares! The point was that they had fun.
You don’t have to invest hardly any money in these props.
Here is what I used:
Colored scrap book or collage paper
I Googled “Photo Booth Props” and chose the ones I thought would be fun, and then cut patterns out of scrap paper. Using the patterns, I cut out my props and taped them to the skewers.
It just so happened that the armoire we took down left a nice white wall that I could use as a back drop. You can also use fun wrapping paper or make a colorful pendent.
You can get as creative as you’d like.
But don’t forget to have fun!!
You can even let your kids dress up and use their toys as props – they can be superheros, princesses, or their favorite cartoon character.
You can do a silly photo shoot by dressing up in crazy costumes and making faces.
Make it even more fun by having a photo contest to see who can be the silliest!
