Creating a photo booth at your kids parties is an inexpensive alternative to hiring a professional photographer and still getting fun pictures to remember and share with the guests.
Set up a backdrop in an area of your party that can be easily created by decorating white craft paper rolls or poster board with letters that spell out the theme of your party, example “Super Kai”
Create props from repurposing cardboard boxes and other household items (i.e. cartoon style buildings)
To make the Gotham Box City:
Assemble an assortment of rectangular unprinted cardboard boxes to resemble city buildings, you will need approximately 6 to 8 boxes. If the boxes have printing on them just wrap each one in a different color wrapping paper
To make the windows there are two options:
You can either draw them on with a marker or cut them out carefully with a pair of scissors
or a knife.
* If you cut the windows out, you could also add lamp fixture to give it the affect that the lights are on inside of the building.
Assemble the boxes to in a maze formation so that the kids can run through them casually or as a relay race.
Boxes can be used to create a play castle for a princess theme, the OK Corral for a cowboy theme or any other structures you can dream up. Creativity is in the imagination you apply to ordinary objects to make them extraordinary!
Using a Polaroid camera take photos posing in front of the backdrop. Let them color the frame and take the photo home. The frames can be made of the same foam sheets that were used to make the invitations.
For added fun, have costumes on hand for the kids to dress up in for their pictures (i.e. superhero masks and capes)
