Photo Booth Phrenzy

  • Various clothes based on program themes
  • Costumes
  • Any photo taking device, preferably with 'continous shooting mode'

Create a photo booth in your own backyard.

Grab your mobile phone or dedicated camera and get creative!


  • Make real-life 'Snapchat filters', then take a pic side-by-side with Snapchat (be sure to have art supplies and costumes on hand)
  • Recreate pictures you already have from old family vacations, school pics, pictures of parents, grandparents or a family member's wedding, etc.
  • Grab props () you have around the house - the sillier the better!
  • Gather as many clothes/costumes as possible and place them in a pile. Then set up the phone to take pictures in continous, 10-second shooting mode.
  • Have someone yell out a theme for each picture but only once the 10 second timer starts. Better get in costume fast!
