This month, our 252Basics Theme is “God Made Me”! We’ll be talking about how God wants to use our story, our gifts, and our relationships to make a difference. We set up a very simple photo booth in order to show case the kids and their individuality. Check it out!
This is one of those cubical type dividers. We used it as a Sunday School room wall for many a year before the gym was built and now it sits in the storage room collecting dust. It served as a perfect “booth” for our photo sessions! Providing just enough privacy for the kids to get goofy and just enough open-ness for other kids to see the fun and want to get in on the action!
Here’s a close-up of the sign. Remember, glitter makes everything better.
I hung the sign with thumb-tacks and placed the booth right where you can see it as you walk through the gym doors. On the flip side, I hung a sheet with thumb tacks (at first I tried staples…bad idea) to give a plain background.
I set out a box of props for the kids — wigs, glasses, headbands, scarfs, eye patches, etc.
Next week, I’m going to try to make some of these funny mustache props.
You can find these at Etsy!
We used a regular point and shoot camera and then I just cropped the images and plugged them into Animoto!
Check out the results!

UPDATE: Here are a few more pictures to give you a broader view of the “booth”.
This is what the kids saw as they walked into the gym.
Here’s where the pictures happened!
