super hero photo booth

This week on Babyccino Kids I share Henrik’s super hero photo booth:

For Henrik’s super hero party I thought it would be fun for the kids to feel like they were real super heroes flying through the sky saving lives, so we created a city scene photo booth.  At first the kids didn’t understand why they needed to lay on the ground with their arms stretched out and their feet pointed. Once they saw the pictures they understood they were more willing to oblige and started getting into it.  The adults at the party had so much fun watching the kids strike their different super hero poses.

To make the city scene all you need is an old blue sheet, a ladder, a cloud pillow or two, buildings made out of cereal boxes and duct tape, and of course a willing super hero with a cape and mask.  For the buildings I enlisted the help of my good friend Merrilee, who among her many talents is something of a duct tape genius.  Aren’t her buildings amazing?!!!  They really make the photo booth.  Thanks Merrilee.

All the photos are taken by the lovely Ashley Thalman.  To see more pictures from the super hero party and a leather mask DIY click here and here.

I saw this idea originally many years ago in a craft book and unfortunately I can’t remember the name of the book, maybe someone can help me out?

    Hello, I love this idea and was thinking of setting one up at our family centre. I was wondering how much space it would need. I can imagine you need floor space for the sheet but how much space for the photographer. Do they need to climb up on something like a ladder?

      Hello, yes the photographer got up on a ladder and used her wide angle lens. Best of luck!
