Photo booths are pretty much the new must-have kids party activity from every one we’ve been to lately. Photo booth style is even taking over greeting cards these days. But the truth is, you don’t have to spend a grand on a professional service or even own a super pricy SLR for kids to have fun dressing up and taking silly pictures. That’s why we love this tutorial to help you DIY with little more than a laptop, the right app, and of course, loads of boas and glasses.

kids did, for oh…three straight hours–I can guarantee you she knows what
she’s talking about. I even have the photo evidence. –Liz
