Instantly, my mind started racing & I started making my plan of how I was going to accomplish it & pull it off for my Christmas Party events coming up in a few days!
Earlier in the day, my mind was a dull. I was exhausted & not sure why, I had just woken up 4 hours prior. I was running errands & felt like I could have fallen asleep at the wheel. I took in a Coke that afternoon & my mind made up for what was lacking earlier in the morning.
Thursday morning I ran through Hobby Lobby & gathered my craft foam & sticks for the props I had seen on Pinterest the night before. I gathered scrap paper from teacher recycling bins while I did school recess/lunch. Going from class to class I made my cut outs by freehand drawing them. If they weren't quite right, I'd try again. I also had a captive audience, the students & asked for their opinions & if they could recognize the item. The older kids loved the idea of a photo booth at a party & wanted to be invited to my house. Not happening!
You can do this too!
Look at mine! I am not an artist by any means, but elementary art class taught me a thing or two.
I free handed mine on scrap paper & then traced & cut.
Hot glue the sticks to your cut outs & away you go!
Now I am just waiting for all the guest to arrive & inform them of all the fun they are going to have at the Photo Booth!
Some guests may be resistant to taking pictures & having a little bit of fun this Christmas season. In the event that this may happen, I am getting the kids/teenagers involved. I am printing up a list of "Pictures to Take" & they can check them off as they go. For example, Take a picture with..... You & Grandpa, You & a parent. You & an Aunt, You & a cousin. etc. You can change this to fit the guests at your party!
After I have recovered from entertaining, I will print the pictures for the guests or slap them all over Facebook & spread Christmas joy!
How are you making your Christmas Entertaining fun?
