We're kicking off 'Read Across America Week' with an easy-to-create photo booth! Do you celebrate Dr. Seuss' birthday?! Every year our school participates in a week long celebration: Silly socks, guests readers from our community and a family picnic on campus! It's loads of fun and we all look forward to it every year!
DIY PHOTO BOOTH
I took cardboard letters from Shindigz and painted them to resemble letters out of a Dr. Seuss story! I used brightly colored paints from DecoArt and started bringing the letters to life.
I took a small painting sponge and applied the paint to the cardboard. I purposely applied the paint unevenly to give it more character.
Once I was finished painting the letter, I brushed on some black markings that we see on a lot of the Dr. Seuss illustrations.
Balloon garlands are one of my favorite elements in any celebration! They're easy to make and they add so much color! I love choosing coordinating balloons each time - the garlands are unique to every party.
I purchased Dr. Seuss themed clip art from Etsy and quickly added them to a cardboard frame. Add as little or as much as you want for a picture perfect photo!
Will you be celebrating with some 'Read Across America' activities at your school?
