Obviously, I’ve been MIA lately and will probably be a sporadic poster for the few weeks. We just welcomed a new addition to our family, so posting has taken a back burner. That being said, I’ve scheduled a few posts for the upcoming weeks.
Before I went on maternity leave at work, I organized a few programs for the library. The first is a superhero photo booth. Our library system is holding it’s second annual library con in January and all the branches are doing lead up events. Because I won’t be there to run it, I decided to organize a really easy, but FUN, passive program.
Basically, we reserved one of our small collaboration rooms for a weekend and set up the program as a drop-in, so anyone can drop in to the photo booth all day long. We ordered two superhero backdrops to hang on either side of the room. Then I got busy with the props.
A lot of the props I made myself using superhero mask templates from online. I printed them, cut them out, laminated them to make them more sturdy and attached them to chopsticks. There are a ton of templates online, Pinterest superhero photo booth and you’ll find a bunch of printables.
I also printed out some word bubbles and superhero logos and put them on popsical sticks too.
Other than the backdrops the only thing I bought was a few generic capes from the dollar store in a variety of colors that would fit both adults and children.
Finally, I am having volunteers make a few fun props. Thor’s hammer. A big fake boulder. A “1,000” weight set.
Once everything is put together, you will want to have a volunteer in the room to make sure none of the props walk off.
I can’t wait to see how everything turns out. Hopefully, me and the little one can take a trip to the library that weekend and see how everything came out.
That’s all for now!
