Throw an awesome #DisneyKids Preschool Playdate with our quick and easy DIY photo booth that actually prints out photo strips for your guests!
My boys were on spring break last week, so we threw a super fun #DisneyKids playdate for some of our favorite preschoolers and their siblings.
We kept our party table simple and clean so that the kids would have lots of room to spread out and eat their goodies. We served pizza and fruit for lunch, followed by a couple of special Mickey Mouse shaped treats for dessert.
I used our mini Mickey waffle maker to bake some Mickey brownies, and the kids went crazy over them!
The boys helped to make these super cute Mickey Mouse shaped pretzel treats, and the kids LOVED these too! Simply place a candy melt on top of a square pretzel snap, and pop it in the oven for about 3 minutes at 200 degrees until the candy starts to melt. Top it with classic and mini M&M’s to make Mickey – easy peasy!
I used colored cardstock to make a few Disney themed photo props – Mickey ears, Minnie ears, Donald’s hat, and Goofy’s hat/ears.
I set up a photo booth prop table and added a few more dress-up items that we had in the boys’ costume trunk – white gloves, heart sunglasses, bandannas, a few more paper photo props, and some awesome reversible paper pirate hat/princess crowns that Disney sent to us. My ten-year-old also made some conversation/thought bubbles as well, and they ended up being a big hit!
For the photo background, I used a roll of red paper and quickly added some polka dots with white paint.
The little kids had a blast taking silly photos, and it wasn’t long before their older siblings joined in!
The coolest part about our photo booth is that it printed out real photo strips thanks to the new HP photo strips and their mobile Pocketbooth photo booth app (download code included in the pack of photo strips). Just open up the app on your smart phone, use the app to take photos, and send the pictures straight to the printer! Each 5×7 sheet of paper prints 3 photo strips, so it’s super easy to send your guests home with a fun memento of the good time they had! The photo strips are available exclusively at Shindigz.com, and I highly recommend them for your next party!
We also sent everyone home with a Disney Junior drawstring backpack bag, The Lion Guard poster and temporary tattoos, Kilimanjaro safari animals (packaged in Disney Frozen Glad zipper bags!), Disney bubbles, light-up Mickey Mouse Clubhouse balloons, and a couple of other goodies provided by Disney. The kids loved it all!
We had such a fun preschool playdate party, and the highlight was definitely the photo booth! I see lots more photo booth fun in our future with the new HP photo strips and Pocketbooth app!
