Throwing a Photo Party for Teens
Hubby is a youth minister and has events for the youth group often. Yesterday, he threw a big area wide event for our youth group and five other churches. Over 80 teens and pre-teens joined together to eat, worship, and have fun together! Events like this are always a huge undertaking, but so much fun and well worth it. I received a great StickAPic party supply box around the time he was planning the event, so we planned a fun photo party for the teens! In the party box was HP ink, HP social media snapshots sticky photo paper, glue, decorations, plates, napkins, snacks, craft supplies and embellishments, and a Michael's gift card for purchasing extra craft supplies.
At first, I was not sure that the teens would be up for this idea, but it turned out great and they LOVED it! I mean really, what teen doesn't love taking pictures? The theme of the night was "Not Alone," about how even when we aren't with anyone, God is with us. So the instructions were simple…find a friend or more and I'll take your picture for you. (No selfies!) We got a few props, which some used and some didn't:
A friend made a vibrant backdrop out of PVC pipe, colored tablecloths, and decorations:
