Fantasy Photos

The Fantasy Photo project.
The Fantasy Photo project.

These Fantasy Photos tell a fictional story with real pictures. With this photo craft, you'll create adventure in which you play all the parts of the story.

If you've always wanted to take a safari, now's your chance -- you can even be the animals you see on your trip.

What You'll Need:

  • Camera
  • Color film
  • Blunt scissors
  • Craft glue
  • Poster board
  • Markers

Step 1: Plan a setting for your story. Think of a scene where there are lots of people doing different things, such as a circus or a football game.

Step 2: Have a family member or friend take several pictures of you dressed as the different parts of the story. For the circus, pose as a ringmaster, an acrobat, a clown, and even a lion. Dress up in costumes to fit the roles.

Step 3: When the film is developed, cut your pictures out and glue them on a piece of poster board. Draw a circus scene with three rings, a trapeze, balls to juggle, a lion, and more.

Don't be afraid to be silly! If you're setting your Fantasy Photos in a bowling alley, you can even be the bowling ball and bowling pins. Remember, this is your Fantasy Photo, so let your imagination do the work.

Any of the characters in your Fantasy Photos can be used in the photo craft on the next page, too.
