12 Times Kids Hilariously Dressed Themselves for Picture Day


Usually on school picture day, you want your child to look their best. You cut their hair, dress them in that itchy shirt they hate, and tell them to not even think of making a funny face. But the kids in these funny school photos don’t want to be told what to do. They’re dressed in the clothes they want to wear — and it’s priceless.

From proudly donning a wild hair accessory to secretly sneaking in a costume to put on at the last minute, these kids wanted to be sure they left their mark on school picture day. With their equally creative and mischievous ways, we’re pretty sure it’s hard for anyone at their school to forget about the school pictures — much to the parents’ dismay!

But sometimes, hilariously enough, it was actually the kids’ parents who were responsible for an oops on their child’s picture day. Raise your hand if you’ve ever forgotten that it was school picture day, or even mixed up picture day with another (hysterically) wrong themed clothing day. Don’t be shy; others have been there, too, and we have the photos to prove it!

While it might be embarrassing and even frustrating at the time you receive the dreaded image in the mail, we all have to admit that years down the line, these crazy school photos are pretty darn hilarious. And the best part? You’ll be able to use these funny school photos to poke some good-natured fun at your kids once they get old enough to realize the ridiculousness of some of their outfits. Just think of it as having a leg up when their future husband or wife asks to see photos from “way back when.”
