Making Silly Family Pictures with Wipe Off Photo Frames

Since seeing the post Wipe Off Menu Boards, I had the thought that it would be fun to do pretty much the same thing with family photos. We’re drawing onto frames with wipe off markers, creating silly family photos.

Supplies for Wipe Off Picture Frames:

  • glass or plastic picture frame, any size or shape – I like the kind with a magnet back, so I can hang them on my fridge
  • wipe off dry erase markers
  • tissues
  • printed out family photos

1. Place in your photo.
2. Using your dry erase markers, draw on a funny picture.
3. Wipe off the drawings with a tissue and start over.

Here’s a photo of my husband and I a few years back. We have wings, we’re love birds, and we’re at the beach.

We even took some of our friends photos that came from Christmas cards and gave them a new look. Here’s the No Biggie family.

These are way to much fun with so many ways to make them silly. We keep the frames on the fridge with the markers nearby so we can keep creating new and crazy drawings.


  1. very clever idea. I’ve always wondered what my husband would look like with a cool mustache (and my one-year old son too for that matter). :)

  2. i love this idea! my daughter is just hitting the age where she might actually be able to play along. but not much can stop her dad and i from turning our friends’ holiday cards into something magical.

  3. This is super fun and I could see it being really useful if a child is feeling upset with a parent or sibling by letting them get their feelings out by scribbling all over their face :)

  4. Love this idea! My kids are obsessed with wipe off boards–I can just picture the creativity they come up with this! Thank you!
