How to Tell People You're Expecting a Baby





Introduction: How to Tell People You're Expecting a Baby

Hi there! In this instructable I'll show you a fun and creative way to tell your friends and family that your expecting a baby. You'll need a camera with a customizable timer and a tripod. First you gather everyone up for a family picture and instead of taking one picture you set the camera to take 10 pictures. You drop the big news after the first picture is taken and the camera will capture everyones reaction. If you decide to break the news this way upload the video and send me the link! I'd love to see how it came out! Let me know if you think of any other fun ways to drop the big news in the comments below.
