20 People Recreated Their Childhood Photos, and the Whole Internet Liked Them

We all have quirky childhood photos that take us way back. And one of the best Internet trends of late has probably been childhood photo recreations. These photos are the perfect way to highlight the bond that you have with your family, and the entire idea is based on recreating a retro picture with all the members participating again.

Bright Side loves this kind of positive internet trend, and here we compiled 20 of the most creative childhood re-enactments that’ll hopefully take you back to the good ol’ days.

1. Recreated my mom’s favorite photo of us for Mother’s Day.

2. Me holding on to my girl at my high school graduation in 2002. I’m holding on to her even tighter at hers in 2020. 😭

3. My siblings and I being goofy (1995 vs 2013)
