You can make a pin-hole camera from cardboard (like an oatmeal box) and tin foil. You can use household items for this, but you will need to buy the right film. Then to load develop the film you'll need to make a dark room in your house.

This has pretty decent instructions: http://electronics.howstuffworks.com/camera6.htm
