Setup

1. Have the game leader divide the group into evenly numbered Fashion teams. It's best to have no more than 4 people per team.
2. Provide each team with similar amount of Fashion Materials. (T.P., trash bags, plastic, old scarves, old hats, paper towel tubs, etc.)
3. Ask the teams to spread out far enough, that they have space to create their designs. About 5+ feet between them.
4. The game leader should have a timer ready, to keep track of time.

How to Play

1. Prior to the timer starting, each team needs to select one of their members to be the "model." This person will wear/model the fashion piece down the "runway" at the end of the game to determine the winner.
2. Once each team has selected their model, the game leader gives the signal to begin fashion construction!
3. Teams should have about 10 minutes to construct the runway attire. Remind them that accessorizing is a fantastic way to accent any outfit! Be creative!
4. The should be constructing the outfit on the model, as the materials used are not sturdy enough to come on and off in one piece.
5. When time is up, each design team, must stop dressing their model and sit down for the fashion show.
6. The models will line up and one by one, walk down the "runway" strutting their new fashions for a prize.
7. The team with the best fashion designs wins!

Variations

1. Determining the winner can occur through a variety of ways. All teams can applaud for which they like the best, teams can rank each other in a voting forum, or an outsider can select.
