How to play The fashion show game?
Here’s how to play: The moderator has the kids work in small groups to construct a complete outfit, which could include a hat, blouse or shirt, pants or skirt, jacket or sweater, shoes or boots, etc. The groups then selects one “model” to stand up and, along with the design team, describe what he or she is wearing to the other groups. Make sure the children focus on details. Is there a feather or a flower in the hat? What color is the belt? Is the shirt a button-up or a pullover? What color is it? What type of hat? Cowboy hat? What kind of shoes? Tennis shoes? At the end of the Fashion Show, go through each different outfit and pick a winner. Or not!
You can also have a real fashion show by providing the kids with all kinds of clothes and fun accessories. There will be no costume design phase here. The children will use what is available to them. Everyone will have to dress up and find an outfit to participate in the parade.
You can give the parade a theme:
- the funniest outfit
- the most chic outfit
- the ugliest outfit
- a princess outfit
- a rock star outfit…
Then, organize a real fashion show where each child will do his show… You can set up a real jury to choose the winner or each child will have to vote for the outfit he prefers except his own…
