Strut Your stuff

Stand out from the crowd

Why Play This Way?

Fashion is a powerful form of self-expression, especially as tiny humans often have limited control over their choices. This fun & silly activity will help children explore how they feel when wearing certain things and how they can use clothing to show who they are. Staying true to this outward expression of their authentic selves will lead to increased social & emotional well-being, helping your little one step into the world with confidence and fearlessness.

SET THE STAGE FOR PLAY: 2 Minutes

Adult Participation: Optional

Ready

  • One or more fashion models (Hint: Look in the mirror!)

  • A camera or phone (you’re going to want documentation)

SET

  • Gather an armful of clothing & accessories from around the house. Anything goes! Grab neckties, winter boots, bathing suits, or even something from your favorite costume! 

  • In addition to your go-to wardrobe items, think outside the box and find some “non-clothing” items to turn into wearables.

    → Wear a shoebox as a hat

    → Transform the dog’s collar into a fashionable charm bracelet. 

    → Make a necklace using segments of a paper towel tube.

PLAY!

  • Lay out your fashion items so you can easily style each of your looks. 

  • Put on each outfit and strut your stuff on the catwalk!

  • Make your runway experience glamorous by pressing play on this Catwalk Confidence Playlist

  • Assign a photographer to snap pics of your fashion debut (and share @lmnoplaynyc).

  • Let each outfit inspire a new “walk” that expresses your unique style and personality. 

  • After the show, see if there are elements of your various looks that you want to incorporate into your everyday style.

Just like Odd Dog, don’t be afraid to stand out from the crowd!
