Make it work, people. Here is a fun challenge for fashion-crazed tweens and fans of Lifetime’s Project Runway.
Host your own “Renewable Project Runway” competition, incorporating only used/recycled clothing, blankets or sheets, items from the recycling bin (newspapers, rinsed cans and bottles, lids, cardboard cereal boxes, etc.), masking tape, scissors and whole lot of imagination.
Each competitor designs and models his or her own creation (or have teams of two work together!)—the sky is the limit for this earth-friendly challenge.
Designate moms and dads to assume the roles of Heidi Klum, Tim Gunn, Michael Kors and Nina Garcia—and a few celebrity judges, of course, dahlings! Award prizes for Most Chic, Cutest, Most Outrageous, Funniest—and a say Auf Wiedersehen to those who just can’t make it work!

$1 Kids Movies at AMC All Summer! June 3, 2009
Calling all moms and dads! Clear your Wednesday mornings because AMC Summer MovieCamp is inviting families to theatres to enjoy excellent children’s movies all summer long for only a buck! The best part? All admission and concessions proceeds (excluding applicable taxes and operating costs) from AMC Summer MovieCamp will benefit Variety – The Children’s Charity and the Will Rogers Institute.
Families, schools and organizations alike are invited to see great kids’ movies during AMC Summer MovieCamp.
Everyone wins! (Bonus: AMC is a great place to cool off. We don’t have AC in our home, so often a trip to the movie theatre promises a welcome respite from the sweltering summer heat!)
Available at select AMC theatres, this fun-filled program brings you:
- $1 movies from June 17 – August 5
- Shows starting at 10:00 a.m. every Wednesday
- Great field trip opportunities – groups can purchase tickets one week in advance starting June 10 at the box office or online at participating theatres
