Runway for Research

We are getting INvolved with Runway for Research! Have you heard of it? It is a volunteer organization committed to raising funds to help cure childhood cancer!

The Art Institute of Tucson is teaming up with Tee Up For Tots to produce the Third Annual Runway for Research Fashion Show benefiting the pediatric cancer research unit of The Steele Children's Research Center at UMC.

This year we are aiming to have 60 kids in the show who have, or have had, cancer and we are also Including their amazing siblings!

The theme will revolve around our Runway Stars! So how do we make every single child feel special?! How do we create the space of Hollywood Glamour that is Kid Friendly?!

Idea #1: Popcorn Bar
with all kinds of goodies, and toppings!

Idea #2: Glamorous Hollywood Candy Jewelry
Yum! Kids can make their own or have the designers do it for them! bling!

Idea#3: Walk of fame, Hand Molds
Just like real Hollywood stars! And we can line up the Paparazzi to take their pics!

INstead of Buying the mold, we can Make it!!! Although it might take a bit longer..but it's an option....
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/3 cup cornstarch
  • 1/2 cup salt
  • 1/3 cup warm water
  • container/mold to fit hands
  • pencil to write in the dough
How to:
  • mix ingredients and add flour until it becomes a stiff dough
  • dust the inside of the mold (so nothing sticks)
  • put mix into mold
  • press hands into mold
  • use pencil to write a message or name or date
  • add beads, jewels, glitter, etc.
  • allow 48 hours for the clay to dry before removing it from the mold
Once dry, the kids can paint it at home!

But if that's too much, then we can just do Paint on board!
