Have you heard of Caine’s Arcade? If you haven’t yet seen the inspirational short film about a 9-year-old boy from Los Angeles and his cardboard arcade, watch it here:
So, on Saturday, Oct. 6, the Imagination Foundation will launch by hosting the first annual Global Cardboard Challenge. The Challenge will bring together the young and the young at heart from all over the world to build, play and celebrate creativity and community as thousands, together, use cardboard to build whatever they can imagine. Basically, during the first week of October (or on Oct. 6), kids across the globe will use cardboard and other recycled materials to build a cardboard creation — an arcade, a robot, a plane … whatever they want — and share them with each other.
Check out the new “Caine’s Arcade 2″ follow-up video, capturing some of the magic of the global phenomenon, here:
Help us spread the word, organize an event, attend an event in your area or build a cardboard creation yourself! Visit www.cardboardchallenge.com for more information on how to participate and join the thousands of others all over the world in a day of play!
Please share with us photos or stories from your cardboard creations on our Facebook page at ReadySetGrowLA!
