GLOBAL CARDBOARD CHALLENGE!
Saturday, October 11, 2:00 p.m.
Inspired by the documentary Caine's Arcade, last year almost 86,000 participants from 46 countries took part in the Global Cardboard Challenge. This fall, we invite kids to build something amazing out of cardboard, recycled materials & imagination! And also, to experience the A-MAZE! which will be built by the Children's staff for children to explore.
Join us as we participate in this annual event, which celebrates child creativity, presented by the Imagination Foundation. The Global Cardboard Challenge gives kids the opportunity to collaborate, learn & build through creative play.
This is a FAMILY program. We encourage people of all ages to come together to imagine & create.
