The Global Cardboard Challenge Let’s Go Pleasantdale!!
The Great Cardboard Challenge is an annual event presented by the Imagination Foundation, that celebrates child creativity and the role communities can play in fostering it. This tradition began in 2012, in response to the Caine’s Arcade film. What is it?
A short documentary filmby Nirvan Mullick released in April 2012 about an amazing arcade created by then 9-year-old Caine Monroy. The only materials he used were cardboard boxes and everyday objects. The boy ran his arcade from his father's auto parts store in Los Angeles during mid-2011. Mullick was inspired to make the documentary after coming across the arcade while getting a part for his car, discovering the level of commitment, work, and thought Caine had put into the arcade, and becoming Caine's first customer. What is Caine’s Arcade
The Global Cardboard Challenge gives children an opportunity to collaborate, learn, and build the things they imagine through a simple process called Creative Play. The Challenge lets children explore their interests and passions; teaches critical thinking, resourcefulness, perseverance, teamwork and other 21st century skills; and brings communities together to foster and celebrate child creativity! Why should we be involved?
Most importantly, this is an opportunity to have fun with your kids, and maybe even get their families involved too!
This is a chance for us to participate in something on a global scale. The kids and the community get to come together, and we can open a world of possibilities to our little ones!
