A Day of Play for Global Cardboard Challenge, October 7, 11 - 2

Join us on Saturday, October 7th in the Twirl courtyard from 11am - 2pm for a day of creative play! We'll have cardboard, recyclables and all the materials you need to build whatever you dream up!

The Global Cardboard Challenge was inspired by a kid called Caine who built an arcade entirely out of cardboard in his dad's garage. Watch his viral video here: http://cainesarcade.com/2012/04/caines-arcade-short-film/

Start thinking now of ingenious ways you can create something awesome out of cardboard. Then join us on October 7th and get creative! Work on your own or as part of a group. Take part in our special challenge and come up with ideas for a new play feature... for the Twirl courtyard, a school playground or another community space. Let's see if we can turn someone's brilliant idea in to a real-life community project.

Twirl was recently named a Chapter Leader of imagination.org, organizers of the Global Cardboard Challenge. Stay tuned for other creative play projects coming soon!
