The 4th Annual Global Cardboard Challenge

Inspired by the short film, ‘Caine’s Arcade’, the Global Cardboard Challenge is an annual event presented by the Imagination Foundation to celebrate child creativity and the role communities can play in fostering it. Every year around September, kids of all ages are invited to build anything they can dream up using cardboard, recycled materials and imagination. Then in October communities come together to play!

You can still join in with a Global Cardboard Challenge themed event!

Register your event here to receive resources and support from Imagination Foundation.

With Makedo tools you can build anything - large, small even moving creations. It's easy, fast, neat and sturdy construction.

All our parts are reusable too so you can build over and over again. Learn more here.
