CARDBOARD CHALLENGE DAY

Inspired by the short film, ‘Caine’s Arcade,’ the Cardboard Challenge was an event presented by the Imagination Foundation and Tiffany Tupps that celebrates child creativity and the role communities can play in fostering it. This October, kids of all ages were invited to build anything they can dream up using cardboard, recycled materials and imagination. Then on Thursday, October 6th, 2016, teachers, parents and communities all came together and played!  Check out pictures of what our kindergarten through 5th grade student at Arkansas Elementary created!
