In addition to the typical way of thinking about resources – renewable and nonrenewable – consider the natural, raw intellectual energy of our children. Learn about the open invitation to families and educators to join in the annual, global Cardboard Challenge. Learning if or how we recognize, value and chose to use resources is a choice. All children are natural inquirers who can change the story and transform the future.
Creative reuse and creative free play overlap in the Imagination Foundation’s Global Cardboard Challenge! The event combines recycled cardboard with artistry and design in order to make for some fantastic (and perhaps unexpected!) creations. Participation in the event is a great way for families, classes, and community groups to practice and promote creative reuse of materials and collaborative intergenerational art, and provides a great outlet for creative types of all ages to transfer fantasy designs from their heads to real life!
