I’m posting about this a bit late, I’m afraid. I missed the boat on the Global Cardboard Challenge on October 6th. But, I still think it’s worth your while to view the video, which is a sequel to the Caine’s Arcade video. And, there is no saying that you can’t organize your own Cardboard Challenge in your classroom or school on whatever day you like. Imagination Foundation offers supporting materials, and even has some curriculum aligned with the original Caine’s Arcade video. The mission of the Imagination Foundation is to “find, foster, and fund creativity and entrepreneurship in kids.” It’s a relatively new site, but it looks like it has a lot of potential for engaging kids in re-connecting with good old-fashioned imaginative play. And, if you are interested in sponsoring your own “Day of Play” in your neck of the woods, you might want to take a look at Kelly Tenkely’s description of such a day recently held at her school, Anastasis Academy.
