First grade friends "getting their build on"!
Inspired by the video Caine's Arcade, and one of this year's Ladybug Book Award nominees - What to Do With a Box by Jane Yolen, we here in the library decided to take on imagination.org's Global Cardboard Challenge! For 2 days last week, over 400 kids came through our library which had been transformed into a creative building space. They came to build, cooperate, collaborate and challenge their minds and motor skills in an "out of the box" creative way! Some teachers were even brave enough to take on the challenge within their own classrooms. We had robots, airplanes, houses, arcade games, restaurants, Batmobiles and more all throughout our space! Everyone had so much fun and we appreciate the donations of tape and cardboard from teachers and the community. Kids are already asking when we can do it again!
