Global Cardboard Challenge

Join us for this year's Global Cardboard Challenge as the Imagination Foundation teams up with The Boxtrolls!  
 
The Boxtrolls are a mischievous band of tinkerers who live in a a subterranean community underneath the cobblestoned streets of Cheesebridge. They’re fun, quirky and have a knack for making clothes, gadgets and gizmos out of cardboard, other people’s trash, and of course, their imaginations.  
 
Join us and spend time creating your own clothes, gadgets and gizmos out of cardboard and other supplied materials.  We'll share our creations and then enjoy a movie.  Participants will vote on another Laika feature film to watch--Coraline or Paranorman!  We'll have a raffle, treats & FUN!
 

Please sign-up so we know how many builders to expect!
