Nursery garden party

Plymouth, Devon

United Kingdom

This is an initial enquiry at this stage. I love the concept, I run 2 day nurseries and a Dads group. I feel we have scope for an event of this nature. I also help to organise a regatta event which is in June 2016. Can I have dates for this years event please – I may organise our event on the same date or free style and run on another occasion. This may be our garden party or Regatta or Dads group. I have many options!

Inviting The World To Play

The Global Cardboard Challenge began in 2012, following the overwhelming success of the short film, 'Caine's Arcade'. In 2017, we hope to surpass 1 million child participants!


Inspired by the short film, ‘Caine’s Arcade,’ the Global Cardboard Challenge is an annual event presented by the Imagination Foundation that celebrates child creativity and the role communities can play in fostering it. This September, kids of all ages are invited to build anything they can dream up using cardboard, recycled materials and imagination. Then on Saturday, October 7th, 2017, a day that commemorates the flash mob that made Caine's day in the short film, communities come together and play!


Here are a few resources to help you host an awesome Cardboard Challenge.
