The Temple City Unified School District invites everyone to join them in Caine’s Cardboard Arcade Challenge!
As a team building activity, the District’s Leadership Team kicked off the TCUSD Challenge on September 19. Five teams participated in the challenge; inventions were recognized for Most Artistic, Most Creative, Most Animated, Most Technical, and Most Fun!
Temple City High School’s Art Department was next to unveil their cardboard creations at Back-to-School Night on September 24. La Rosa Elementary School
will spotlight their inventions on October 4 and Longden Elementary School on October 5.
Caine’s Arcade Challenge began when 9-year-old Caine spent his summer vacation building an elaborate DIY cardboard arcade inside his dad’s used auto parts store and asked people to play. The entire summer went by and Caine had yet to have a single customer until one day a filmmaker stopped to buy a door handle for his car and became Caine’s first customer. What happened next was magic . . . watch the movie that launched a movement to foster imagination and creativity in kids everywhere at http://cainesarcade.com.
The first Global Cardboard Challenge was held in 2012 with over 270 events in
41 countries raising funds for various causes while celebrating kid creativity and community. The second Global Cardboard Challenge will be even bigger with another global Day of Play on October 5, 2013. Join TCUSD and take the challenge! Join a movement to foster creative play in kids worldwide!
