Fun event in West Seattle on October 6th – IF a venue is found!

September 28, 2012 at 10:50 am | In West Seattle news, WS culture/arts | 8 Comments

Heard about the Caine’s Arcade Cardboard Challenge (inspired by the now-famous video above)? West Seattleite Marie, who publishes Make and Takes, is hosting one as part of the worldwide event on Saturday, October 6th, but needs to find a venue! She says:

The location would need to be indoors and large enough to host up to 30-40 people with room for cardboard creations, multiple tables preferred. Children, and adults, will bring in their pre-made cardboard creations to display and for others to play with, cardboard-arcade style. This event is also in need of cardboard, scissors and tape donations as well, for those who want to create while they are there. If you have any information that would help, please e-mail Marie at

If she gets a place set up for 10/6, we’ll add a followup with where you can go to be part of it!


  1. What about the west seattle senior center? Or Youngstown Cultural Center? Any other schools or churches?

  2. That was awesome and I hope we can get this set up. My husband and son make cardboard cars all the time. My son will dig this for sure!

  7. The Kenney! Their community rooms are absolutely beautiful. The residents would get a kick out of this and The Kenney is great about including the community and opening their doors for such an event.

  8. I watched this a second time with my husband and son and then watched the other movie about how they have created a foundation to get this into schools. This is truly amazing and I’m so inspired – I sure hope we can get a cardboard challenge going here!
