Followup: Site chosen for West Seattle Cardboard Challenge

Last Friday, we shared a request from Marie, who publishes Make and Takes – she was looking for a venue to hold a Caine’s Arcade Cardboard Challenge this Saturday (October 6th). Thanks to everybody’s help, she found one – The Kenney (WSB sponsor; 7125 Fauntleroy Way SW). For details of what’ll happen there 11 am-2 pm Saturday, and to RSVP, go here. And/or click ahead for more details from Marie:

Please bring in your pre-made cardboard creations to share with others. There will be tables and floor space available for display. Your creations can be an arcade game of some sort, to resemble Caine’s Arcade, or it can be something else fun like a boat or robot, etc. It can be something people can play with or simply come to view. There might even be a small candy prize if you win something at one of the cardboard games!

There will also be an area for making cardboard creations right on the spot to display or take home with you. Cardboard, scissors, and tape will be provided.

Come join in the fun and celebrate in this day of cardboard creations and encourage imagination in others. And make sure to bring in a couple of dollars to donate toward the Imagination Foundation.

Questions, please e-mail Marie of Make and Takes at
