McDivitt End of the Year Cardboard Box Challenge!


Before getting started, please click and watch the following video, “Cain’s Arcade 2: From a Movie to a Movement”

Your Cardboard Creation Should:

  • Be made almost entirely out of cardboard

  • Be useful or helpful to you or others

  • Be ambitious! Furniture, a helicopter, an actual house… the sky’s the limit!

    This is a pretty open challenge, which is why we can’t wait to see what you come up with! Use the Flipgrid link below to submit a video about what you made!

  • Any type of cardboard box or container (cereal box, shipping box, TV box, toothpaste, toilet paper rolls)

  • Any supplies to help shape or hold together your cardboard creation (scissors, tape, foil, glue, anything!)

Feeling Stuck? Try This First: Make A Cardboard Outfit!

  • You can make a cardboard crown by cutting a strip of cardboard long enough to go around your head, then stapling it into a ring. Add decorations!

  • Try out different shapes of hat (you can even just make a rectangle or square cardboard hat by removing one side of a box)

  • Make a pair of shoes and a belt and a backpack to match. Why not?

Now Challenge Yourself: Make Something Out Of Cardboard That… (Links below are CLICKABLE).


Enjoy this Challenge, McDivitt Stars! We can’t wait for you to share your creations with us!
