#TheBoxtrollsCC  #TheBoxtrolls

I love any movie, foundation or person who helps support the imagination and success of children. The Imagination Foundation is teaming with The Boxtrolls movie, releasing September 26, 2014, to find, foster and fund creativity and entrepreneurship in children around the world. In the Boxtrolls Cardboard Challenge, kids can create and build crafts inspired by the movie, using cardboard boxes as the main resource – just like the Boxtrolls themselves do.  This is SO MUCH FUN to do with kids!

The partnership has two parts to it!  The first is a contest encouraging kids to create their own crafts out of cardboard boxes for a chance to win prizing. Secondly, there will be events hosted across the country, where participants can attend and win “What’s in the Box?” themed packages at hosted events. Check out the event times and places below and get more information on the Imagination Foundation Web page
