Students at Reyes Elementary School in Merced recently created a “cardboard arcade” which was enjoyed by other students at the school.
Children and their teachers took part in the school’s annual cardboard challenge. They used recycled boxes and other discarded items to create unique objects. Many of the students created cardboard games. Kids were able to play skee-ball, mini soccer and bowling games which were set up as an arcade in the school’s multipurpose room.
Classmates were invited and they even won prizes.
“It’s neat to see the creativity of our students and also how they work together as a team,” said principal Aaron Alexander.
The project also inspired other ideas. Other students built houses that were resistant to earthquakes. Cardboard animals, robots and puppets were also made.
