Fourth Annual Cardboard Arcade at Albany Avenue Elementary School

Fifth-grade students at Albany Avenue Elementary School transformed their gym into a colorful cardboard arcade yesterday.

This was the fourth year for the event, originally inspired by a YouTube video called Caine’s Arcade, about a nine-year-old Los Angeles boy named Caine Monroy, who spent his entire 2012 summer vacation dreaming and building an intricate DIY arcade using cardboard boxes from his dad’s auto parts store.

The young students began working on their games a few months ago with a brainstorming session, then created, decorated, and named their games for the big event.

Every grade was given a time to visit the arcade and each student received a fun pass to play five games. A fun time was had by all!
