Fact: 95% of kids and cats prefer empty boxes over toys.

Waterfall Arts famous All Ages Art Happening, “CBARF: Cardboard Boxes Are Really Fun!” is coming again this January. We’re back at the Waldo County YMCA gymnasium for our 2023 build-a-thon!

The whole community is invited to bring a roll of packing tape and take to our mountain of cardboard boxes to build… well, whatever they like! Afterward, participants smash it all down and the wreckage is sent back to the transfer station to be recycled.

The gym will have “streets” taped off and parties will claim some well-spaced “property” to work on after grabbing boxes to use for building.

All children must be accompanied by an adult – they will need a hand with the tape! (It is recommended that builders bring their own packing tape.)

Free, all ages. Note: This event is taking place at the Waldo County YMCA.

About All Ages Art Happenings:
