Why a cardboard city? 

We want to celebrate National Children’s Week by encouraging our children and families to build a beautiful, unique and colourful city using cardboard boxes. This way we can inspire them to be involved in ‘building’ our city and working with each other right from the start! The cardboard city is also an adventure into the world of recycling and is an easy for families to be creative!
