Cardboard arcade a hit with kids

Rex Kingsbury’s enrichment class students at Prairie Wind Middle School recently made more than 125 arcade games out of boxes and other recycled materials after hearing the story of Caine Monroy.

Caine built his own elaborate arcade with cardboard boxes when he was 9 years old.

Students in kindergarten through sixth grade paid a $1 admission to play as many games as they could.

In all, the arcade raised about $400 for the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
