THE BOXTROLLS have partnered with Imagination Foundation to host a Boxtrolls Cardboard Challenge Contest this Sunday at Oakland Mall. Children will be building crafts inspired by the new movie THE BOXTROLLS and using cardboard boxes and recycled materials as their main source – just like the Boxtrolls themselves do in their amazing world. Participants will be entered to win a “What’s in the Box” themed prize pack at the event which includes a Xbox One Console & a Box pizza package from Buddy’s Pizza. Contestants who share their creations on Twitter or Instagram by tagging the hashtag #TheBoxtrollsCC are eligible to enter for the “Imagination Box” Grand Prize which includes an Applie iMac, an iPad Air, Microsoft Office, The Print Shop and Kid Pix Softwares, a $500 gift card, and a $1000 Michaels Arts & Crafts gift card.

About The Boxtrolls
Being released nationwide by Focus Features on Friday, September 26th, The Boxtrolls ( is the all-new family event movie from LAIKA, the creators of Coraline and ParaNorman, that introduces audiences to a new breed of family – The Boxtrolls, a community of quirky, mischievous creatures who have lovingly raised a human boy named Eggs (voiced by Isaac Hempstead Wright of Game of Thrones) in the amazing cavernous home they’ve built beneath the streets of Cheesebridge. When the town’s villain, Archibald Snatcher (Academy Award winner Ben Kingsley), comes up with a plot to get rid of the Boxtrolls, Eggs decides to venture above ground, “into the light,” where he meets and teams up with fabulously feisty Winnie (Elle Fanning of Maleficent). Together, they devise a daring plan to save Eggs’ family. Based upon the book Here Be Monsters, by Alan Snow, The Boxtrolls is directed by Anthony Stacchi and Graham Annable and is MPAA-rated PG.

Ann Arbor with Kids is your go-to source for Ann Arbor Family Fun. It got its start in an activity list that I was compiling for the playgroup I ran at our church. When my daughter started preschool, the other moms were thrilled to hear about my list. I decided to take the list public in 2009.
