Adventure Sandwich: a new children's series about the power of the imagination. Check out our Kickstarter to find out more!
 
Adventure Sandwich had an absolute BLAST at this year's Chicago Toy and Game Fair (ChiTAG)! Watch in super-fast-motion as we build our Cardboard Playground, let it grow and shift and change, and then shrink it back down to a few folded boxes.


And stay tuned for more opportunities to watch, listen to, or play with Adventure Sandwich LIVE! More details coming soon regarding the Chicago International Puppetry Festival in January and the Museum of Contemporary Art's Family Day: Double in February! 
 
 
Join us downtown this Friday for a performance brought to you by the Living Loop performing arts festival. We're thrilled to be a part of this ongoing series, which is livening up the loop every Friday at noon throughout the summer. Our performance is at Pritzker Park (Van Buren & State), 12pm on Friday the 20th. Join us and witness an Elephone talking on the telephant (wait, is that right?), a story of a teacup and a whale, floating jellyfish, a herd of clouds, and much more. We're pumped! 
 
 
Come hang out with Curtis the Cloudboy, some Jellyfish, and a whole bunch of Imaginnaise 
this Sunday at 1:45 in downtown Chicago. We're looking forward to being a part of the 30th Anniversary Printer's Row Lit Fest, and would love to see your smiling faces there! 
 
 
THANK YOU to everyone who came out to the Poetry Foundation for Children's Poetry Day. We had a wonderful time singing about jellyfish, elephants, & other subjects of children's poems. 
Missed it? Have no fear! Adventure Sandwich will be at the Printer's Row Lit Fest June 8th
In the meantime, enjoy this: another incredible example of cardboard's transformative powers
 
 
Next Saturday, join Moira Funbuttons and the Adventure Sandwich band as they perform music based on poems selected for the Poetry Foundation's Children's Poetry Day celebration! 
The event starts at 10am, and we're set to begin at 11am. We simply cannot wait. WE CAN'T! Patience is difficult. Anyway, come along and join in the fun!

Come out and play next weekend at the Chicago Toy and Game Fair to create crafty concoctions and play games with Moira Funbuttons in Adventure Sandwich's Creation Station

Adventure Sandwich will be hanging out all weekend and participating in the World's Largest Playdate Sunday afternoon. When we say world's largest, we mean it—if all goes according to plan, we'll all end up in the Guinness Book of World Records

Want to help out? Send us a message at adventuresandwich@gmail.com to volunteer. We need extra hands to help set up the Creation Station, to make our crafts extra creative, and to add more fun to the playdate! Sounds like fun, eh? We agree! So volunteer or simply stop on by! November 23rd-24th at Navy Pier.

This past Saturday, Adventure Sandwich teamed up with CivicLab & Young Chicago Computer Artists & Engineers for the annual Global Cardboard Challenge. What a blast! Check out some pictures from the day to get a peak at the many incredible cardboard creations, including: a squirrel costume, a house, a castle (complete with working drawbridge), a pair of giant shoes, a skyscraper, an oversized bug-trap, a robot with a heart, and more. 

Give you any ideas for your Halloween costume? Huzzah! Because Moira Funbuttons will be the emcee for this year's annual Halloween Bash at Schubas, featuring Future Hits & Kite Collective

Yet another fun event we're looking forward to--join us! Show off your cool home-made costume in the costume contest, dance with Moira Funbuttons, and have as much fun as possible!

We're VERY excited to be teaming up with the Young Chicago Computer Artists + Engineers for the Cardboard Challenge this Saturday, October 5th, 1-4pm

Join us at the Civic Lab to help us transform some of the props, set pieces, and scraps we can no longer use into the coolest robot or spaceship or pony or monster or canoe or ANYTHING else you can imagine
                                                     
                                          We can't wait!

Join us on October 5th at 1pm as we turn some of our old cardboard props and set pieces into newly imagined costumes and more. 


We'll be one of HUNDREDS of fabulous cardboard-encrusted organizations across the world participating in this year's Global Cardboard Challenge. Find out more about our event and others HERE

THEN show off your cardboard costume pieces October 26th at the annual Schuba's Halloween kids' bash, featuring our own Moira Funbuttons, Future Hits, & Kite Collective. More details to come! 

 
 
OK, so maybe we're exaggerating a little. There's no way to tell just yet if the talent behind The Adventures of Pete & Pete, Ren & Stimpy, Double Dare, and other 90's-era-Nickelodeon shows will actually hang out. But still! We're thrilled to announce that Moira Funbuttons (a.k.a. Lily Emerson) has been invited to attend the super-exciting-dork-out-nostalgia-explosion that is the launch event for Slimed! An Oral History of Nickelodeon's Golden AgeShe can't wait to hear the panel speak, or to make all of her kids-TV-heroes become her new friends. 
Again, we may be hoping for just a little too much here. We can't help it. We're excited! 
Check out the event HERE if you'd like to join Moira in the audience, learn more about who's coming on this Facebook page, and check out this article in the Village Voice for a sneak preview of the book itself.
