A Trip to the Mall



Headed to the mall for a short 
shopping trip and saw these 
amazing structures! "Canstruction 
Kansas City" arrived early in
February and will leave in early 
March. All of the structures are
constructed with canned goods 
and non-perishable items.





Fifteen teams of architects, 
engineers and contractors are
competing against each other to 
build their structures which are
built on site. They are roped off 
to protect them from getting 
knocked down. 
This entry resembles a shuttlecock,
there are three on the lawn of the 
Nelson Art Museum. They are very 
popular with museum visitors.





When the competition ends, all 
of the food will be donated to 
Harvester's Food Pantry and in 
turn given to families in need.
This entry's theme is Wizard of Oz.





Each entry is judged and then the
winners are awarded. Over 1,000
plus cans and boxes are used for
each entry!
Of course, we have to have Kansas 
City Royals themed entries. Here 
we have a ball cap.





This entry resembles the score-
board at Royals stadium. So
cool!




This is the coolest fountain I have
ever seen! Kansas City is called 
"The City of Fountains". This 
one is modeled after the actual
one on The 
Country Club Plaza. 
The builders were awarded with 
the "Structural Integrity Award."





Last but not least---A cow.
There is BBQ sauce bottles 
on the floor. We do love our 
BBQ here in KC.

Lots of fun wandering around 
looking at the creativity of others.

This is a great way for our local
food pantry to stock up on much 
needed food donations!
