Canstruction L.A.

Do you have a little engineer in your family? Do you have a kid who loves to build things? A lego-holic? Maybe a kid that loves to stack things? If so I have the perfect event for you. It’s called “Canstruction LA”. Teams of architects, designers, builders, and engineers design and create huge structures made out of cans of food. Imagine how cool it would be for a little one to experience this. After the exhibit the cans are donated to the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank.
