Are crafting dates a thing? We’d always joke around the Googly HQ about how when we grow old, we’d be one of those tita groups in cafes and restaurants bringing a bunch of arts and craft supplies. 😂 So when Craft Easy asked us if we would want to host one with some of our readers, we had to say yes!
We started off with DIY pizza made out of Craft Easy foam. What we love about this material is that it’s sturdy enough around kids and also pretty waterproof. They work well with glue gun (which was surprising since we thought they’d melt against the heat but they didn’t) but if you have kids around, double-sided tape works like a charm! You can even transform your crafts into puffy stickers with it. Yahoo!
PS. Check out Riley 👦! He picked up one of the boxes from our trays and turned it into a pizza box before proceeding to take his pizza to the oven (table drawers) and serving it to the participants.
Arlene, one of the winners and a long-time Googly reader, brought her niece Princess who made pizza pie “faces” out of the foam cutouts. We just love how children’s creativity can run free!
We then proceeded to make some DIY crowns! These would be a great alternative to party hats for children’s (or kids’-at-heart) parties. 🎉

Participants also got to try out the Craft Easy Liquid Chalk Markers and Chalkboard Sticker Sheets! The markers dry fast and they can even be used on glass and mirror surfaces *ehem Riley’s room*. Plus, we love how bright and pigmented the colors are. Where would you want to use them?

Lastly, we made some felt animals and stuffed toys! Felt is so easy to handle and sew together. It’s also sturdy enough to hold some stuffing. Plus, glue gun holds it well too for those who don’t like to sew. 😊 What felt plushie would you guys want to make next?
