So we’ve been cooped up inside for about 56389 days, right? At least that’s what it feels like! I know I’m not alone in having a child who has now reached the extreme boredom limit. I am constantly nagged about “how bored” she is, even though there is SO MUCH TO DO AND PLAY WITH in this apartment. If you follow us on Instagram, then you know that crafting is my passion, so I was uber excited to hear about a brand new game show for kids called CRAFTOPIA!
Let me introduce you to Craftopia:
Craftopia is an epic kids crafting competition show hosted and executive produced by YouTube influencer Lauren Riihimaki aka (LaurDIY). Creating and demonstrating crafts to over 8.9 million subscribers on her YouTube channel, LaurDIY has been deemed the “millennial Martha Stewart” by Forbes. On Craftopia, 9 to 15-year old contestants put their imaginations to the test and make their crafting dreams come true in a magical studio. After racing to fill up their carts with inspiring materials from the studio “store,” crafters meet larger-than-life challenges, making truly inventive and amazing creations in order to take home the ‘Craftrophia.’
I passed my love of crafting to my daughter so we both get excited to see shows geared towards things we love. This game show will give kids new ideas that they’ll want to recreate, which will hopefully make their quarantine boredom disappear!
The Show Premieres tonight, May 27th on HBO Max!
