Burgers, Daisys and Moms - oh my!

A few photos from the workshop with the Girl Scouts Daisy Troop in Northville, Michigan.

The Crafty Buffet makes Notebook Burgers with Girl Scout Daisy Troop in Northville, MI.

I had the
to make
with fifteen,
1st graders
in Northville
this past Tuesday! Bubbling with enthusiasm, the girls eagerly obtained supplies from The Crafty Buffets' inflatable salad bar then built their "own" burger complete with eyes and "painted on" mustard and ketchup! We had burgers with pink eyes, blue eyes, white eyes, yellow eyes and "no" eyes! The girls packaged their project in the provided foam container which came with a pattern for making "french fry" notes and a complimentary pencil.
What a great time we had - even the moms were amused! Kits and instructions are available at Just go to the products page and scroll down to make your selections.

The Crafty Buffet is available for your upcoming event! We can either come to your location or provide kits and instructions for you to have your own "Crafty Buffet" experience!
We make burgers, sundaes, milkshakes, popcorn, cotton candy, gumball machines, etc. (all faux - of course!) Each Crafty Buffet menu item, although nice to look at, generally serves a purpose as well (i.e. the burgers have sticky notepads inside for jotting down notes, the popcorn is a safe for keeping valuables and the gumball machine makes for the ultimate - treat bucket!)

Our next scheduled event is on Friday, May 1st. We will be "mixing up"Stationary Shakes" with thirty elementary students from Oak Park, MI @ Fuddruckers! Stay tuned...

The Crafty Buffet Beyond Martha Stewart's been two months since my appearance on the Martha Stewart Show. Crafty Buffet Oven Kit sales are still trickling in and a new item, Cheeseburger Notebooks have been added to The Crafty Buffet website. If you are looking for an activity for summer birthday parties, camp-outs, cook-outs or just plain old "pig-outs" I've grilled up a good one! These "delicious-looking" faux burgers not only look like the real thing - but have function too! Adults and children alike will delight in making them! Complete with a foam display container and topped with or without eyes these adoring burgers make for a great group activity! I'll send you the kit for $19.95 (plus s&h), or you can gather your own supplies and get the receipe for $10 (plus s&h).
