Not Your Usual Crafternoon! (Part 2)

Hello hello and welcome back!

Earlier this week we showed you how we kicked off our last Crafternoon, with a lively game of Wizards, Giants and Midgets that you can play too.  How did you go?

After we got pumped up and psyched following our game of Wizards, Giants and Midgets, we got down to business brainstorming for our participation in the upcoming Amplify Festival.  Oh yes, Team Looloo is very pleased to announce that we will be at this year’s Amplify Festival in June!

Held from 3-7 June, the Amplify Festival is our opportunity to showcase Looloo Paper to prospective corporate business executives.  Our challenge is to impress, inspire and educate our audience with a space of only 1.5 x 2m and less than 30 seconds.  Impossible?

Impossible

Come through a toilet seat entrance and a forest of toilet paper trees, and try your hand at throwing the world’s sanitation problems down the loo (literally).  From vanilla sponge cake in the style of a loo roll to a game of Looloo Twister, our creative geniuses are working hard to make this one memorable debut.

The Looloo Grand Prize for Creativity this Crafternoon went to the very awesome Ben who came up with the idea of a life-size cut out of our mascot (known affectionately around the office as Noodleman), so that anyone can stand behind it, have their photo taken and be a hero too.

Not Your Usual Crafternoon! (Part 1)

Last Thursday, Team Looloo had a rather unusual Crafternoon session (What’s this, you ask?  Check out our first ever Crafternoon here!).

Instead of launching straight into our usual Arts and Crafts, we decided to play a game and indulge our inner child as well as prepare us for the brainstorming session to follow.  Move over, rock-paper-scissors… wizards, giants and midgets in the house – oops, office!

WMG

How do you play wizards, giants and midgets?

Split into two teams and choose as a team whether you’d like to be midgets, giants or wizards.  Then stand in two rows facing each other and when your appointed referee says “Go!”, you either:

  • Crouch if you’re a midget
  • Put your hands up if you’re a giant
  • Or stand Harry Potter style with a pretend wand out if you’re a wizard

Now, the game play is broken down like this:

  • Wizards chase giants
  • Giants chase midgets
  • Midgets chase wizards

Let’s say you’re a midget, and the other team are giants, your goal would be to run as quickly as possible to the other side of the room without being caught by the giants!  If you’re caught, you’d have to join the other team.

Whoever took these photos were probably laughing too hard to take a clear picture, but we do have a much clearer photo courtesy of Kaitlin from one of our adjacent offices.

I think she caught us at a moment when we all decided to be wizards.  Great minds think alike?  We all ended up the same about 5 times out of 7!  Not sure if epic win or epic fail…

Give this game a go and let us know how you went on our facebook, twitter or instagram.

The Universe Believes in Looloo Paper!

ImageHave you heard the latest buzz?

This is just absolutely boggling the minds of everyone at Looloo HQ right now!

So….get this. At Looloo Paper, we share an office with 3 other businesses who all live in Bondi….that means we all catch the bus 333 to our office at 333 George Street….where we work on Looloo, directly across the street from Lulu Lemon, with an intern named Lulu!

Best of all?  We just found out that there’s an average of 333 squares on a toilet roll.

BAM!

Mind blown.

Synchronisation in numbers.  The universe believes in Looloo Paper.  Do you?  It’s a sign, so sign up now!

A little sneak peek… (shhh!)

repurpose

Here at our spanking new Looloo Paper HQ, we are all about upcycling and repurposing.  And we just had our first ‘crafternoon’ session!

“What’s a crafternoon?” you say?

Crafternoons are Looloo Paper’s monthly in-office Arts and Crafts afternoons where we all do a little DIY to breath life into scraps and pieces that most people would simply throw away.  We’ll also show you some easy-to-make crafts so you can get started and get inspired to upcycle your own masterpieces.

So keep your eyes peeled for our Easter-inspired crafternoon!
