I was looking through my closet, and I found a bunch of my old kids crafts.  You know, pony beads, melty bead things (the things you arrange then iron to melt them together), etc.  What if their was a challenge to make something unique and challenging out of "kids" crafts.  Something that makes kiddish craft supplies look like it wasn't made out of supplies designed for children. 

(Couldn't think of an original name)

This is a fun idea. Smiley One time we did a "kitschy crafts contest" where people had to make something out of any of these materials:

- chenille stems (aka pipe cleaners)
- dried pasta/macaroni in any shapes
- gimp (aka plastic lacing)
- popsicle sticks
- plastic easter grass
- pom poms
- potholder loops (aka jersey loops)
