HBO has announced a new Max Original series hosted by YouTube influencer Lauren Riihimaki, better known as LaurDIY, called “Craftopia.”

The series sees kids compete in unique crafting challenges. Challenges for the first season include a puppet theater, a comfy doghouse and a custom lemonade stand.
