Complete this brand new live event (starts 7th May) to unlock poolside themed items including spas and if you complete the whole event in the time limit you unlock the poolside bungalow! This event is only here for 9 days and the aim of it is to collect enough arts and crafts items from the arts and crafts stations (found in the event tab of buy mode) to unlock all the items in this event

Check out my Guide to Completing Live Events (including tips!) HERE!

NOTE: if you did another Live Event then you will find your arts and crafts stations in your inventory (or in the house you left them at) you will only be able to use the candle ones until you unlock the other stations in this event

Can’t find your arts and crafts stations? Click on the craft station in your event tab to get the option to find your station, it will take you to the house where your stations can be found!

Place a crafting station (find the candle station in the events tab of buy mode (or your inventory)- you can only buy 4)

Make some arts and crafts items (click on the candle station to make)- 23 seconds

This takes you to the prize progress tab (you can get to it by clicking on the poolside button in the corner of the screen)

Here you will see you have collected enough items to unlock the Bungalow Wall pack! When you unlock each pack, before the items are available in your home store you need to purchase them with the arts and crafts items you make- this goal is coming up! 

Restock a crafting station (when the stock runs out you will have to restock before you can make anymore arts and crafts items)- You can restock instantly for 18 uses for 10SP or restock for 2 uses which will take 10 seconds this time

Buy the Bungalow Wall pack (click on the poolside event button, scroll down and click purchase- this will cost you 50 candles)

Use a coin flower patch (buy the coin flower patch from the event tab and select the spin plant option)

Check the daily goals (click on the drinks event button and find the daily goals tab- claim the ones you can!)

Remember to claim your rewards each day!

Collect bonuses (while collecting after a certain amount of time you will see the arts and crafts item appear above that sims head, click to collect the bonus item!)

Continue collecting arts and crafts items- this is the last step but the event is not over, keep collecting the arts and crafts to unlock everything!

If you want to speed up a collecting arts and crafts action it will cost you SPs, you will get the bonus gems as well if you speed it up!

26.Poolside Bungalow- you can only claim this pack if you have purchased all the other packs in this live event

This house can be built on a standard or premium residence, you will find this under the driveway homes tab when selecting which house to build. The first one is free then they cost simoleons depending on how many houses you have already built. You can add up to 4 cars to this house lot!

The other three car parking spaces need to be unlocked by purchasing with simoleons:

  • Additional Space One: S250,000
  • Additional Space Two: S750,000
  • Additional Space Three: S1,500,000

Once you purchase an additional space you will be able to add another car but you need to have more than one adult/senior sim living in this house to add more than one car otherwise it will just switch their car to the new one you have just brought. For example if you wanted 3 cars in this house you need 3 adult or senior sims living in this house.

The only difference between this house on a standard and a premium residence is the garden, there is outdoor furniture behind the bungalow. You will find the in-ground spa available on both the standard and premium residence which can be moved:

Completing this event also unlocks the in-ground spas in the store (check out my post on how to add and use the spas here) as well as Grey Concrete pool and patio paving, Tall Oak Slats (window), Oak Slats Double (door), Black Cube Partition, Black Fan and Gold Rubix Mirror Double (decorations) Oak Sunside Table (dining room) Black Danging Lamp (lighting) and Oak Floorboards (flooring)

Constructor Coins

You earn constructor coins by:

Personal Progress prizes

Completing Daily Goals

Coin Plant Patches

Earning Constructor Coins? Previously on these events I used social points on the Mega Spin Plant to win constructor points. I earn social points by completing the cooking hobby and earning LPs, I can then turn the LPs into SPs using the social point plant on a normal garden patch- this was when it cost 5LPs- the social point plant now costs 20LPs so you may want to try the option below first instead:

Or you can use 450 candles for the Spin Plant (a good way to use up any spare candles) which will also earn you constructor coins but the amounts are less than they are from the Mega Spin Plant

What is the minimum and maximum amount of coins you can earn on the mega spin plant? The minimum is 10 and the maximum is 500

Now on the coin flower patch you can see the chances of getting the different combinations on each spin plant, click on the green i button to see:


Laura Craft? You may have noticed at the front of one of your houses there is a board with a bubble of a person holding arts and crafts items above it, this is Laura Craft, you can buy her for real money to help you complete the event. When you buy her, you select the item you want her to make from the options: 200 candles,  300 pottery, 450 jewelry or 500 glassware (the amounts seem to differ for most of you and I have no idea why that is!) (you will unlock all the options once you have unlocked all the stations) and you will be able to collect them after 2 hours.

Do I think she is worth it? They have improved Laura Craft a lot since the first event (although it would be great if she made constructor coins) she used to be able to collect every 8 hours, they have now changed this to 2 hours so she is more useful now so if you are struggling then you may want to splash out and give her a try but remember you will only get her for this event, you will have to buy her again to use her for a live event in the future. I personally don’t ever buy her, if I don’t manage to earn enough items or coins in the time limit I just wait until the next time the event is available!

If I brought Laura Craft in the last event do I get her for free or do I have to buy her again? You have to buy her again for this event.

If I don’t complete this event this time will I have to start from the beginning when it returns? No, you will start from where you got to this time!

  1. I like the prizes here, but honestly, what have the players done to have the prices hiked up so high?! It’s ridiculous and unfair! FM need to sort themselves out ’cause honestly I’ve just about had enough!

  2. I assume you need to have unlocked the Family Garage Home
    and therefore the driveway homes template during the Grand Garages Live Event to be able to claim the Poolside Bungalow?

    Or do you get it anyway as long as you complete this live event?

    • You don’t need to have unlocked the Family Garage Home as that is a different template but the Poolside Bungalow is also a driveway homes template so you will find it in the same tab as the family garage home if you unlocked it, if not you can still complete this event and unlock the bungalow in the driveway homes tab.

  3. I think EA or FM needs to revamp or redo sims freeplay 🧐 Because all this new events (like sim chase and pregnancy) and their live events are just pure money grab. What did their players do to deserve this kind of treatment from them?!?!? Really all the decorations that didn’t even have an interaction are so expensive, they couldn’t even give their players new lots to build, all the prices of this year live events are hella expensive, and lastly what is going on with the ads?!?!? And don’t get me started with online store 😤😤!! Really FM/EA, what is wrong with you?!?!?!?
