I got a couple of copies of Pack-o-Fun at the Crafts Convention and I can heartily say that this magazine is Crayon Tested- Teacher Approved.
The Crayons really loved reading this magazine and making the Valentines Mailboxes. I think it's safe to say we made almost all of them. One caviot, Pack-o-Fun (like most all craft publications) is designed to sell the products of it's advertisers, so I had to have a talk with the Crayons about coming up with their own materials. I wasn't going to buy feather boas, craft foam or google eyes. They would have to improvise. I think improvisation is an important skill and I am cheap, so it's a win-win there.

From the Crayon Box:
Our Valentines Mailboxs
Loosly inspired Beverly the Bear
Some Terrific Sammy the Skunks.
The original called for using soda bottles. I think the Crayons adapted this one very well.
Quite a few robots. Less functional and more fun.
I am sure Pink wouldn't name her whale "Walter."
Freddie the Frog
Last but not least, an amazing guitar!Hope Your Valentines is a "pack -o- fun" too!
