If you are like me, there are so many times that you want to craft something, but are unsure of what to do. Or, maybe the problem is that you are looking for a particular craft project, but can’t find instructions. One of the very best magazines that I have found is Pack O Fun
This magazine is very easy to read. I have never had any trouble understanding the directions for a project. The magazine is very clear about what materials you need, where to find them and what level of crafting, from easy to difficult, a project is. They provide pictures of the finished projects, as well as some step by step pictures if the project is complex or something very different. I find it so very helpful to have a visual reference if it is a project I have never tried before. Another very nice feature is that, when appropriate, they will show several different ways to complete a project.
Pack O Fun also has different topics in each magazine. You may not find them in every edition, but you can find religious crafts, group crafts, as well as scout crafts. There are crafts that appeal to boys as well as girls and also their ideas span many age groups. Do you like to use recyclable materials? Are you interested in a particular type of craft? This magazine will be able to help you find so many different types of ideas. I have never failed to find a way to make something if I have looked through Pack O Fun. They also have a way of highlighting a seasonal craft and their timing for holidays is very good. You will have plenty of time to complete a project for any holiday when you are subscribed to this magazine.
Do you like to share your crafting with others? In every issue, Pack O Fun features kids and their creations. What a wonderful way to inspire and reward our kids’ creative nature! For me, it is reassuring to see a company that will support our young people in this way. I believe this will help to encourage our children to continue to do their best and feel proud when they have accomplished a goal.
This magazine is truly one of the best I have ever used. I subscribed for several years when I was my son’s Cub Scout Den Leader. By using this magazine, I never had any trouble coming up with ideas for meetings. I still have, and use, these back issues and have frequented our local library to continue this routine with my Girl Scout Brownie troop.
