Give MAKE/CRAFT to a school
Mags in library.JPG

Last year I gave MAKE and CRAFT gift subscriptions to my son’s school – I was in the school library the other day and saw the latest editions on the magazine rack, looking well-thumbed already! The librarian often sends me emails telling me about kids and teachers discovering the magazines in the library and getting really excited, and I know several teachers are starting to use them in their curriculum development. It makes me remember the first time I saw Make on the newsstand and how thrilled I was to find it existed – I love that I can pass that excitement and inspiration on to teachers and kids. If you have a tradition of teacher gifts, or would like to support your local schools, I’m sure MAKE and CRAFT subscriptions would be very welcome. Check out the awesome giftcards our design folks cooked up, too!

  1. …find it sad that there are all of those intelligent, educational, good reading magazines surrounding *two* copies of MAD?

    It makes me a sad panda.

    …then again, a school with The Economist _AND_ The New Yorker? Wow!

  2. Mad is pretty cool, it’s very political – and our Spy Tech issue of MAKE features Spy vs Spy on the cover! And if it brings kids into the library, maybe they’ll pick up something else, too. Maybe Smithsonian or Science News – they have a lot of great magazines. :)

  3. Spy vs Spy on the front of Make, and Mad magazine the magazine that Spy vs Spy came from….
    The kids need to read Mad to know were the Spy guys originated!
    We old school kids already know.
    HaHa good one!
