Thanks for your comments. I think I enjoy doing this project because my third graders enjoy it so much. The boxes really do look kid-made when they come back, and the kids are super proud of them. Many will excitedly tell me they had help covering the box with paper, but after that they did it on their own! You can see in the pictures, most of the decorating consists of glueing (and taping!) things on top. Obviously, this project is not for everyone, but I'm glad you are going to give it a try. I hope your class has fun with it!
