Girl Scout 'SWAP' Ideas

One fun Girl Scout tradition is sharing SWAPs. These 'SWAPs' (or Special Whatchmacallits Affectionately Pinned somewhere or Shared With A Pal) are cute pins made to share with other Girl Scouts. A fun ice breaker at large events or a special way to remember new friends by.

Cinnamon Stick Tree Christmas Ornaments For a SWAP, use a mini craft stick or a real twig instead of a cinnamon stick.

Winter themed SWAP, but you can change the charm to just about anything (check e-bay for cheap charms!) very easily. Also a nice gift.

We made this pin for World Thinking Day. The country our troop was representing was Germany. It is the German flag in the Girl Scout trefoil shape mounted on a wooden Scrabble game piece with pin glued on the back.

The TP swap is made with a piece of felt around a wooden spool.

You have to sign up to see instructions, but I think the pictures are self explanatory. I saw bags of wooden spools at Michael's craft store...

These (and other cute items on the website) are cookies, but you could use the idea on repurposed Scrabble tiles to make SWAP's. Add a bail or screw with eye for pinning.

Gallon Milk cap, fake spider from a ring or bag at halloween, then wire or string for the web. If you have younger girls, just putting some string in and then gluing the spider in but older girls can cut the caps and "string" the lid.

Love the idea of using die cut machine to cut out letters (girls' first names, big G for Girl; Scouts, etc.) for girls to decorate, then shrink. Durable SWAP!
