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.
Girl Scout Swaps aka special whatchamacallits affectionately pinned somewhere - mitten swaps, can cut out little foam mittens to decorate to the liking of the little scouts

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!
