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.

Kids Homemade Bookmark Craft Kit: Flower Bookmark Activity Kit For Making Bookmarks Kit is too expensive for me- but contact paper with pressed flowers would make a neat SWAP.

Easy Kids Crafts:These could be cute as SWAPs, without the egg cup section. Glue a few tail feathers in the back, maybe. And put a loop of string through the head- wrap the string around a bit of craft foam or something so it doesn't pull through.

Letter badge brooch -- Felt initial letter pin brooch - CUSTOM ORDER alphabet - or make your own pattern. Girls could make a bunch of their own first initials and SWAP with Girl Scouts.

I don't know why I like these so much but I think it has something to do with looking like part of a costume in a Wes Anderson movie.

hoopla palooza: mini caramel apples. The site has you add a magnet- for SWAPs I'll use a safety pin or pin back. I'd simplify the craft as well- maybe skip the glitter, use Crayola modeling compound instead of polymer clay, etc.
