Crafting for Girl Scouts: Update... the Swaps

Just in case you were wondering... I did get those 'swaps' done for the Girl Scout event. Surprisingly, 200 weren't so hard to make. Afton helped me with about 75 of them. We simply threaded a safety pin into the pre-cut felt shapes that I had found Hobby Lobby. Then I hot glued her troop number to the back. We were pleased with the way the daisy swaps turned out.


Most importantly, we had fun making them :) And when "World Thinking Day" was finally here, Afton had a blast! She collected a ton of swaps, met lots of new friends, and learned some new interesting facts about places around the world.




























Here are a few of her favorite swaps from that day...

a tiny easel and painting from France



some little hairy guy (she couldn't remember which country he came from)


a swiss army knife from Swizterland


 sand and shells from Jamaica

a tiny bag of coffee beans



and a miniature flag from Mexico


What crafts have you been working on for your kiddos (or grandkiddos) lately?
