Tic Tac Toe SWAP

The next easy SWAP that I included in the SWAP kits I made for camp was a Tic Tac Toe in a bag SWAP.  If you have ever looked on Pinterest, you will find dozens of these SWAPS.  They are not very hard to make and this is not a new idea, but I hope you find the printable tag helpful.Into a 2×3 inch plastic jewelry bag place 10 pony beads (5 of each color) along with the tag.  Just be sure to write your name and troop number on the back of each SWAP tag.

Make a Joyful Noise

Every year at camp there is at least one new girl who has no idea what a SWAP is. Then there are those who ran out of time before camp to make any, or worse, they made them but left them at home on the kitchen table.  This summer the camp directors asked me to put together SWAP kits to help those who did not have SWAPS to trade.  Using paper lunch sacks, I placed all of the supplies to create 15-25 SWAPS with a sample pinned to the outside of the bag.  All of them were super easy, inexpensive, and needed no detailed instructions.  I thought I would share these super easy SWAPS with you.

I Spy Bottles

When helping our Tenderhearts complete the Stick Shifts and Safety Belts merit Badge, we created “I Spy” bottles.

Our troop has a very diverse group of Tenderhearts. This made creating a travel game a little more challenging.  My non-reading first grader would not enjoy finding license plates. My only child from a single parent home would not enjoy playing Tic-tac-toe by herself.  It is important to consider the girls and their needs.
