SWAPS – Special Whatchamacallits Affectionately Pinned Somewhere
SWAPS are small crafts that Girl Scouts give as gifts or trade with
others. The idea of SWAPS started at the original National Roundup
Conferences. SWAPS can be simple or complex, cheap, or expensive –
whatever the maker desires. Girls and adults, feel free to bring
SWAPS to Super Saturday and share with your new friends.
Arts and Crafts Potpourri
Bring those extra craft supplies that you no longer need. You know
the ones – only five out of ten girls showed up to the meeting and you
had enough for all ten. We’ve all been there and want to “use
resources wisely” so bring them to swap.
GSSSC Badge/Journey Fair
Sign up to bring a trifold poster board featuring a badge or Journey
your troop earned. Share with other what your girls loved so leaders
can get ideas from each other. Include pictures, resources including
community members that may have helped, tips and tricks, etc.
