Details of swap:

As Red Fumes said, crafting makes learning fun! As a partner you will have to research your partners favourite figures from history in order to create crafts based on those characters. For example, if they liked Blackbeard, some pirate swag would be in order!

Also those who feel up to the challenge could write up their thoughts on whether or not the figure(s) would be a craftster based on the interesting information they gathered!

We will be aiming to craft one big, one medium and one small item minimum but feel free to discuss this with your partner if you want to do more.
