Details of swap:

This swap is about introducing children to books and characters outside of their comfortable norm. You will be choosing a book your children enjoy and sending it to your partner to introduce them to a book or author that should be completely new to them. Often times our children get caught up in rereading the same books or characters over and over this gives them the chance to learn about a new one. You will also be crafting a medium and two small items, or one large and one small item to go along with the book but does not necessarily have to be part of the book.  Do your children like a special cookie at reading time, then make a batch and send it with the book. Do you like curling up with a blanket, then make one and send it along. Puppets, amigurumi, cocoa mix, the ideas are endless.

For this swap, remember you want to break out of the mold and definitely out of the sterotypes.

I'll do my best to pair people by children's age range. Remember this swap is for children 7 and under

For those who need a refresher, here's the Craftster guide to what is a large, a medium and a small:

By Time
-Large = 3 or more hours
-Medium = 2 or more hours
-Small = 2 or less hours

By Size
-Large = A shawl, a shirt, a skirt, a set of jewelry with four to five items, a purse
-Medium = one single necklace or bracelet, a scarf
-Small = Earrings, stickers, wallets, pouches, bookmarks

By Price
-Large = $30 or more
-Medium = $10-$30 dollars
-Small = $10 or less
