Details of swap:

This swap is about introducing children to new books and characters. You will be choosing a book your children enjoy and sending it to your partner to introduce them to a book or author that will hopefully be completely new to them. (Books may be new, or gently used.)  You will also be crafting a medium and two small items, or one large and one small item to go along with the book.

I'll do my best to pair people by children's age range. This swap is for children 8 and under.  (You may swap for multiple children, but you will need to send a package for each child who is participating, if you want them to receive individual packages.)

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

Please note that if you are swapping for your children as one group package (or if you only have one child, of course!), a single questionnaire is sufficient; if you have multiple children you would like to swap for individually, please send a separate questionnaire for each child.

If you want to participate, information to send to organizer:

Can I have items sent to my niece who doesn't live with me? I'd be happy to craft and send off books.

My niece is 1 years old this month.

If you will be able to confirm receipt, then yes!  Just please be sure to let your partner know if you won't be able to post pictures, so she can be sure to get some before sending.

this looks like fun, but not well atm, so have to see how things go. Would LOVE to get new books for our boys - we're always on the lookout for new reading material (we get bored reading the same books all the time!)
