Restricted to people who all live in the same country? NO

Additional Age requirement? 18+ and a kid/teen to craft with/for!


Details of swap:

Valentines day is fun for kids too!  In this swap an adult/child will be working together to craft some valentine treats for a child!   You must also send a kid-made valentines card to go with it!  I'm keeping the points small with the option of adding some store bought goodies, to keep it simple and fun for the kids.  You can go over points if you and your partner agree!  

Please remember that we are crafting for kids here, and no kid wants to be flaked on for valentines day!

1. This is a 3pt swap.   1-2 points will be made by the adult, and 1-2 points will be made by the child or working together (depending on child's age/ability).  1pt can also be store bought goodies, candy etc. (so you can choose to craft 3pts total, or 2pts + 1pt of non crafted)

2. In addition to the 3 points, you will also send a valentines card made by the kid.  This can be in any medium/format you like.  

3. If you have more than one child you are welcome to sign them up as well.  But you will craft one 3pt package per child you sign up.  Depending on sign ups, you may end up sending those packages to more than one family, OR send them all to the same family, so please keep that in mind.  

4.  This swap is for kids/teens of all ages, I will try and match ages when possible but depending on sign ups that might not always happen.

Ohh, I want to join this swap, but, I can't.  My boys are 19yrs old and 14yrs old, and wouldn't want to craft something for a kid.    I would like to make a stuffed animal for a kid.  Kids are my favorite people to craft for.   


Grab a niece or nephew or neighbor kid. Don't let age stop you lol. I love this idea and will be filling out questionnaires for my 7yr old and my 3yr old twins. They will have a blast and what a great project to do together!!!
