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.

I am sure my two kids would love to do this!  I have a 12 year old girl and 7 (almost 8) year old boy.  I will send in our info when I have them here to answer!

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!!!

My PEZ girls and I just sent in our questionaire. We can't wait to get partners. It will be the first swap my girls have done. Paige is wanting to exchange pictures of themselves with their partners. She really wants to meet them but will settle for a picture. I think it is adorable how the girls answered the questions and were so curious about who they would get and what we could start on now.
Love the idea of more kids swaps. Kids love to get stuff in the mail.

szuzu1969 - my girls are the same way. They were hoping to see the child they were going to craft for. I told them maybe a picture, as I didn't want to promise anything.

I was going to wait to tell them until it was closer to partnering time, but the hubster let the cat out of the bag last night!!  So now I have them asking me how many more days until we start crafting.  ;)  I want to tell them we will start crafting after mommy finishes the piggies for the SSS30 swap, but I know that answer won't appease them.  :D

I love the excitement in their faces whenever they bring it up. Katelyn's birthday is two days after Valentine's day, so this will just add to her special day/week... month.  ;)

If they are too excited to start, you could have them draw a picture of themselves to send.  Maybe with doodles around it of what they like to do or interesting things about their town, almost pen-pal-ish.  My girls love learning about new places when they get to do swaps.  It's something they could do now to keep occupied until partners at least, LOL.

My girls went with me to JoAnns yesterday and they were looking at all the different types of crafts they would like to do. I am glad we will have partners soon.  ;)

I have been looking forward to participating in a swap that my children could help out with, so I am excited about getting started. I might be more excited than my girls are.  :-[

I think we have a good group of crafty kiddos!   I always loves arts and crafts and I would have had so much fun with something like this as a kid!   Levi is looking forward to it!


Sign ups end tomorrow and I will try and have partners up the following day, I'll do my best to be fast at matching as I'm already working on it a bit!

Peri and I have been working away on some new crafts and the package is looking good but it will require more work.  I was hoping to send tomorrow but I didn't want to push her too hard.  Looks like at least one more full weekend of crafting for us.

Ugh. I feel so behind. I know what I'm doing and what Valentine Gavin will be making. I'm having a hard time picking something for Gavin to craft though. I'm going to Walmart tomorrow so I'll probably get some stuff there.

we've been looking over surveys, and have gotten excited about books we all like,
and we gotten away from valentines day a bit. except for the card. would anyone be disappointed if that got a great package geared more towards their likes? i'm wondereng if i should adjust a little...

My girls are making items based on their partners likes and the theme of love and friendship. I am making the girls' partners crafty things based more on the questionnaire than Valentines.

K and M have completed one craft each for their partners and I have completed one craft for M's partner. I think I am going to set up another craft for my girls to do this weekend.  I am going to have to think a little more before I know what I am going to make for K's partner.

My daughters are having a bunch of fun though!  I don't even think they realize they are getting a package in return, they are so focused on making things for their new friends.  :D

My little Madelyn keeps saying that she loves Anna. And Katelyn wonders, if I like books so much, why I didn't name her Paige... So I know that she loves her partner's name. (I almost named her Novelyn, after Novelyn Price.)  ;)

We are still chuggin' along. Katelyn and Madelyn have each completed one item each and have one more to go. I have finished one and I am still pondering what item I should make for the second partner. I am sure an epiphany is on it's way shortly.  ;)

I may not be sending until next Tuesday as that is payday...  ;D

lori and leah are part way  there on the packages. the cards and the small items are done, but each package still has a large piece that is unfinished. they are having freinds over on saturday for their birthday party so we've been busy cleaning and planning this week. we are planning to finish up after the party, and send out next week by the send date.

Snow day here in indiana so we've been finishing up our projects, since after 1/2 hour outside we are soo bored. :)

the leah and lori have enjoyed this, and now they want to make a set of gifts for themselves to keep. i love it when they find something to do that doesn't involve a remote.

i didn't realize that the desk closed earlier than the lobby, so it was already closed when we got there. ugh.

i went first thing this morning though and sent both packages out. it gave the girls time to tuck in one more thing.

they get so much more excited making something for someone else than for themselves.

Hope everyone is getting their Valentine items okay. I know one of my swap partners won't get his until Monday but hopefully the other one got hers. Hope everyone has a magnificent Valentine's Day!!! I loved swapping with my daughters and they loved it too.
