Details of swap:

This swap is open to Craftsters and their children/grandchildren. Children will be matched up by age and if possible, gender however, I must first look at shipping and allergies.  


one medium by an adult and child
three smalls by the child.
Extras are optional


Here are Craftster guidelines.  Keep in mind that these are normal adult crafting times..it will take a bit longer for kiddos to craft...  (Also remember that these are guidelines; they are not set in stone!  Use your judgment and send a package you/your child would be happy to receive.)

By Time
-Big=3 or more hours
-Medium=2 or more hours
-Little=2 or less hours

By Size
-Big=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
-Big= $31 or more
-Medium=$10-$30 dollars
-Small=$10 or less

Link to past kids' galleries:

**You must PM me and your partner when you send and when you receive.
**If you are shipping late, you must PM me and your partner ASAP, and before the send out date.
**Delivery confirmation numbers are required.  If you are an international swapper, you MUST keep your shipping receipts and, if possible, pm me with customs numbers.

Be sure to post in this thread at least once a week to foster good communication.

Member receiving will be responsible for risks involved with swap (making sure button eyes aren't swallowed, candy doesn't contain allergens and such horrors not likely, but theoretically possible).  We expect common sense. Wink

*** Due to the nature of this swap, package should be sent to (child's first name) in care of (craftster members name and address)***

Also, remember to read the Swap Info Guide to find other rules about participating in a swap.

I'd totally be down for this one as long as there would be a good match for my kid. She's almost 11 and we have two short haired dogs and two short haired cats if that makes a difference!

I'm interested in personal swaps, just ask!

My eight year old son wouldn't mind being grouped with a girl and we have a cat, so there is at least one person who could partner with her. My eight year old has lots of gender neutral interests too. My six year old made it clear that he'd like a boy partner.

I have an 11 year old daughter and 7 year old son.  We have cats and dogs in our non smoking house.  My daughter has been waiting for another one of these swaps.  Going to send in our info today.

I would love to get in on this, but my 15 year old son doesn't have the interest anymore (He used to craft with me, I even taught him to knit) - and my daughter is only 11 months, so she can't craft quite yet.  Give me a year or 2 and I will have her hooked on crafting too and will get in on this. 

I will be watching this swap for the enjoyment of seeing the kids craft.

Away for a while creating little humans.  Now they are old enough to get crafty again, so I am back.  Smiley

I think my 4 yr old daughter would like this. I'll ask her later & fill out the questionnaire when I get to my computer.

Sorry for the delay in adding new members; I was out of town with the family this past weekend. We went to the children's museum in Indianapolis.

It's fun to have your kids answer the questions for the questionnaire. I had fun asking the questions to my boys. They had interesting answers.

I wish  I  could join this, but my brother is coming into town right in the middle of craft time. Both my kids love to make crafts... Hopefully next round!
