My 12 yo has been wanting to make one for a while and i bet my 9 yo would love to as well- there's enough tim before school!
Even personal swap would be great Wink

Anyone else interested?

Seeing as my son, who is 8, loves to be creative with me I think he would love to do a swap, but I don't know how a kid swap would work out, any idea of what to swap and so on?

I've seen them here, from time to time - usually kids get matched up by their age and the swap is the parent's responsibility, but for the kids to

My kids would be happy to do it but we are in Canada so flat ship items are preferable if possible. They recently made some ATC's and liked that very much. They'd make their own pokemon type cards in the past, those are so hilarious. Along those lines we were thinking it would be fun to do a junior version of the Craftster trading cards, draw yourself as a cartoon and give stats or something like that. They'd also like to trade hand drawn comic books, decorated note paper/card and envelop sets, handmade stickers, something for their school kit like a pencil case (sewn or prefab but decorated), zipper pulls for jackets and backpack. Patches to sew on things could be fun. They have bulletin boards where they stick up all sorts of special things. They love snail mail so a letter from a new friend about their interests and hobbies is always great.

What are your ideas?

Yes! It could even be a drawing or a patchwork thing, to fit through the slot of doom!
... just something fun to make and trade.

Let's ask the kids what they would like to make and receive and report back here?

We live in Norway so I hope someone would be willing to ship all the way here.

I did some searching and found two galleries for craft swaps
