You don't need to be a Girl Scout to earn a merit badge! Let's make the merit badges that we have always thought we deserved!
The world is your oyster when listing things you deserve a merit badge for. Some ideas to consider:
Did you adult today?
Put on your bra?
Settled your toddler in bed in less than an HOUR?
Are you a Master Sewist?
An awesome Stitcher?
Fell asleep in less than a half hour?
Slept for more than five hours?
Finished a Netflix binge of [fill in show here]?
Completed level 434 in Candy Crush?
You didn't cry today?
You made someone laugh today?
List something you are proud of, list something funny, list something serious, list something everyone always says you deserve a badge for!
The possibilities are ENDLESS!!!!

THIS SWAP IS FOR MINIMUM TWO BADGES PER PARTNER! Any deviations from this should be clearly communicated between swap partners.

See below for some examples of what I have seen; but I have also seen some done in the style of a military medal or brooch.

PARTNER LIST

Okay. Picking partners is fun but stressful. Especially swaps where there is an option for multiple partners. Hopefully ya'll get this. If I put a <--> between two people, it's a simple back and forth swap. If you asked for more than one partner; or if you have asked for one partner and your partner has two partners...you have your own special line that will show your partner(s). It might show what might look like duplicates; but I promise there are no duplicates! Beyond the fact that my method actually makes sure there are no duplicates, I did a flow chart (that was ridiculous!) that I would be happy to share if you're interested.  Grin
