Workin' on mah Q!

I thought I remembered there was some rule about kids being able to play along but swaps had to be primarily a grown up exchange. Is this a definite go?

I know there are rules about kids participating in swaps, but seeing as the parent is responsible for their child in this swap we're ok. You will have to help the children but the focus is on them creating.

Both my kids definitely want in! I need to check my dance card though and sure I've got space.

There seem to only be 2 participants signed up, that won't be enough. I'm going to solicit parents on here to join!
