Songfest SWAPS

“OOMPY” pick: Songfest SWAPS

From: OOMPY friend favorite-Sinness

I was so happy to be a part of our Girl Scout Neighborhood’s first ever Songfest!!  The girls got to SWAP with friends, eat cake and sing their favorite Girl Scout songs.  Super FUN times!!

Items needed

  • Iridescent pipecleaners (cut in half)
  • Assorted bells
  • Safety pins






SWAPS are a little handmade tokens of friendship Girl Scouts make to trade with each other at special events.  Each girl should decide how many she wants to make…this will be the same amount she receives in return.  Swaps are usually only an inch or two in size and can be made from almost anything…new, used or recycled.  It’s nice to include your troop number and the name and date of the event to remember the fun times.  Swaps are traditionally worn on a “SWAP” hat (a baseball cap) but can also be attached to a long scrap of fabric or felt.
