Need Some Ready Made Swaps and Crafts? Mini Me Crafts to the Rescue!

Earlier this summer, I was looking for new Girl Scout crafts to share with my fellow leaders.   I came across this delightful site, Mini Me Crafts.

Mini Me Crafts was created by Elizabeth Chick in 2010.  A veteran science teacher, mom, and Girl Scout leader, she ran into problems while trying to get materials for her various projects.  She was spending lots of time and her own personal money for items, and knew there had to be a better and easier way to fulfill her needs.

Her solution, Mini Me Crafts, came to her in a dream. It is named “Mini Me” because her daughter, Samantha, is a mini version of her!

I emailed Elizabeth and asked if she could send me a Swap kit to review on this blog.

She responded to my request by sending me several different kits for my 9.5 year old daughter to try.

The following review is based on my own personal experiences with Mini Me Crafts.  I have not been reimbursed for this review, nor are any of the links affiliate links.  I want to support my fellow Girl Scout leaders and mompreneurs.

Because Elizabeth sent so many wonderful things, I am going to split the review into two different posts.

When my daughter and I opened the box, the first thing we saw was this adorable Girl Scout Swap bag!

It is well crafted and a pretty way for your girls to store their Swaps or anything else for that matter!  For $3.00, it would make an adorable stocking stuffer or holiday gift for your girls!

The first thing my daughter wanted to make was the Juliette Low Pearl Necklace kit.  

This kit comes with everything you need to make a necklace and a box to store it in. It is a great way to celebrate Founder’s Day on October 31st!

My daughter, who is going into fourth grade, had no problem putting it together.  Daisy leaders who wish to do this will need extra hands for beading and tying.  The box is well made and all pieces come with stickies. We just needed a bit of extra glue to keep the daisy on top.  My daughter really enjoyed making this!

 

In my next post, I will review the Swap kits Elizabeth sent me!
