Ready Made Girl Scout Swap Kits for World Thinking Day 2018

*This post contains affiliate links.

One of the three main Girl Scout holidays falls square in the middle of many Council’s Girl Scout cookie selling season. It is a very busy and stressful time for leaders, and for many, they are doing it all. From planning meetings to doing cookie booths, leaders do not need one more thing to plan or create.

World Thinking Day is celebrated on February 22nd each year. The GSUSA website has activities that girls from 146 countries around the world can do together. Another option that many leaders choose is to select one country and focus a meeting around it.

In a blog post from my Daisy site, I created an EASY five step meeting plan for leaders of any level to use. One part of the guide is step four, the craft. An easy, no brainer, inexpensive craft to do is to make a Swap based on the country you selected.

Making Friends has many countries available. Here are just a few.

For a complete list of countries available for World Thinking Day Swap Kits, you can find them here. You will need to scroll down a bit before you get the the kits for WTD.

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.

The ” I Love Girl Scouts” Swap kit is very simple to make-my daughter, who is almost ten, put it together rather quickly.  Younger Daisies will need help.  It is a great first Swap for Daisies or a quick craft for older girls.  They can attach it to their backpacks and share with everyone in school that they love being a Girl Scout!

My daughter had a ball putting the First Aid kit together!  This is the perfect Swap for camping trips or for field trips.
My daughter also loved putting the Dunk Bag Swap kit together.  It comes with three wooden pieces to decorate with permanent marker, paint or stickers.  A clothes pin and mesh bag are also included.  This is another Swap that is perfect for Girl Scout camping!

My daughter used permanent marker to decorate her set.

Thank you, Elizabeth, for sending these terrific crafts!  Her kits are perfect for busy leaders who do not have time create their own Girl Scout Swap kits on their own.  The prices are right and so is her shipping.

If you decide to buy something from her, please let Elizabeth know you read about it on this blog!
