LEO Swaps
Many LEO participants enjoy bringing swaps to trade. If you are new to LEO (or to swapping) here is some
information and ideas for you about swaps.

What is a SWAP?                             Share With A Pal
                                            Something With A Pin
                                            Special Watchamacallit Affectionately Pinned Somewhere

Swaps are little things girls and leaders make to trade with each other. The idea of swaps was started at the
original National Roundup Conferences. At that time, a swap was a little remembrance that one Girl Scout
gave to another. Swaps are hand made, thus the Girl Scout is giving a part of herself to show friendship.
Swapping is a good way of starting correspondence and for this reason you can have your name, address, or
email attached. It is not necessary to spend a lot of money on swaps. Most swaps are made with pins
attached so they can be pinned onto a camp shirt or hat. Most people make them out of scraps or natural
materials. They may be simple, complex, expensive, or inexpensive, whatever the creator desires. Each
person should decide how many swaps to make, that will also determine how many are received. Swaps can
be made all the same, or each one can be different. If you are making swaps for an event, each troop should
make different swaps so the girls are not limited in trading. If you are making swaps in your troop, give the
girls an assortment of beads, small wooden shapes, paints, markers, ribbons, felt, chenille stems, etc. and let
their imaginations go wild. Swaps are usually only one to two inches. The girls should remember to create
their swaps with a pin attached. Swaps are traditionally pinned on a swap hat. This hat could be part of
your troop identification. Although bucket hats are most often seen, painter’s caps are an inexpensive
alternative. Remember that swaps are made with love, given with love, as tokens of friendship. It’s important
to stress that they are tokens, and never say "oh that's ugly I don't want to swap". It’s always nice to put your
name, troop number, and the name/date of the event on the back of the swap to recall wonderful memories.
The above information was sent to Scouting Links by Eileen S. which she obtained from an online post in
January 1996 by Amanda Sass of the Nation's Capitol Council.

Swap Etiquette: Put all the swaps that you want to trade on a piece of cloth, felt, or a bandana that you can
pin to your left side. That way people will know what you have, and that those are the ones you want to trade.
You can also put the swaps in a Ziploc bag, and pin that on or carry it. Your keepers should go on your hat,
your right side, or in your pocket or bag. It is not polite to refuse to swap. Also, it is rude to trade away a swap
you received from someone else, as if it wasn’t “good enough” to keep. You should only trade away swaps
you have made yourself.

Great Web sites to get you started with swap information and ideas:

                                                GOOD LUCK and HAPPY SWAPPING !
