My Brownie troop is working on their Making Friends badge.


One of the things they are doing to earn this badge is meeting up with another local troop and trading Swap-Its. Swap-its are little handmade trinkets that the girls trade with each other, usually attached to a vest with a pin or to a wall hanging for display. My daughter loved hers last year from Camporee so much, she would take them out periodically, spreading them out on her bed and poring over each one.

Ours have a Halloween theme for this particular swap.


They are made of 2 cotton balls, a googly eye, a jewelry pouch, safety pin, and a printout that I created in PhotoShop and punched out with a square punch. If you want the printout, I’m happy to email you a PDF. (Without our troop #, obviously!)

What kind of swap-its does your troop do?

    Hi- My daughter’s junior troop is going to camp this weekend and we need to bring Halloween swaps to share. These would be perfect. Can you e-mail me the sheet for the tags? Thanks.

      Thank you so much!! Did you figure out a way to fill the page with these to reduce paper waste? I’m not particularly computer savvy.

      Thanks, Traci

      Never mind, my husband was able to do it at work and send it back to me to print.

      Thanks again for the PDF.
