happy summer kids swap! :)

Summer is here.
Beach & pool season is upon us.
The flip-flops are on our feet.
The kids are home from school.
My child adores getting mail.
{And I'm sure your kids do, as well.}

Let's have a swap! :)
Let's treat our kids to a little summer fun-in-a-box! The price point for each box should be around $15, and pack each box with fabulous summer goodies: beach buckets, shovels, books, squirt guns, bubbles, coloring books, summer crafts, stickers, stuffed animals, flip-flops, you name it! As long as it has a summer theme and is appropriare for your partner's child, go for it! Each child will be assigned one partner, so if you have more than one child, be prepared to do more than one box! It is so special for kids to have their own something to open, something that is all for them, so let's really try to make this as fantastic as possible. Wrap the goodies creatively, add in little notes, whatever you can to make sure the recipient of your swap box is over-the-moon. :)
{Or should I say over-the-sun since it's summer!?! :) }

Sign ups will be open until June 19th, and I will email partners out on the 20th. Then you will have until June 30th to mail your swap box. :)
