Orthodox Children’s Ornament Swap

Last year we had our first annual Orthodox Children’s Swap. We swapped books for the children and they each included a handmade card in their package. It was a lot of fun and we shared some terrific books and cards!

This year, I’d like to do an ornament swap. The way it will work is depending on the number of participants we will divide into groups and swap within our group. So plan on making about 6 or so ornaments. If there aren’t that many people who sign up we’ll just all swap with each other.

The rules:

01. Each child will make enough ornaments to send one to each member of his/her group. ORNAMENTS MUST BE HANDMADE.

02. Include a card (handmade or not) making sure that their name is legible.

03. Adding other trinkets, candies, stickers, etc is a nice gesture but it is not required.

04. Packages must be postmarked by Friday, December 11, 2009 to ensure time for the children to enjoy their ornaments before Christmas.

If you would like to participate please sign up a.s.a.p. as I will be posting partners on Friday to give one full week to make the ornaments!
