Busy Bag Swap- Preschool (ages 3-5)
Swap Homepage:http://www.facebook.com/groups/busybagexchange/
Swap Coordinator:Magena22 (contact)
Swap categories: Childrens Items 
Number of people in swap:9
Location:Regional - US
Type:Type 3: Package or craft
Last day to signup/drop:March 27, 2013
Date items must be sent by:May 1, 2013
Number of swap partners:8

Rules: Everyone in the group will trade with everyone else. With that in mind, we will not know the total number of people in the group until it closes on March 26th and partners are assigned. You will need to mail out your busy bags to your group members NO LATER than May 1st. Your group members will give you a rating based upon your meeting this deadline. Please remember - Please remember - a rating of 5 is BEST and a rating of 1 is NOT SENT. Do not confuse these. If someone gets too many 1 ratings, Swap Bot will automatically suspend their account. Please do not sign up for swaps this month if you were not able to meet the deadline last month. Instead, use this month go get ahead. It is always a good idea to keep Post Office receipts to prove that you mailed your packages on time. Taking photos of your busy bags and posting them on the group FB page is also encouraged. Think carefully about the amount of time that you have to dedicate to busy bag swapping this month BEFORE you sign up - once you are signed up, Swap Bot will not allow you to back out. Plan ahead! Try to mail your busy bags out a week before they are due in case an unforseen family emergency, sickness, loss of job, etc. happens. Please consider how much it will cost to mail out your busy bags BEFORE you sign up. Figure approximately $2 per bag US and $3 per bag Canada per package. Estimate at least 5 people that you are mailing to. You should budget $10-15 PER GROUP for POSTAGE ONLY (not supplies) when you sign up. The most popular activities that our group members have made have not been the most expensive ones, but the ones that people take time on and make look really nice. Please take a look at the FB group's photo albums for ideas of what members have been making.

This swap is only open to rated swappers and swappers in the US, due to shipping costs.

A note on ratings:

Please rate a "5" if you received your item on time. You may give "hearts" to any swapper who you felt went above and beyond your expectations or included extra goodies in their packages.

Please rate a "3" if they sent the item but sent it late. Or if they did not follow any of the requirements in this swap as stated above.

Please rate a "1" if you never received an item at all. *Swap-bot DOES allow you to change a rating so if you do receive the item from a swapper later on please change the rating to a "3".

If you are going to be late on the swap but still intend to send the item please COMMUNICATE with your partners. This can help nip ill feelings in the bud. Notifying your partners does not necessarily mean they will give you a "5" rating for contacting them. Most likely you will receive a "3" rating for being late but it is courteous to let your partners know that they will receive an item.

DO NOT give a bad rating for something that you do not like or for quality that is not up to your personal standards. Everybody has a different level of skill and as long as they made the effort to make an item please give them a good rating

Hi. I did a memory matching game in popscile shapes. Sure I send everyone their tracking number? Arrival date said Friday.

I made homemade playdough that I intended to include with my mats, however, it will significantly increase my shipping cost and does not seem to make sense to send as most likely have it at home. I hope this is ok. You will just need to add playdough to play the game with the mats.
