Teen Back 2 School Swap~~~USA ONLY~~~Newbies welco
Swap Coordinator:Cupcakeit (contact)
Swap categories: Themed  Newbie  Childrens Items 
Number of people in swap:9
Last day to signup/drop:August 30, 2008
Date items must be sent by:September 10, 2008
Number of swap partners:1

I myself am a newbie...so newbies are welcome, but you must have a completed profile page...please don't be a flake!

My first swap my son helped me (he's 12) and I thought it would be another horrible shopping adventure..but he totally got into it, trying to stay on a budget and shopping for someone we didn't know....it was a really fun experience, so I thought why not get the teens involved.

This is a back 2 school swap for pre-teens, tweens, and teens in the U.S. only please. You know how they are always wanting that "cool" notebook, pen or pencil that is not really what the teachers require, here is a great chance for them to get them. Spending limit is $10.00 to $12.00, I thought that was part of the fun for him, and it will help them to learn about staying in a budget. I found great stuff for B2S at the dollar store, but you can go anywhere. Once you join please post a comment below or on your profile page regarding your childs age and gender and maybe what their "favs" are right now. Please try to keep it fun and unique, like no yellow number twos ;-)!

I think it would also be great for each teen to write their swap partner a note telling them their name, what and why they picked what they picked, and maybe where they go to school or something...not a requirement, just something fun for them to share.

Please remember I am a newbie too, so if I missed something in the description or you need more 411, please just shoot me a mail.

I think this will be a fun swap!! Also, if you are outside of the United States, I will have to remove you...or if you don't have a profile or have any no-sends I will remove you...remember kids are involved, so please make sure you want to do this before joining. Thanks!!

My daughter is 14, starting high school. She is very much into anime/manga, Pirates, theatre, and "goth/punk" (so skulls, etc. are a safe bet). She also loves Japanese and British culture.

Dibrittain 08/17/2008 #

My Daughter is going on 13. She loves Manga into reading them online and books. Loves some skulls and crossbones. Joe Jonas Brothers is her fave guy. Black and Pink. Collecting shot glasses. She likes rap to emo style. So anything is pretty cool she is not too girlie but love to put her hair up in ponytail and the snap clips a plus. since her hair is multi layered. Doodle stuff is good. Locker decoration stuff.

My oldest son is 14 and loves all things outdoors-hunting, fishing, camping, etc.... My daughter is 13 and love anything girly and bright colored, lots of pink, black, purple or anything dance related. My youngest son is 12 and likes legos, hot wheels, typical boy stuff. We homeschool so we have a lot of flexibility in what we can use. We do have need of a good compass for math or maybe a small periodic table of elements but are open to pretty much anything. I can't wait to go shopping!

RevJenn 08/30/2008 #

it is the 31st when do we get our assignments?

Cupcakeit 08/31/2008 #

yes, I just assigned partners. Hope everybody has a really fun time doing this...I can't wait!!

Cupcakeit 08/31/2008 #

I don't know if it's proper swap etiquette, but since we are a small swap....I thought it might be OK to post here your partner....also it would probably be a good idea (heard from another swapper) to make sure that you identify your swap to your partner when mailing, as many people are in a lot swaps at once.

I got Dibrittrain and can't wait to go shopping for Beth!! so FUN!! WOOHOO :-)

LadyT 08/31/2008 #

My son is 16 and is in 11th grade - he started last Wednesday. He is into rock-climbing, hip-hop dance and snowboarding . . although didn't want any school supplies depicting any of these this year. His favorite colors are black & green. He likes mechanical pencils and cool pens. His backpack is orange plaid and Burton brand.

Wordsnob 08/31/2008 #

Also, my daughter currently is all about fun buttons (pins) that she can put all over her messenger bag!

jmmessina3 08/31/2008 #

Ok I have a question about my swap partner She has 2 children listed am I buying something for each of them or one or the other Please advise Id like to ship this out on Tuesday after the holiday Thanks Melissa

Cupcakeit 08/31/2008 #

Jmmessina3~~~~I would contact your partner, and ask her if she wants you to split your money between them or concentrate on just one child. Hope everyone is having fun!! We had fun today shopping!!

AuntieM 09/ 1/2008 #

Thanx, Michelle
