    Cool Girl Scout Swaps

    I'm working on my swaps for day camp. This year's theme is "Under the Sea".

    I liked the idea of recycling and using what was already at the house. I have an idea to combine the cups from egg cartons and styrofoam packing pieces to make turtles.

    I have completed two prototypes. Spouse wasn't too sure about the turtleness of the egg cups but has looked at the models and thinks they might be OK.

    What do you all think? And do you have ideas for designs to put on the shell portion?

    I like the big eyes.

    You have used triangles and spirals on the shells. Circles and squares would also be easy to mark. Waves would fit the theme. Fish (like the letter alpha) would be easy to draw too, and stars for starfish.

    They are very cute Sluggy.

    I think the girls will love them.

    My daughter thought they were adorable.

    Knocka, Sue, Spidey, Jean, and Anne, thank you for the encouragement on the turtle production. Anne, I'm really glad your daughter liked them as she appears (on your Twe) to be in the target age group.

    The last couple of days have been spent on other camp prep. One of the things was nametags for staff not assigned to a camper unit. The tags are so shiny, it was hard to get a good picture.

    Those are really good name tags - colourful to stand out, clear so that the name can be actually read, and individual with the personal details on each one. Advertise the quality of the name tags and you might get more volunteers

    I'm guessing that a shell is for an older girl and an octopus is for an adult. You might need to create extras for swaps (besides your turtles). With all the detailed preparation the camp should go well.

    I too like the detail on each individual one. That will be exciting for everyone. You put a lot of thought and love in your work. It shows.
