Snowman Girl Scout SWAPS

It's our first year in Girl Scouts and we're prepping for our first camporee. The theme is Snow so we wanted to make SWAPS that reflected that. For those who don't know, SWAPS stands for Small Whatchamacallits Affectionately Pinned Somewhere.

Start by trimming the pipe cleaners to about 2 inches and twist the bottom so that there is a small loop. This will keep the beads on the pipe cleaner. In our Daisy Troop the girls are all 6 or 7 years old so I did this step ahead of time. If you were working with an older Girl Scout Troop, you could let them do this step.

Thread the beads onto the pipe cleaner. 2 white ones, a snowman head, the black sequin and the black pony bead. Once it's all threaded put the pipe cleaner through the hole in the safety pin and bend it to secure.

Look how cute this little guy turned out. Now the only thing left to do is to add a saying and your troop number. Ours said "I'm SNOW glad to be your friend!"

Here are the other Snow themed SWAPS that our troop made for the camporee. I'll be sharing instructions for all of them over the next few weeks.
