My dear friend Mrs. Bee was reminding me the other day about how I participated in a swap when she was pregnant with her daughter, who is now 5 years old. I didn't have any preschoolers at the time, but I did it as sort of a baby gift for her.
The swap was with preschool activities in a bag. Each person participating makes enough bags with one activity for each of the participants. So if there are 10 people in your swap, then you make 10 ABC activity bags, for example. Then everyone gets together to exchange bags. Everyone ends up with a bag for each activity. What a great early child education tool! Mrs. Bee is using these in conjunction with Time4Preschool to help prepare her little ones for kindergarten.
