    Homeschool Shoebox Swap - This is a list for homeschool families to swap "shoeboxes" that reflect their geographical area and their family.

    We do a list once a month(on the 2 or 3 of the month). After that list closes, it can take a week or so to put the list together because of large number of people swapping. So you should have your swap partner by the 10th of the month. We swap inexpensive packages that contain items that are representative of where we live. Let the kids make a card or a picture of your house, or share something they love about their area. Include some of the more interesting points about where you live and about you; maps, postcards, little things that show what you love about where you live. Let the kids get creative. It can be a lot of fun and educational. Pick up things on a nature walk; a cool rock, shell, pine cones, etc.(But, do not transport things that could cause an infestation. Check w/postal service)

    *This is a great way to learn geography, and learn about your own area at the same time.

    *When you join, you do not select no mail. Select special notices instead.***If you do select "no mail", it will be changed to "special Notices"*** Special Notices means you will get a copy of the swap list. No mail means you wont.

    *Also, we've had to make it a rule that if you have 3 failed swaps, as in you don't send a package, and someone else complains,or you drop out of 3 swaps after the list comes out, then you will be removed from the list.

    This is only fun if everyone involved actually does what they say they will.Signing up for a swap is a commitment. Things do come up,that's understandable, but it shouldn't be a habit.

    ABSOLUTELY NO SPAM!! This will get you removed/banned.(yes reasonable sig lines are okay).

    *UPON JOINING, PLEASE SUBMIT YOUR LOCATION WITH YOUR MEMBERSHIP REQUEST. Then, to get started, follow the instructions in the email that will be sent to you upon your memberships approval. IF YOU DO NOT DO THIS, YOU ARE NOT SWAPPING!!!!
