How to Host a Swap Party
How to organize: Make it easy for parents to find what they need; group items by age (baby, toddler, 5 to 7, 8 to 11). From there, sort into categories―clothing, games, books, crafts, toys, dress-up costumes.
What to consider: Be sure the people in the group have children of different ages. You don’t want to get stuck with a room full of bouncy seats and baby monitors when everyone’s kids have already moved on to walking and talking.
