Girl Scout World Thinking Day Russia SWAPS

First Post... Sorry if it's confusing.

For Girl Scouts World Thinking Day our troop chose Russia. Trying to figure out a SWAP for 6th graders to make for 125 girls in less than an hour (plus lots of other things going on too) was difficult - so I chose Salt Dough Ornaments.

We did the basic recipe:
2C Flour
2C Salt
1/2 C Warm Water

We then cut them (using shot glasses - only thing I had that was the correct size) and then used Quicky Dry Ink to stamp a Babushka onto each circle. Then we cooked for 5 hours at 200 degrees in the oven. Then we trimmed the sides and colored with sharpies.

That's it. Pretty easy and oh so cheap! I'm all about the cheap SWAP! We're saving for New York - so no time to waste it!


  1. I just came across this on Pintrest...I can't wait to look at the rest of your blog. I am a second year leader and have a brownie troop. Can you tell me where you purchased your stamp?

  2. This looks Awesome and my Juniors just picked Russia for this years Thinking Day!! How thin/thick did you make these? Were they to heavy to have girls pin on their sash/vest?
