2009 Postcard Swap

This will be the same as last years swap again, back by popular request, I loved this swap too because it gave us some new snack recipes to try, such as these, and these .

The idea is to send and receive 5 postcards. On the back of each postcard will be an easy to prepare snack originating or popular from the country of origin of the postcard. Therefore if you send a postcard from Mexico it should have a Mexican snack, a Russian postcard should have a Russian snack.
That is 5 cards to 5 different people.
You an use the same recipe on every card - that is the easy way or different ones on each card if you like.
If you want to send 10 cards please tell me when you sign up.

  1. The snack must match the country of the postcard (this doesn't need to be where you live and you can send different cards, not all from the same country if you like)
  2. The snack must be simple and easy enough for a child to prepare on their own or with little assistance from an adult.
  3. The ingredients should be things easily obtainable worldwide or have suggestions of alternative ingredients.
  4. Preferably healthy snacks!
  5. The swap will close March 15th, swap partners email addresses will be sent out the following couple of days, postcards must be posted by April 1st.

If you would like participate please send an email to

montessori.swapshop at gmail dot com

please put 2009 POSTCARD SNACK SWAP in the subject bar.

I also need...
  1. your name
  2. the country where your postcard/snack is from (doesn't need to be where you live)
  3. email address
I will try and mix up the partners so that you get a good mix of countries but of course it depends on where people sign up from.

Joining swaps like this is taking a leap in faith and hoping that your swap partners are honest, kind people too. I can not be held responsible for swaps that don't work but I would like to know if you have had any problems with swap partners.

So, come on, sign up....
