We did a book swap with some friends a few days ago! My friend messaged and said her kids had some books they’d love to swap for some other books since the libraries are closed. My kids instantly jumped on that idea. They quickly ran around the house collecting some of their favorite books to loan to their friends.
We took pictures of the books we had to offer and texted them to our friends so they could pick out what they wanted to read. Then we put our books in a bag out by our garage and my friend came by to drop off her books and pick ours up on her way to an errand. It took just a few seconds and no interaction was needed.
Kids are thrilled with having new books to read and it didn’t cost us a thing. They also enjoyed waving at their friends through the windows. I thought this was a great idea that maybe some of you would enjoy as well.
