1. Scouts create a display with facts/pictures on the country and decorate your table. Bring a tablecloth!

2. Bring your country flag – make one from cloth or poster board for the flag ceremony.

3. Dress in native costume – optional (always the cutest part!)

4. A passport for each girl (name and troop # on each). Update image to the flag for your country. Passport should be on a string around the neck – long enough to reach table for stamps.

5. Stamp and ink pad to stamp the passports. Stickers are fine too.

6. Bites – small food or drink samples from your country (approximately 150-200). Please label any items with peanuts or tree nuts.

7. Serving utensils (i.e. toothpicks, spoons, paper towels, napkins, cups).

8. SWAPS – a crafted pin to represent your country (approx. 10 -15 per scout) Remember to bring something to carry your SWAPS. Troops larger than 10 scouts should choose two different SWAP types.
