There should not be more than a 1/4" of sand in the bottom.  Put 3 sea shells in the bag along with a marble (beach ball).  Cut a piece of the terry cloth to 1"x2" size and slide it into the bag. Put on crab in the bag, place it on the “towel” (this will help keep it from sliding down into the sand)

his Swap can be made two ways: As a “Pirates, Ahoy” swap for a pirate theme or, by adding the miniature book “Treasure Island”, make into a book theme using the Treasure Island printouts.

Print out all the files for the flag, ship, and map (and book if doing the book theme). Cut out each item and place in the bag.  If making the book, fold along all lines and glue tabs to make a "box" of the book.  Place in bag. Using a piece of straw, roll the map around the straw, remove the straw, and then place the rolled map into the bag. Add three of the gold coins.  Staple the Pirates tag to the top of the bag.
