The largest country in South America, Brazil has the greatest variety of wildlife on planet Earth- as many as four million different species. With 25 percent of all the world’s rainforest, native animals like colorful frogs, birds, iguana, jaguars, monkeys, giant anteaters and anaconda snakes will make for interesting displays, crafts and pins for swapping ideas.

A Brazil rainbow loop bracelet or Brazil soccer pins for swapping and soccer uniforms as costumes would also score well for Brazil because this country has won the World Cup a record five times! But soccer is not Brazil’s only sport. Car racing, volleyball, basketball and martial arts also attract large audiences.
