My 7 year old son really enjoyed the postcard swap for kids that we just completed (Thank you whiteway!) and so both he and I thought it would be a great idea if we could take it one step further.

In this swap our kids will send a letter to their partners and if all goes well they can continue to correspond with each other and enjoy learning about other places and cultures.

Thanks whiteway! As I said it was your postcard swap that inspired me! My son, Kosta loved writing to different kids and now waits eagerly for the postman to deliver his postcards!

great idea...my daughter is only 3 1/2 so not quite old enough yet, but i know when she is, this will be great for her. She loves when I get mail to see if there are any stickers in it!

My son is 9 years old and needs a penpal. At school, he is sharing notes with his teacher to improve his writing and he would love to do this with another child.

I have an almost 9 (in Jan) boy Sam, and a daughter Hannah, that will be 12 in May that would love to have some penpals! I have a soon to be six year old Rachel, that loves to get mail and is getting pretty good at writing if anyone would be interested in her little kindergartners world. Thanks.

My daughter who is 7, almost 8, would also like a pen pal. When I asked her the first time, she didn't know what a pen pal is. She does tend to draw pretty pictures in her cards and letters

I just sign up. I would love my super smart 5 year old to do this. What fun! She loves reading and writing, learning new things and most of all getting Mail!!!!!

I have two kids who would like penpals. Isabelle is 7 & very girly (loves art, horses, cooking, dressing up) & is quite good with writing independently. Hugo is 6 & has just finished kindergarten. He loves building things, sport, animals & adventures. His letters will be much shorter but he is very excited about writing to someone.

My daughter just finished writing her 2 letters to her penpals in Australia and Virginia. She is 5 so her letters are shorter and she is still mastering writing her letters perfectly (but did VERY WELL). This is our first swap here so I am hoping it is what was expected. She LOVED doing it and is looking forward to a response. We are mailing them today! Thank you. This has been a great experience. -Jennifer
