How often do your children get personal mail? Maybe the occasional birthday party invitation or a birthday card, right? I know my kids love getting their own mail, really, who doesn't?

I am setting up this swap for our children.

I am asking that each participant send (1) postcard to (5) different kiddos. Try to choose a cute, colorful or fun postcard. It can be the place you live, somewhere you've visited or just something you think is clever. Please include a short note, perhaps wishing them a happy summer vacation (or winter, depending on where in the world you hail from!) Tell them about the postcard, why you chose it, etc. It's up to you, but please be appropriate. Remember folks will be sending to your child/ren as well!

When you join this swap, please post your child/rens names or initials if you are more comfortable with that as well as their age/s.

With any luck, this swap will be a success and our children will get some happy mail from around the world. If it all plays out the way I hope, I will set up other swaps like this.

All are welcome, I will angel if necessary, but please don't flake on the kiddos!

Happy Swapping!!

I am just including my son in this swap as my daughter is included on another I am hosting. His name is Owen and he is 9. :-)

Can I join this swap even if I don't have any children of my own? I have a 14 year old young lady that helps me out once or twice a month at church and she would love to get some postcards. This swap seems like it would be a fun swap and I would love to participate in it.

Hey this is great, my son was just saying how he'd like to do a kids swap-bot! Thanks for hosting!

heather1971 06/17/2011 #

Absolutely, moonrose! Thanks for joining, all! The thought popped into my head this morning and I jumped on the idea...

heather1971 06/17/2011 #

Also @ moonrose, check out the other swap I am hosting...this might be GREAT for your special helper!

moonrose 06/17/2011 #

Thank you, Heather. I didn't want to just assume that you would be okay with me joining. The postcards are for Kirstie, and I forgot that she just turned 15 the other day. Sorry! To make sure the postcards get to my P.O. Box safely, please use my name and address when you're filling out the address section. However, if you want to put her name in the section you use to write a message, that would be totally acceptable.

Not a problem, Lisa!

SierraRN01 06/20/2011 #

Great idea. My daughter is SO bummed that she can't be on Swap-Bot because she's too young. My two daughters are: Gabriella (12) & Victoria (9). Thanks.

SierraRN01 06/21/2011 #

I get it now! I am looking forward to this.

Adventurer 06/21/2011 #

Are we meant to put just one name or can we list all our children ?

SecretSerendipity 06/22/2011 #

My daughter loves when I find swaps for her on here!!! Her name is Kelcey and she is 14..... She is not a girly girl though, as one of her rules are she has a strict, No pink, no ruffles and no dress policy!!! LOL!!

I have 3 kiddos. Kyle is 13 and into video games and army and almost girls. Taylor turned 11 on Father's day and she s a tom-boy and likes to do crafts too. Rylie is 8 and she a definitely a girlie girl! They are all so different. I thought this would be a cute idea and maybe they could find a penpal... who knows.

heather1971 06/22/2011 #

To Adventurer and anyone else.... If you want to PC's to go to one child, list one child. If you'd like them to come addressed to all of your children, feel free to include them all.

LFPolchin84 06/23/2011 #

Please only include Steven. It something comes addressed to both him and his sister she will blow a gasket!

indgomom 06/26/2011 #

I have two kids: Bennett is 10, and Haley Rose is 5. A PC to both kids, or a PC to each child is fine, either way my partner wants to do it! Thanks! :)

lizzmathwhiz 06/27/2011 #

My little cousins have seen my boyfriend and I on swapbot and love it. :) Madison is 8, going on 16. She loves pop music and the color pink. Jacob, 7, loves video games and tacos. Taco is his favorite word.

Please PM me for their address as it is different than mine. Thanks, Lizz.

virgoveggie 06/28/2011 #

Oh! I almost forgot! My son's name is Jude, he is 10! :)

Faithygirl 06/30/2011 #
