Hello and welcome to my swap. With children, I often hear my kids ask me - 'did I get any mail today?' and ........ well, you know the answer. So, I decided it might be fun to create this swap for those of us with kids, so they can get their own postcard in the mail.

How it will work - when you join - add your child's name (and age) below - when partners are assigned, please address to the child with c/o (care of) - the adult swappers name & address.

Send one postcard - can be naked (no envelope) or in an envelope, senders choice to your partner. You will have one week from swap close to mail your postcards. Pick any theme a child might enjoy - animals, places, cars, Disney, movies, flowers, ect.

Must have at least 1 rated swap to join and have a minimum rating of 4.8 to ensure no one is disappointed. Flakers are not welcome. Swap is international since postage is not expensive to mail a postcard overseas. Let's have a good turn out - should be fun!

If you have any questions - feel free to pm or ask on comment line under swap. Join now! :)

Would it be possible to send handmade postcard? Or printed images? I have no buying option for kids related postcards in my town!

Owen is 9 and loves getting postcards! Thanks for hosting another one of these!

I have a son Stan Jr. who is 9 - would Owen like a pen pal?

viv1972 07/31/2011 #

MichelleWillow - as long as the card is nicely made - a handmade would be ok, but store bought cards are still preferred & recommended .

my daughter is 17, can she join? She loves to get mail and enjoys helping me shop for swaps.

@viv1972 - I'll check once more stores to see what I can find.

Owen says sure! He likes to send postcards and short letters. If we dont get each other as partners, I will pm you my address.

My 8 year old daughter is Caitlyn and my 4 year old son is Austen.

Loving seeing all the 71/72s..i was born '73:0)

A great idea! Im also a member of postcrossing and they always ask where their postcards are! So,finally they will get one.

I just refreshed my postcard stock the other day from the Art Gallery of NSW Australia..i was in postcard heaven!! Have never seen such a huge wall of postcards before. Such a variety and thousands of them!(not that i could afford to buy thousands :0( )

Robin50 - yes, your 17 year old can join, as long as she understands, she will probably get a younger partner
