Pen Pal, anyone?

My kids would love pen-pals. I have a 12-year-old daughter and an 8-year-old son who would love a pen-pal. Does anyone out there have kids their ages looking for a pen-pal, too?

  • I was just thinking of this the other day. We used to do it in elementary school when I was growing up and it was so much fun. You don't hear to much about it these days because of all the horrible things that have been apparent in the news, so nobody wants to give out home address info. Plus the kids are all taught not to for safety issues. Times Suck.

  • When I was in 4th grade my geograpy class had a class in another state that we were pen pals with the letters got sent to the school and distributed from there so personal information was not given out. You might contact your school and see if this could be a possibility.

  • I think that's a great idea! Kids of all ages love to get mail. My oldest 2 are the same ages (11yo boy and 8yo boy). If you are interested in exchanging between our kids, send me a PM.
