Did anyone else have a pen pal when they were younger? I remember having a one for years growing up and would like to find one for my children.I have tried looking at sites online but who knows who will get our info and be writing back to my child. I Have a 7 yo girl, 5 yo girl and 4 yo boy. If you have a child interested in having and being a pen pal please find and message me on FB, Kristina Martin. My daughter had one but she doesn't write anymore. Its a good way for children to communicate and learn about other parts of the country and how different people can be and grow up. Also helps with their spelling and penmanship, I think its also a fun experience to do in the summer when they are out of school and may not be writing so much. Plus even though its outdated, I think its good for my kids to learn how to address and mail a letter, be responsible.

For my kids I'd like around the same age and maybe same gender.

If anyone is looking for a penpal for their kids go to www.cafemom.com and join the "elementary school kids group" and you can post in that group for free. There is a very active post on top for penpals.

I am really interested for my daughter. She will be 8 next month and I think that pen-pals are a great way of leaning about other areas, practice writing and spelling and great for reading. I am in the USA in MI. Let me know

First, congratulations on wanting a snail mail pen pal for your children. As a retired teacher I can tell you that writing skills in young children are sorely lacking in this electronic age. Writing letters will help to improve their grammar, spelling, thinking and communication skills. A HIGH FIVE to you.

Since you are wary of online sites, I suggest you contact schools in your own area or in a nearby state. Search online for Department of Education on whatever area you choose. If you go outside to another country such sites are often called the Ministry of Education.

Good luck with this endeavor. May their summer be filled with special messages in the mailbox!

I remember penpals. That was so much fun. My kids would love someone to sent letters to. I have a 7 year old daughter, a 5 year old daughter and a nearly 3 year old son. My five year old can't write yet, but she would love to send and recieve letters.

I totally did! I still talk to my pen-pal, although it's via email now - but communicating for 23 years!



I am in Australia, I have a 5 year old boy and a 3 and a half year old girl - so similar ages but opposite gender...



Where are you? There are quite a few Kristina Martins on fb
