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 Plus even though its outdated, I think its good for my kids to learn how to address and mail a letter, be responsible.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.
