I have been looking for pen pals for our kids. I want them to experience having a pen pal as I remember how much fun it was growing up. I looked on a couple other sites, but got some responses that just didn't seem right.
I am hoping that this will be a safer way to find pen pals, it is so hard to trust people these days. and it has been really hard to find a pen pal for the kids.

Please let me know if you have kids that would like a pen pal so we can set something up.

I have 3 boys of my own and 2 step daughters.

My boys are 8, 11, & going to be 13.

The youngest girl is probably to young to start writting as she is only 4, my other Step daughter is 10.

Hi everyone. I am looking for a pen pal for my daughter. She is 8. We actually have four kids. Two girls, 8 and 1. And two boys, 6 and 4. My daughter loves to read, write, and draw, so i thought this would be great for her. It would be nice to find another girl around her age from anywhere in the world. So feel free to email me and we will go from there. justthe6ofus@yahoo.com. We are from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

Mornin' and afternoon to everyone! I have a 4 year old little girl who is desperate for some friends to write to. She is learning her letters and loves to draw. If anyone would like to pair up with us, I'd be happy to. If you'd like to be our pen pal, let me know!

I have a 6 year old boy who would be so excited to have a pen pal. I have been looking for a site that provides a safe haven to find pen pals through the u.s. mail for youngsters but have yet been able to find one that is free or pen pals old fashion through the mail. Through the mail I feel that it provides them the excitement of getting mail, helps them practice with their hand writing and grammar. If interested please feel free to email me at newberg27@gmail.com and we can put something together. I would be more than willing to provide prepaid postage as well. Mindy Newberg from Texas.

www.cafemom.com has a very active group for finding kids penpals. Join for free and join the elementary school kids group. There is a post near the top for penpals for kids, just place a free ad. It worked great for my kids.

You might be able to find penpals from around the world through interpals.

[deleted account]

I operate After school care and Holiday programmes.

I thought penpals would be a nice idea for my own children and the children I take care of.

We are in New Zealand and our ages range from 5 to 13 years old.

We would like penpals from other countries.

How do I go about this and find contacts.
Thanks

I just saw your posting from Circle of Moms about your 8 year old daughter looking for a pen pal. My 8 year old, Hayley, is looking for one too. I went on some websites and they all want you to pay to put an ad out for a pen pal...Ridiculous! We are from Connecticut. Hayley is in 2nd grade. She plays soccer, she skiis in the winter, she loves Frozen and my little pony. She loves and music and dancing.



Please let me know if you are interested and we can exchange addresses. Thank you.

Hi there
I have a 9 year old son who would love a penpal from anywhere in the World. Snail mail would be preferred as I think it would encourage him to write and he is a prolific drawer so the lucky recipients may even get pictures. Please please help me out too. I still remember my French penfriend and have her pictures and letters from when I was 11,
Thanks Suze.
