My son who is 7 is wanting a penpal that he can talk on the phone to,share emails,letters,postcards,and pictures with.He is a very smart kid and is just wanting someone he can be friends with.He has alot of friends at school,but I think this is a great idea for him to get to know other people who don't live here. Who knows...Maybe I can find myself a penpal in the meantime,lol.

you could also think about writing a letter to a member of the military that is stationed in the middle east.... my son did that through his school and LOVED it... and i think the service men and women do too.

Hi ,
My son is seeking a penpal also and I found this after I googled penpals .
My son is 7 turning 8 next month and this week he has been asking about getting a penpal since his classmate has one.

We can do snail mail and this can be great for them

Once I hear from you we can get more information

I love this post!! My son is 7 also and since he has learned how to read and write now he is always writing letters to make believe ppl. We are a Military Family currently living in IL but will be moving to Japan in 2 months. I cannot believe I have not thought of this (maybe I have gotten lost in all this technology..lol) a pen pal would be great for him! Thanks for posting this is a great idea!!

That sounds great. He is very excited to be able to write to everyone. He can't wait to get started.He said he wants to send pictures of himself to his new penpals so that they will know what he looks like,lol. To everyone who is interested,please send me a private email so that I may send you our address and phone number for the parents to be able to get in touch with me.I as well would like to get to know the parents.

He said yes. We know how it feels to have our family being so far away. My mother in law lives in San Francisco(an hour from us) and my family lives in Texas.

Hello, would he mind having a girl, age 8, as a pen pal? Let me know, I think it would be great for her to have someone to correspond with. She is an only child, and very friendly, but we live 3 hours from family and having a pen pal might be cool.
