I have a 7 year old son and a 7 year old step daughter that I've been trying to find a pen pal for both of them. All the pen pal sites are for email and at that age, I think they would better better off with snail mail so they can work on their spelling and hand writing. If anyone's interested, please let me know.

That is very cool! I can't help, just wanted to encourage you to do it. Something that I was very pleased to know is that it's allowed to put stickers on the envelope, as long as it doesn't interfere with reading the address or stamps.

I was a huge letter-writer when I was a kid. I had penpals in Mexico, Switzerland, and in other provinces. But these were all kids that I had met, and it wasn't a formal thing, it was more "Now we've met and we'll be friends forever and how will we ever bear our separation?! Angst! Handwringing!" and most of them went on for years before petering out.

Why don't you suggest it to his teacher? He/she may be able to set something like that up.

Where do you live? I have a 6 year old girl.
