pen pals, letters, writing, stationery

Pen Pals make a come back

I just had to share with you what my new friend Lisa from  The Wellness Wife  has got going on right now.  I’m hoping you might be interested in having your kids, grand-kids, neighborhood kids be part of this Pen Pal exchange program

Why bother getting your kids to be part of a Pen Pal exchange?

Well, there are many reasons, but here are my top 5:

1. To teach them about the wider world, other than just their backyard; global awareness, geography, culture etc.
2. It allows them to make and give something to someone.
3. By writing a letter my son can work on his cursive/printing skills; his personal signature.
4. Gives a much needed break from all things digital and screen related.
5. Provides the potential for a new friend.

You may be surprised to learn there are several other ways to exchange letters and have a pen pal, even if you are a tad bit older….smile.

What would prevent you or your kids from participating?  Perhaps together we can make it even better? Let me know your ideas/suggestions.

  1. Thanks for featuring my pen pal exchange!

    • I’m excited about what you are doing Lisa; connecting young people through the pen pals. Let me know if there is anything else I can do to help share the idea. In the meantime, I can’t wait to get my son involved and writing to his new pen pal.
