I guess here are my kids (that are old enough to appreciate penpals!)
dd #1 is 8yo and loves reading, Harry Potter, karate, and fairies.
ds is 7yo and loves dragons, dinosaurs, karate, Harry Potter, Eragon, and playing outside.
dd #2 is 4yo and loves reading with me, writing letters, cats, and karate.
4 year old girl loves reading, drawing, learning Spanish, her cat, getting into bird watching and other hobbies.
my son is newly 5. he doesn't write notes at all - but he can draw pictures...plus i can dictate for him. he loves power rangers, pokemon, bakugan, etc. he'll also include random things in his letters.
DD1- 11( almost ) Harry potter, American girl, pokemon, webkinz, writing, books/reading
DD2- 8 , american girl, webkinz, fairies, harry potter
DS-6 doesn't really write yet but this would be great to get him into it, so his letters might be short- nerf guns, policemen, fireman, super heros, harry potter, dirt lol
He always includes a small drawing or piece of art on those 'artists trading cards' and maybe a sticker or pressed flower or something like that. He's into legos, harry potter, curcuits/soldering, taking apart things, making stuff out of other stuff, biking, skating, electronic music, reading, audio books, cats, rough-housing with his little brother, mythbusters and so on. oh and he spells better than me .
so how does this work? and why do i feel like i just wrote a personal add for my kid?
ds#1 is 6 (7 in july) and loves lego, spys, secret agents, harry potter, swiss family robinson, knights and ninjas.
ds#2 is 3 - he can't write but sure can dictate and LOVES to send and receive mail! he loves all things his big brother likes as well as franklin stories, cooking and grama!
we live on the west coast of canada.
If there is a better thread, point me!
I babysit a 7 yo and we could really use something to do together during the days. He likes Indian Jones, creepy crawlies (bugs snakes) legos, and messes.
I also am mama of DS who is 2 in April and just likes paper! Snail mail is always fun to get, maybe the kids could exchange drawings or something.
