My ds is 7.5 and would love to have a penpal. We unschool, he isn't too interested in learning to read and write so his reading and writing skills are not that great, but I think if he had someone he could send letters back and forth with, it would make it that much more fun. He loves Star Wars and Lego, wildlife/nature, and playing with friends. Anyone out there with a similar age kid who wants a penpal? Feel free to send me a PM :)
Or, are there any safe websites to go and get hooked up with a penpal?
