Hi there,

 

I am an unschooling parent of two boys ages 7 and 5, living in the UK and would like to find a penpal for my oldest son.  He doesn't write much yet but I think it would be really nice for him to receive post from the US, even if it's a few lines!

 

His main interests are Lego, planes (especially WWII planes), xbox and computer games to name but a few.

 

Would love to hear from anyone who is interested!

 

Justine

I think my daughter would be interested in having a penpal in the UK. :) They might not have many interests in common, but, you never know. DD is 6, can write...sort of..., and can read a little better than write.  She enjoys anything artistic, reading, dictating stories, and camping.  How should we proceed?

My oldest DS is going to turn 7 this month.  I am sure he would love to have a pen pal.  He isn't the best at writing and I think a pen pal would be reason enough for him to want to practice.  His main interest are the Wii, DS, finding out reasons to why things are the way are, Pokémon and going outside.  PM me if you would like to exchange information.

Hi Michelle,

 

Sorry for the late reply.  My son is specifically looking for a boy penpal - sorry, I should have mentioned that.

 

Thanks anyway, Justine

My 7 year old son would be interested, too!  You can PM me your details if you are still looking for one.  :)  He is into Legos, Star Wars, Legos, Legos, and more Legos.  lol.
