Pen Pals!

Sorry for being so MIA!  I have been soaking up the summer days with my family inlcuding camping!  I hope that all of your are enjoying your summer!

I wanted to share with you a new activity that we are starting!  Pen Pals!  We have cousins that live all over and we do not get to see them much at all.  So, I thought that it would be fun for my kiddos to get to know some of them by being pen pals. 

We wanted to do something special for them for our first correspondance. So, where did I turn?  To Pinterest, of course! Here is a photo of our kits that we created for our cousins! You can get the printable label and poem here!




We also included a fun information sheet that was also found on Pinterest.
You can get one too, here!

Do you do pen pals with your kiddos or in the classroom?  I would love to hear about it!

What a cute idea! I've thought about doing "pen pals" before, but wasn't sure how to go about doing it. I'd love to do something like this and even skype with our pals! How cool would that be?!

It would be fun to do penpals with Kindergarten classes. There are so many K bloggers that would probably like to do it. Just not sure how to arrange it all!

Hi! I just read your post about pen pals and I would love to find a Kindergarten class to write back and forth with this school year- I teach K in Kansas City. Please e mail me if interested (anyone!)

Thank you for the comments! I, too have always thought about classroom pen pals. I am moving to first grade next year. The possibilities! Megan- Did you find a class for pen pals yet?
