The Great Mail Swap...

Sign Ups for Mail Swap #2 are open NOW!


Whenever I check the mailbox Ryder is keen to check if there is any mail for him, especially now that he can recognise his own name. I know that I am not alone in this situation, most kids love getting mail, & I would be excited too if the mail I received didn't involve bills!

Anyway, a while ago this chick got me thinking about a mail swap for the kidlets, so here is the idea.

Mail Swap

Every child who signs up must send a postcard OR letter to 5 other swappers.

The mail doesn't have to be over the top, it could be a homemade postcard or one of your hometown. It could be a picture that your child has drawn or coloured in or just a few sentences written by themselves or you depending on their age.

Sign ups close Monday the 23rd of March & all mail must be sent by Monday the 6th of April.

You do not need to have a blog to play along.

Sign ups are open to everyone, so please be prepared to post overseas.

To sign up please email me with your child's name & address

Once sign ups have closed I will email you the details of the 5 kids that you need to send a letter to. Any questions, just ask or leave a comment!

My kids just participated in and art card swap and they loved it. I think it is a great idea and the excitement when there is something in the letterbox for them is over the top.

My daughter loves it when letters arrive addressed to her. It's always exciting. She recently opened her own bank account and now looks forward to her letter from NAB every quarter! A letter and art swap is a great idea. We'd love to play.

Fantastic idea! Please count us in. The creating and posting of letters is just as much fun to littlies as receiving them. I'll send our info.

Is there an age limit to it? Mine are in the mid to upper sections of primary school but I think would love to play along.

I just have to check with my sister first but I'm pretty sure my nephew would love to play along, and it's something he could make while he's at my house.
