Does your child long for mail? Do they love creating art? Would they have fun writing a letter to another child? If so, this swap is for you!

The rules are simple. Your child will be assigned one partner, and will make a drawing/painting/collage/etc and write a letter to that child, then send it in a decorated envelope. Extras are not required; if you send them please keep them to a sensible level. Please give a 5 if the requirements of the swap are met regardless of extras. This could be the start of a pen pal relationship for your child!

To make this more fun, please create a section in your profile for the child who is participating so likes and dislikes, allergies, etc. can be taken into account.

As the idea of the swap is to write a letter and create art, please only sign up if your child is capable of doing these things (a little help from you is fine, but you shouldn't be doing everything yourself). The idea is to have children writing to children, not adults writing to children while using their child's name!

This swap is for the United States only to keep the postage costs down. Newbies with fully-filled-out profiles are welcome but established swappers must have at least a 4.75 rating and no unexplained 1's or 3's within the past year.

The happiness of children is at stake so please don't flake! My daughter and I will angel but I really hope we won't have to on a swap like this!

So sorry the partners were assigned late! Swapbot kept sort of freezing up when I tried to do that. It looks like it finally worked though. This is my first time hosting so I don't know if this is normal or not.

By the way, if you have more than one child, please indicate somewhere in the info about your children as to which one will be in the swap. Thanks :) If you'd rather, you can click the "rate your partner" link and send the person you see there a message letting them know your child's name so the letter can be more personal.
