Default Kids RAKs, Want to exchange?

I went to the mailbox with my 3yo today, and once again she was sent into a depression by the lack of mail for herself. I used to send her a card 1x a month, but she started getting suspicious since she'd see me making it a couple days before. Would anyone like to exchange kiddy RAKs? I'd be happy to send one out to your little(or not so little or furbaby) in exchange. Please PM me.
Thanks!

Ohhhhh, what a great idea I have 3 kids who LOVE mail! A 3 yo dd, and 6 and 8 year ds. If someone with 3 kiddos wants to play along I think that'd be FUN

Yes!! I would love to be involved in this.

My son is 9 years old, and with all the swaps that I make and get back, he's a bit jealous too.

How will this work?

Any moms of boys out there who want to exchange?

Hey, this sounds really good to me....I have a 8y/o DD that gets mad when she doesn't get mail and I do . I'm not too sure about my 12 y/o DS yet....he's getting really hard to read sometimes. Must be the hormones starting to work.. Count me in......

I was just reading all the posts, and would like to participate, but wanted to offer a bit of a diferent perspective (I think) What about having the kids make the cards and send to each other like a pen pal? I ask because my 10 yr old son loves making cards, and always wants to make them, plus I know he would be really interested in having a pal somewhere else. If anyone would be intersted let me know.

Default Great idea!

I'm am BRAND NEW to SCS but I've heard raving reviews from friends. This is my first post and I was so excited to read this. My kids would LOVE to get mail, especially my daughter. She is 6 and my son is 9. I think having THEM make the cards is a great idea! She loves making cards with me and always wants to send them out. And she'd love to get mail in return. Count me in. Just let me know how this works!

I just put a kid's swap on the board! No restrictions except to have fun and be creative and I'll try to divide it by age once we get a response!

Due by May 1st and I'll mail as soon as they are received!

I'm putting together a kids RAK list, it may take a couple of days, I thought I 'd list the kidzs by sex & age so we could match them up. I'll also list Mom's SCS name so we can PM for the SM address. Either we can make the cards(for the young ones), or let them make the cards(for the ones we trust to stamp). Sound good? Try to send out a card 1x per month, please. if your kiddos go more than one month without a card, PM me I'll try to get one out right away.

I also have a 3 year old son who won't open any of the cards his grandparents sent him for Easter. He just refuses. He's going through the terrible threes!

I want to play! My son is 4 and loves checking the mail! He gets so excited when I tell him there is something in the mail for him. Even if it's a catalog, he's happy! Think how happy he would be if he started getting cards!

I will post the list in the next couple of days. I'll probably make it a new topic & asky that it be "sticky-ed" so it stays at the top.
