Write Pen Pal Letters

Does your child have a cousin or friend who lives out of state and is about his age? Encourage them to become pen pals. Discuss what kinds of information to share when writing letters, and how to ask questions that necessitate a direct response. Talk about replying in a timely manner, as well, in order to maintain the pen pal relationship.
