Activity Days PENPAL

Is now closed---Due to Me getting a new calling! 
Okay by the raise of hands who is ready for summer to be here? Anyone with kids counting down the days, hours & minutes till its here? Well I sure am, with my five kids there are days I hope that everyone is fed dinner and just has their teeth brushed for the day! Okay its not that bad but hey my daily calendar for the month of may looks like my three year old colored all over it! WOW! BUSY BUSY! So I had to plan and execute a MOMMY and ME dinner for all the girls and their moms- We had almost 60 People there, it turn out great ! (Pictures are almost done) So in other words Ive been very very busy! I had a great Activity Days leader email me and give me a great idea (HER IDEA) ! For the summer/fall I thought it would be great to start an Activity Days PENPAL program with your girls . You could teach your girls some writing/letter skills (since they are almost non existent these days with computers) and they would receive a letter from another girl, maybe a picture, and a note, story or poem on some pretty paper and someone to get to know that is their same age!

(Plus this could pass of DEVELOPING TALENTS #3)

Email Me at :

1- The number of girls you have in your group
2- The girls ages
3- Where you live

I will send you an email with another ACTIVITY day leaders email and you can coordinate with the other Activity day leader your address and how many girls you have and if you want to send pictures with your letters or not.

RULES: 1- Please do not give out or let the girls give out their address, phone number or email to protect them and their privacy....
2- Lets just stick to all the letters being sent to the leader of the group.

I think this would be really FUN and the girls will love it! Please send pictures of the process and I will display them here! ( I can cover their faces for privacy if needed)



  1. I like this idea, but I'd want to wait until colder weather is here to do it... it's too nice to spend time inside writing letters! Lemme talk to my companion...

  2. I LOVE this idea! For some reason I can't get the email link to work. We have 14 girls, ages 10 and 11, and we live in Littleton, CO. Would you email me?


  3. I also love this idea a lot, but I am with AmberLou on this one. I would love to do this starting in the fall. I have 30 girls and live in Fort Collins Colorado.

    Thanks, Shari

  4. I think this is a great idea. I will be getting back with you after I talk with my girls and partner. I am not sure how many will be around for the summer.....

  5. I can't get the email link to work either. Thanks for this blog, it is SUPER helpful for me! I'm up for doing it anytime. We have 18 girls and we're in Northern CA. My email is Thanks a bunch!

  6. I love this idea! And, I would be happy to start anytime. I'm also having email link issues, but I have my email address in my profile.

  7. Love this idea, but i only have 5 girls. so I'd like to be linked with someone who has a small group. my email: hotpinkpansy(at)gmail(dot)com

  8. I love this idea! I think the girls would love it! I think they need to still write on paper instead of texting or emailing all the time. Bring on writing letters! I have 15 girls, my email is courtneymort(at)gmail(dot)com

  9. I tried to email but not sure if it worked. We would be so excited to be able to have the girls communicate with what is becoming a lost art. We live in West Jordan, UT. 13 girls ages 10-11.
    thnak you for "hooking us up!"

  10. I think I have some girls who would love this! Our group is small too. Only 8 (of which I think 6 or 7 will participate)

    We are outside of St Louis MO


  11. This sounds like fun. I have 12-13 girls, from 8 11 years old. We live in magna , UT. email me at The girls have apretty busy summer schedule so maybe in august/september would work better for us, if there are others groups would like to do that!!

  12. I have 15 girls, 10-11yrs old & we'd also love to do this. I live in McKinney, TX. mcdsunrise(at)msn(dot)com

  13. Hello,I emailed today and am following up with a post. The girls are so excited they want to start this week at our meeting. We have 8 girls (8-11) and are from Knoxville, TN. My email is Looking forward to hearing from you.

  14. Is it still possible to do this? I would love to be included. We live in Payson, UT and I have 13 girls that are 11 years old. My email address is

  15. Could you do an out of country pen pal? Like an English speaking country? It would be fun for the girls to learn about other cultures.
    Thanks, Ashlei

  16. This is a wonderful idea! Our primary would enjoy writing to another ward. Any interested?
