Thanks Prosthet. I've had the idea for a long time, but only now I have the right people to make it work. Thanks for being my beta tester! I really appreciate it, and promise to grow the site so that you and your son have lots of postal friends to swap with! :-)

If you are working with children and want to swap with other people who work with children, why not join


We're looking for educators, school-based or otherwise to join up and start swapping!

Hey folks - I've just set up a network specifically for swapping postal projects with people working with young people.


For want of a better name it's called Schoolswaps, but I hope it won't be limited to schools. Perhaps homeschools, tutors or others could get involved. 


Check it out at and give me any feedback you want. The site is still in it's early stages (I made it about 8 hours ago but the idea has been in my head for a year or so)


The official first event of Schoolswaps has also already been arranged. We have a mailart event coming up soon that I will announce shortly right here.

Hi folks - Hope you'll be able to contribute to my next mailart call which is being run for the Kingston International Youth Festival in London. More details will be posted soon...

i found these pages today in a vintage children's colouring book. some other pages are left unfinished; perhaps to send along for interpretations.... :)

On occasion, we had some stuff that got lost or delayed,
because of the long strike of the mail in Brazil.

Thanks for the invite!
I have some experience with mail art for children.
Here is the link to a blogger with the "child version " to the project for the Arbor Day, which was held in 2007, in basic education for children.



Greetings from Brazil

This group is a great idea. I have long fielded requests for mailart by kids from schools, and will endeavour to put them in here in future
