UAE Pen Pals

UAE Pen Pals aims to get children back into writing and spending less time in front of the screen, while social distancing is heavily put into place across the region and the world.

Your young ones can reconnect with old friends and make new ones with #UAEPenPals, an initiative to get them practising their hand writing, spelling and learning how to write creatively.  The idea is to teach them traditional letter writing styles and mail them through digital platforms, such as What's App and Email.

Give it a go, we are loving it!  Tag us @AbuDhabiReview and use #UAEPenPals if you post your letters to your social platforms!

How to be a UAE Pen Pal

1 - Using a pen or pencil and paper, write a letter!  Ask questions to get to know each other or tell them about yourself.
2 - Parents take a picture of the letter and send it via What’s App or email to the pen pal’s parents .
3 - The pen pal writes a response.
4 - Their letter is sent back using the same method and new friendships begin!

Whilst we encourage parents to find pen pals in their community or school groups, we can help to pair children with their peers.
