update" this is being done right now!!! see link below!

My nine year old son has been watching me make ATC's for the Ongoing swaps and personal use for sometime now and loves to make them right along side me. He even came home from school with a few that he had swapped with his other classmates (I think the art teacher must have put them up to this) which I thought was really cool!
Anyhow, recently he has asked me if he could join in on the swap too. I thought maybe I could just put him the normal ongoing swap but then thought that it would be really cool to have a Craftster Kid's ATC swap. Has this been done before?? I searched but came up with nothing. Please let me know if so.

What do you think? I thought the age could be anything below 13 since some swaps already allow 13 and over with parental guidance but that is totally negotiable. Also, instead of making them their own account it could be up to the parent to control and take credit for the swap that way it keeps our kid's safe (since you will control any info supplied about your child) and hopefully 'flaker-free'. And should it be set up like the Ongoing swap where you pick as you like? Also, I love the fact that it should be international since my kid will flip if he gets mail from ...well, anywhere really!

He is really excited and asks me everyday if I have done this yet so let me know and I will get it off the ground ASAP!

Just found out there is one going right now!!!!!! so much for my searching skills!!

I think this is a totally awesome idea! I just wish I had a kid to get involved, haha. But good luck! I bet the galleries for this would be sweet and adorable!

My nine year old brother has been doing the same.  Grin

He drew a Snoopy card that he wanted me to put up on ATCsforall.com but I can't bring myself to part with it.

I don't know if you are familiar with that site but I know that a lot of artists include their children's cards in their galleries.
