What is Little Passports?
Little Passports is a monthly subscription box that is your child’s ‘ticket’ to the world. It is a great way to teach your kids about other countries (or states), what makes that country a special place, learn more about the language used there and other unique facts. When I was living in South Africa I would constantly read about everyone’s adventures through the program and I was so disappointed that we couldn’t join in. When we moved back to America Little Passports was one of my first stops.
Little Passports has three subscription boxes:
- Early Explorers (aimed at Preschool kids ages 3-5)
- World Edition (aimed at 6-10 year olds)
- USA Edition (aimed at 7-10 year olds)
The Traveler Kit
I chose not to tell my kids about our subscription to Little Passports because I knew that they wouldn’t be able to wait for it to arrive. When it arrived in the mail my kids were SO excited to see what this adventure would hold for us.
Our first month came with the following items:
- A letter from our new pen pals Sam and Sofia.
- Our blue suitcase.
- A passport.
- Stickers, a photo of Sam and Sofia, and an activity sheet.
- A beautiful wall world map that I can see us getting many years of use out of.
Since we would be sharing a subscription set for two kids we would use this time to teach the kids how fun it could be to work together. We read the letter together (both kids taking a turn) and discussed everything together. However, I made a copy of the activity sheet so that both kids could work independently on this.
At this point, my kids were so excited to start Little Passports that it was a bit disappointing that they had to wait for a few more weeks for us to go on our first country visit. If you are reading this Little Passports, we hope that in the future Little Passports would consider sending their first country visit together with their Traveler Kit.
First country visit: Brazil
My kids were ecstatic when they saw the envelope outside our front door with our first months items.
I won’t lie, at first sight (before I opened everything up) I was a little underwhelmed. But once we delved into it I was so surprised at all the small things that were included.
What was included in our Brazil country visit:
- Brazil activity sheet. (This is where we learned a bit about the Portuguese language through the word search and unscramble activity.)
- Brazil sticker
- Brazil boarding pass
- Letter from Sam and Sofia telling us all about Brazil.
- A beautiful Amethyst that ‘came from’ a mine in Brazil.
- A picture of an Uakari Monkey (a special animal found in the Amazonian Rainforest.)
- A recipe for Brigadeiro (a yummy Brazilian chocolate treat)
First my eldest two (ages 9 and 6) read a page from our letter from Sam and Sofia.
Then they pointed out to where Brazil is located on our Little Passports map.
Then all three of them(2, 6 and 9 year old) explored the Amethyst (they loved this).
How cute are my two year old hands??
The picture above is why we do what we do. This is why I blog, do activities with them and this is why we are enjoying sharing a subscription to Little Passports. It is for moments like these when I see my children working together and bonding with each other. (Notice my two-year old wrapped around her brothers back.)
The recipe for Brigadeiro chocolate was included and since I was lucky enough to have all the ingredients on hand at home we immediately set out to make it.
They were super delicious and a wonderful conclusion to our day filled with the most wonderful exploration of Brazil.
At the time of this box review the World Edition varies from $11.95 to $13.95 a month depending on the subscription option you choose.
