School ended here last week and I have been busy trying to organize some sense of school work for my little ones. Worksheets only go so far, so I look to find things that are hands on, which seems to work for my 4 year old the best. We’ve had some pretty rainy days recently and we were particularly bored the day our Little Passports kit arrived. Great timing!
Little Passports has 2 editions — USA and World. The World Edition is recommended for ages 5-10 and every month the main characters of Little Passports — Sam & Sofia — visit a new country. They send your child a fun package in the mail filled with a letter, souvenirs, stickers, photos, access to online games/activities in the Boarding Zone. There are 24 adventures available. I chose to review the USA edition, which although it is recommended for ages 7-12, I felt it would be a better fit for my children. Lately, my son has been very interested in finding things on the US Map and knowing about different states and places he been. The concept of the “world” is still a bit far out there for him.
With the USA Edition of Little Passports, Sam & Sofia visit 2 states and then send your child a package full of a travel journal, stickers, postcards, pop out models and access to the Boarding Zone. There are 26 packages available for the 50 states. I have to tell you all that my son truly thinks that someone named Sam & Sofia mailed this to him, it’s cute.
Little Passports offers a monthly plan or you can choose to sign up for 3, 6, or 12 months. Prices range from $11.95 to $13.95 a month. It really seems that this program is well worth the value. We’re going to sign up to continue to receive the monthly passports and I will probably continue to do the monthly option. This is a great program in my opinion to start now, in the summer as everyone is off from school & soon boredom is going to set in. Plus, with family vacations and road trips, this is a wonderful way to take your Little Passports to a hands on adventure.
