Would your kiddos love a ticket to a new exciting global adventure? Of course they would! The Little Passports program gives kids an all access experience to learn about a new country every month.
I’d first heard of Little Passports in a Disney Family Fun Magazine, and then from some friends on facebook who subscribe to it, and I’ve thought how great it would be for the kids to learn more about the world around them.
My husband travels all over the world doing missions work and speaking at conferences, and we’ve been blessed to travel with him sometimes, my kids all have their real passports.
However, Little Passports World Edition opens the door for every child to learn about and experience countries that they may never experience otherwise.
When we had the chance to try out the first month of Little Passports World Edition, I knew right away when the package arrived that we were hooked.
When your package arrives in the mail the first month, the World Edition subscription starts with the Explorer Kit which includes:
- Fun travel suitcase with an introductory letter from Sam and Sofia
- World wall map
- Travel passport
- Fun stickers
- Activity sheet
- Access to online games and activities with our boarding pass
Every month thereafter, kids will receive country-specific packages filled with:
- Adventure letters from Sam and Sofia
- Fun souvenirs (Japan sushi eraser, Egypt pyramid dig kit and more!)
- Stickers for your suitcase, passport and map
- Activity Sheets
- Boarding Passes to access more online games and activities
When my boys saw their large box on the front porch when they got home from school, it was like Christmas! I had already showed them the Little Passports website and explained what would be arriving for them.
It took them under 10 seconds to dig into the box and into all the goodies that were awaiting them.
Joshua, my second grader read everything (he loves to read and learn) out loud so that Isaac, my kindergartner could understand what they’d received.
I was impressed at the quality of all the items, but especially the large colorful map, which we hung on the wall by their bedrooms, and the suitcase.
Little Passports knows their clients well, because these are very child-friendly pieces that seem like they’ll be able to withstand a lot of use.
When my teenage daughter got home from school, she saw the boys who were in the backyard with their suitcase and passport, pretending to be traveling to meet the main characters of Little Passports, Sam and Sofia. She came in and said,
Clearly she thought I’d lost my mind, but the fact is that the little passport book that comes with the suitcase really does look like a legitimate US Passport from the outside.
Josh, my learner, has enjoyed locating countries on the map, places we’ve visited, places Daddy has seen, places he wants to go someday, countries he’s heard of on TV.
The other day, Isaac told me he was going traveling to Canada! I’m not even sure why he picked Canada, other than the fact that he could find it on the map, but he was ready to go! I told him he’s was going to need long sleeves and long pants, and well, probably some shoes too.
Because the boys are so happy with our first month, I’ve chosen to continue with our subscription.
For our family, we chose the $11.95/month plan which is billed monthly (I can cancel at any time) and includes the Explorer kit and 23 more Adventure-filled countries.
If you’re interested in your own subscription of Little Passports (which I do highly recommend), as a customer, you have many options when joining Little Passports to fit educational needs, your children’s ages, and importantly, your budget.
On the Little Passports website, you can chose between a World Edition for 5-10 year olds (which is what we chose) and a USA Edition for 7-12 year olds.
Subscriptions range from 3- 6- 12 month plans and prices are between $10.95/month to $13.95/month
The boys are already looking forward to their next package arriving. Joshua is hoping it will be China, and Isaac is still stuck on Canada, so we’ll see where it takes them. That’s part of the fun after all, awaiting the next big adventure!
