Little Passports


     While I was getting my first stamps on my own passport, my 8 year old son Joseph got to try out Little Passports at home. Though my kids are used to packages arriving in the mail, this one had a unique and exciting feature on the outside of the box.

It arrived with Joseph's name--just for him!


     His Explorer kit contained a world map, activity sheets, passport, stickers, and more all contained in a suitcase. As a mom working on organization, the suitcase that will continue to hold each monthly subscription is one of my favorite features. 


     Little Passports is designed as a monthly subscription that comes in the mail to your child. You can choose the world edition or the USA edition for their hands on geography lessons and have several billing and package options. We started with the World Edition as it complements our studies of countries this year. Joseph will travel with Sam and Sophia (the characters in the included activities) to a new country every month.




     The enclosed activity sheet introduced Sam and Sophia who travel the world on their GPS enabled scooter.


     Joseph whispered his secret code from his boarding pass (conveniently attached to the handle of his suitcase) as I set up his member account at Little Passports website by clicking on "the boarding zone." The website is kid friendly and safe, and Joesph enjoyed playing the geography games. Each new package will include  another boarding pass which will unlock additional areas of the website. The Worldwide Games unlocked with this set includes continent games, a world puzzle assembled with the computer mouse, and world trivia questions.

  2. I've been considering it for us. Do you think it's appropriate for a K/1st child, or should I wait until Jude is a little older?

    1. The World edition is designed for 5-10 year olds. The included activity sheet has some easier and some more difficult activities. The USA edition is recommended for 7-10 year olds so the World edition may be a better option to start with.
