Just around Christmas time The Little Passports suitcase landed on our doorsteps. Addressed to my daughter it was an instant hit, because it’s not every day a 5-year-old in my house gets mail. I am sure you are familiar with different subscription services including a whole bunch for the kids. When I researched monthly boxes, I wanted to stay away from the ones with arts and craft. I know a big number of my readers look for crafts to do with kids, however, my kids go to a very crafty pre-school and my shelves are full of amazing artwork already. I was looking for something different – educational and fun and here comes my little passports review. Each month is an adventure with the Little Passports and your child will have a chance to explore a different country and learn new things about it. My daughter just learned how to read, so she enjoyed solving the riddles, finding things on the map, and writing. The characters of Little Passports, Sam and Sophia, travel the world and share their stories through care packages. This month our friends from Little Passports sent us an envelope from Brazil. A page long letter told us what the kids found interesting in Brazil, what they thought of the country and who/what they met on the way. We loved the story of Sam and Sophia helping to rescue a monkey. Another activity sheet that requires a map – I was very surprised to see how fast my V found cities on the map (I have to admit, geography was not my thing in school). My daughter probably wouldn’t be able to solve the task on her own, but I was there to show off my smarts (and ability to read upside down). As before this month package came with stickers, suitcase tags, pin for the map, sticker for the passport, and a little souvenir – a stone. When I asked my daughter what she liked best about this month package, she favored the games with a map over anything. I think this is a very creative way to get kids interested in geography, especially considering that I couldn’t even concentrate looking at the map back in school.
