A Global Adventure for kids with Little Passports

Inside Little Passports World Explorer Kit

I was given the opportunity to enroll in Little Passports, a monthly subscription service that is a global online adventure for kids. Our family is rooted in travel – I met my husband in New Zealand while on a one year work visa after graduating from University in Canada. That happened in 1999, and since then my husband I have lived in 2 different continents, 3 countries and 4 cities while traveling in between all that moving. So travel is important to us, it is as much a learning experience (if not more!) as going to school.

Of course, attending school is important, so it is not logical (or affordable) to just pull Mr P out of school for jaunts around the world. But seeing as he and Little Miss have great-grandparent, grandparents and family in Canada (my parents) as well as great-grandparent, grandparents and family in New Zealand it is even more important for them to understand the world around them.

Our first month subscription box for the World Explorer Kit arrived and as soon As Mr P saw the blue suitcase, he loved it and wanted to know everything about it. We’ve drawn maps before to show him where his grandparents are in relation to us, but he’s never had a wall size map. We spent a long time just looking at the map. Included was also a boarding pass with a secret code to a website full of fun activities, a passport, stickers, a welcome letter and a worksheet. Seeing as he is a pirate-in-training, he loved cracking codes and learning new words in different languages – this month was ‘hello’ in different languages. It was also fun reinforcement of his reading skills by reading the letter from the Little Passport’s travelers Sam and Sofia.

What do you get out of Little Passports

You can sign-up for the convenience of a  month-to-month plan or sign-up for a set number of months upfront. If you decide to sign-up or gift a set number of months upfront, you can also renew your subscription so your child doesn’t miss out on any adventures. The recommended age is for 5-10 year olds, and I can say that my 5 year old really has enjoyed it. The map alone will lend itself to ongoing learning opportunities.

Here’s just a quick peek at Mr P saying ‘hello’ in 3 languages. He already knew how to say ‘bonjour’ seeing as French is my second language, but he enjoyed learning how to spell it on the activity sheet.

I’d strongly recommend Little Passports as a fun way to introduce your kids to the world as well as to languages.

    This is cute and educational way to spark the interests children have about the world around them and the people who live in it. I like the idea that this will give kids a head start on geography, languages, and cultures, and promotes intrinsic motivation and critical thinking. When Chris is old enough, I’d love to fet something like this started.

    This is a really great way to enourage active learning in your child. I love the colors and presentation of the Passports Program…that alone is quite engaging. Another thing i thought that you can add to this to encourage your children to discuss what they learned is to cook ethnic meals for each country they visit…some Kimchi would be a change to bland dinner when your child has just visited Korea.

    This looks like a fun kit! My husband and I also love to travel, and can’t wait to foster that sense of adventure in our kids too.

    I do trust all of the concepts you have presented in your post.
    They are very convincing and will certainly work. Still,
    the posts are very short for newbies. Could you please prolong them
    a bit from next time? Thank you for the post.
