Well, this will be our last installment of Little Passports, at least for now. I considered extending the subscription, but we’re gonna be trying out a couple other kid subscription boxes this summer, and I don’t want to be on overload! Maybe by the time school starts back in August I can do a post comparing them all and share our favorites. That said, this one has been awesome. We’ve been doing Little Passports Early Explorers subscription, which is geared toward children aged 3-5, for 3 months now and have really enjoyed it! (You can see box one and two here and here!)
This month’s box was themed ‘Passport to World Music’. (Box 1 was Intro to Continents and box 2 was Landmarks.) This box included an activity book full of fun things for Enzo and Roman, like matching instruments to continents, learning about less and more with musical notes, search and find maracas, identifying identical didgeridoos, to name a few. The boys always have fun with the activity books, and we rotate who’s working in the book and who’s playing with the other fun stuff in the box.
We also got a CD with fun songs from around the world (La Cucaracha, Waltzing Matilda, Ah Sailor, etc), stickers to add to our map, instrument flash cards, a post card from Max & Mia, a hang tag and sticker for our suitcase from Box 1, and another flash light activity (a favorite in Box 2). The CD was a crowd favorite, but we don’t own an actual CD player… had to take a little road trip around town to listen to it, but I think that made it all the more fun for them! They always fight over the stickers and flashlight card. I love that they’re having fun and learning something. Makes this a perfect indoor summer activity.
We were awake all night listening to booming thunder and the occasional tornado siren, and lots of places in our town lost power, including the schools. You know what that means… 2 extra kids ‘helping’ us open our box today. The Early Explorer boxes are definitely geared toward the younger kids, but my 6 and 7 year old love it too!
When I have a chance to revisit Little Passports, I may go for their USA edition that caters more to them (kids aged 7-12). If you’re on the fence about trying Little Passports, I really encourage you to visit their website and see what all they have to offer. There are lots of options, and a single box is only $21 shipped. That’s cheaper than a trip to McDonald’s for us!
