Little Passports Early Explorers is a monthly subscription box for preschoolers ages 3-5 that introduces children to people, places and traditions from around the world. Immediately after signing up, you will receive your Traveler Kit. In the months that follow, you will receive themed activities and supplies for use in conjunction with your introductory Traveler Kit.
As this was my first shipment, it included my family’s Traveler Kit.
All supplies but the welcome letter arrive neatly contained in the adorable Little Passports suitcase.
The welcome letter lists what is included in the Traveler Kit along with what to expect in the future. Next month, the theme will be world landmarks!
The Traveler Kit includes lots of supplies: a world map; a letter from Max, Mia and their dog, Toby; a postcard; a luggage tag; stickers; an activity book and descriptions of the continents.
After reading the letter from Max, Mia and Toby, my son was eager to explore the activity book. After reading about each continent, he placed the appropriate stickers into his passport book.
Next up was an extremely easy maze.
The following activity asked my son to place three pictures in the appropriate order to tell a story.
The following activity required the use of crayons that were not included in the package. My son had to color the continents green and the oceans blue.
The next activity asked children to complete the pattern. All three patterns were of identical complexity.
I thought this activity was strange as written; its purpose wasn’t immediately clear to me. The children were asked to draw a straight line between a crayon and the continent drawn with the corresponding color. Like most of the activities in the book, it was very easy to do. I encouraged my son to sound out the names of the continents phonetically as he drew the lines.
Here, the children were asked to connect the numbers 0-10 in order to produce a hot air balloon.
By this point in the book, my son’s hand had started to fatigue. He needed a break. Still, he enjoyed being so successful at completing all of the activities on his own.
In this activity, my son colored the monkey brown, the gecko green and the bird red.
This matching exercise asked the children to match the mode of transportation with the scene in which you’re most likely to encounter the mode of transportation.
The last couple of pages contained multiple tracing scenes.
Once he had finished the activity book, my son turned to decorating his suitcase with the remaining stickers and luggage tag.
Once complete, this is what my son’s suitcase looked like: an inviting organizer for all his future adventures with Little Passport Early Explorers!
Although the activity book contained with the Traveler Kit was not at all challenging for my son, it did keep him happily occupied for about 20 minutes. He says he’s looking forward to traveling around the world with Max, Mia and Toby next month, learning about world landmarks. I’m optimistic that, beginning next month, Little Passport Early Learners will be a great monthly learning opportunity for my son, and I’m looking forward to exploring world landmarks with him.
