Little Passports (USA Edition) is a kids’ educational subscription with crafts and fun activities about the fifty states. This box is designed for children 7-10, but any bright kid 5+ would like it. Your kids will learn about the geography and culture of the United States with the USA Edition.
This month, Sofia and Sam visit South Carolina and Alaska. The box contains a cute double-sided activity book, postcards from each state, stickers for your field guide, and two stand-up models.
The postcards, stickers, and models are brightly colored and fun.

The stickers are for the Field Guide (you DID save the Field Guide, right?). They also cover the state bird and flower and so on. There are even “pushpin” stickers to mark the map poster (which you also saved?). Nice, quality stickers. Both states have celestial-themed flags this month.
The models are punch-out coated paper and this month features a “mansion” that is totally not a plantation home and a wicked hard but cool bushplane.
Up first, South Carolina, where Sam located a collared shirt and discovered that his long-abandoned Amish upbringing had some utility.
The activity book flips over and upside down to cover both South Carolina and Alaska. It’s a glossy, colorful, 32-page activity book with fun facts and games about the states.
Some of the highlights of South Carolina include Sam and Sofia’s note and map, some fantastic dancing, the obligatory mention of the Civil War, and my very favorite garden insect.
On to Alaska, where literally every Alaskan cliche is happening at once. And something very wrong is going on with Sofia’s proportioning.
Alaska’s activities feature the note and map, some sled dog puzzling, and an awesome gelatin-building cooking craft.
Another quality box! The activities are fun and age-appropriate, and they do a good job highlighting some interesting aspects of the states. Non-readers will need help, but older kids can do everything on their own. We can’t wait to see where they go next month!
This would be a great grandparent or aunt/uncle gift, or a supplement to a homeschool curriculum, especially ahead of a road trip or visit to another part of the country.
