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 Georgia and New Hampshire. 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. Georgia has an official state marine mammal, which makes it a cooler state than yours.
The models are punch-out coated paper and this month feature a rather intricate airport control tower, which is kind of a weird item to represent Georgia, and a neat log cabin, in which all New Hampshirites are required by state law to live for three months a year. I’ve heard.
Up first, Georgia, where all climates apparently co-exist.
The activity book flips over and upside down to cover both Georgia and New Hampshire. It’s a glossy, colorful, 32-page activity book with fun facts and games about the states.
Some of the highlights of Georgia include Sam and Sofia’s note and map, a puzzling puzzle about a theoretical Atlanta journalism tradition, a proper recipe for cobbler, and a math game alluding to the Georgia Aquarium.
On to New Hampshire and what appears to be a 12 foot tall moose.
Indiana’s activities feature the note and map, leaves and hiking activities, and a new science project about wind. When not in their log cabin, it appears that everyone in New Hampshire is outside.
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.
