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 Missouri and Idaho. 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. Missouri and Idaho have dueling everything, from bluebirds to state equines. I think Missouri pulls ahead with those cool bears on the state seal, though.
The models are punch-out coated paper and this month feature the Gateway Arch (obvs) and a ski lift, which is fine, unless you were hoping for a 3D potato like I was.
Up first, Missouri, where Sam and Sofia are apparently hanging out at the Blue Cat, waiting for a shipment of cash.
The activity book flips over and upside down to cover both Missouri and Idaho. It’s a glossy, colorful, 32-page activity book with fun facts and games about the states.
Some of the highlights of Missouri include Sam and Sofia’s note and map, a pretty fun number puzzle, a weird time-travel-cotton-candy recipe, and a scary tornado fact sheet slash word find.
On to Idaho and a rather perilous-looking river ride. Sam looks pretty scared, y’all.
Idaho’s activities feature the note and map, a “potato chip cookie” recipe that I have to try immediately, a weirdly straight-up math worksheet, and some cool rocks.
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.
