The book is also interactive and filled with factual tidbits that young kids will be able to grasp easily.
My daughter loved this book so much!
This leaves an inspiring message to the kids. It tells them that they can dream and make it come true with determination and hard work!
Button Pin. It’s a cute button pin with Amelia Earhart’s portrait on it. She looks lovely in this illustration!
Phrase card. This card lists phrases that pilots usually say, so kids can practice them and use them for pretend play!
Aviator Hat. It’s a retro hat, just like what pilots like Amelia Earhart have worn before!
My daughter likes how soft and comfortable this hat is. Also attached to it are goggles.
It has a button to secure the hat on the head.
Here’s how it looks like on her! She loves it!
Airplane Extravaganza. The first activity this month is about making paper airplanes. The box provided materials such as cardstock paper, washi tape, measuring tape, and wooden numbers. There’s also a card with instructions for the game. The kids just need to find out which one flies the farthest!
My son made a paper airplane using black colored paper.
My daughter chose the green paper for her airplane!
Now that the paper airplanes are done, they used a measuring tape to measure one-foot increments on our floor.
Then, they marked each increment with the included wooden numbers. After that, they finally flew their planes to see which one reaches the farthest. It was such a fun game and they wanted to do it over and over again!
Bullseye on the First Try. For the next activity, the kids used the washi tape again to make a bullseye on the floor and play a mini-game with the paper airplanes. After making small, medium, and large circles using the washi tapes, just assign each circle a number and then kids try to get their airplane to land in the circle with the most points! Of course, the one who gets the highest points wins!
Circumnavigate the Globe with Amelia. For this activity, they provided an inflatable globe and some stickers, so the kids can mark Amelia’s destinations when she was attempting to fly around the world.
Here’s what the globe looks like after filling it up with air.
My kids had a great time searching for the locations on the globe, including 4 US states and 17 countries!
Colouring Page. The coloring pages came as a bonus in this month’s box. The first one has cute animals on it.
The other one has a travel theme. That hot air balloon is super cute!
Paint Your Own Airplane. For the last activity, they sent a painting kit! The set is complete with a brush and the paint colors as well as an instruction guide. The main airplane came disassembled.
No worries because it’s also quite easy to put together!
Painting this is a great way to unleash the kids’ creativity. They can also learn how to mix and match colors using it!
My daughter chose to paint the main body of the airplane in blue!
She also used orange for one side of the wings.
It’s almost complete! My daughter is still wearing the hat even during this activity, that’s how much she likes it!
After letting it dry, the painted plane is now ready for display!
It’s so colorful!
This definitely deserves a spot in our display cabinet!
My kids’ first box from Kidspire is amazing! It’s nice that they chose Amelia Earhart as this month’s featured SHEro. She was an inspiration to a lot of people and her story reminds us that with hard work and determination, you can make your dreams come true. The book is also nice, my kids learned more about Amelia’s biography in such a fun way. The activities were simple but my kids had so much fun with them, especially making the paper airplanes and playing the mini-games. It surely made a great bonding time for all of them. If you are looking for a new activity subscription for kids, this is a good choice as it helps mold their perspective by giving them role models and activities that improve their outlook on life!
