My mom got our son a subscription to Little Passports as a holiday gift, and I have to say it has been such a help to us during this quarantine. Every month we receive a fun packet with a workbook, stickers, and activities.
Little Passports has been wonderful for fun learning activities for my son and I do to together and I’ve been using them as my homeschooling option during this time of school closure.
Are Little Passports worth it?
Totally! Little Passports are based on age ranges, so you pick the one that best fits your child. We picked the preschool group for Early Explorers (ages 3-5). When the first package arrived, my son spent two entire hours focused on putting together the characters and animals and locating the corresponding areas on the map. He loved it!
We met Max and Mia and dog Toby. Every month they send us a letter with their new adventures and we follow their travels.
Our first package came with a lovely little suitcase to hold all the activities, a huge map, and little figurines of all the characters. Each month there is a new topic and a new set of activities.
Here’s everything you get in the first package:
- A fun orange suitcase
- Wall-sized world map
- Luggage tag
- Stickers, photo and activity booklet
- A welcome letter from new pen pals Max, Mia and Toby
Ongoing packages include:
- Fun toys and souvenirs
- Activity booklets
- Stickers for your suitcase and map
- Trading cards
- Letters and photos
Early Explorers is packed with fun and educational themes: landmarks, music, animals, food, art, oceans, natural wonders, world coins, space, world discoveries, dinosaurs, science, celebrations, habitats, transportation, insects, sports and more!
The first Little Passports mailing gives us stickers for each continent for us to place on our suitcase, and each month we get a new sticker to add to the suitcase based on the topic. We learned about all the continents and oceans, by looking at them on a map, identifying and matching based on location. Each month we get stickers for the topic and place them on the map depending on where that animal or building is located. The activities include patterns, matching, and tracing letters.
The Little Passports kits also come with a monthly craft. One month we made a really cool jellyfish craft with a plastic cup and yarn. See below.

Another month we got pieces to create animal finger puppets. We loved the space-themed month, where we got stamps for planets and the sun. We also really enjoyed this “fishing” activity.
As my son is growing through early elementary and learning to read, my mom got us the Science Junior subscription. With this, we have been doing some fun learning through a comic book and more scientific experiments. Here’s a fun one we did on robotics.

Get Little Passports
The Little Passports activity workbooks are full of great interactive pages, so you can easily divide the learning experience over a week of homeschooling, I mean distance learning. Or you can do them all at once if your child is super into them.
My son loves to decorate the postcard with stickers, finding corresponding locations on the map based on the letter from the explorers, and “all of the parts” of the activity book. I asked. He can’t pick a favorite.
