Little Passports is a subscription service for children that teaches them all about the world we live in – geography, languages, cultures – via a monthly care package filled with souvenirs. They recently started a subscription service for older children, age 7-12, that focuses on the USA. My ten-year-old has outgrown Little Passports’ regular offering, so I decided to sign him up for the USA Edition.

This package was sent to us for review purposes. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).

Every month, the USA edition focuses on two states. This month is Kansas and Maryland! We always receive a lovely postcard from each state.

The main item in each month’s package is an activity book with state geography related games, puzzles and trivia. Here are Sam and Sofia under the iconic railroad bridge!

This is the same activity book, upside down and backwards! Each state is given half the content of the book.

Here’s a peek inside the activity book. It’s absolutely packed with information! Little Passports does a great job diversifying the types of activities in different books from month to month, too.

This is the sticker page for this month. There are stickers to put in the field guide my son received in his welcome package that show each state’s bird, flower, flag, etc. There are also map markers for the US map he received.

Little Passports USA also sends a papercraft for each state every month. This is a DIY train to represent Maryland’s deep rail history.

This is the papercraft for Kansas, and I had no idea about the Monument Rocks! We have never been to Kansas, but now if we happen to be near there some time, I think we should definitely stop and see the Chalk Pyramids!

VerdictLittle Passports USA is a hugely educational subscription, packed with tons of information. Doing activities and collecting various stickers is actually a really effective way to help kids learn, it turns out. I think this subscription would be wonderful for children who are home schooled! The papercrafts are not the most interesting things in the world to my son, but he’s warming up to them as the months go by.

  1. Having ridden in a car the entire length of Kansas along I-70 twice, I can say that it is not very interesting. Unless you like Dairy Queen/Stuckey’s combo shops, there seem to be quite a lot of those…

    • OMG I LOVE Dairy Queen/Stuckey’s combo shops!!! LOL, just kidding. Ragan, you’re too much!

      • I was fascinated with Stuckey’s when I was 14. They had pecan log rolls, t-shirts that said “my (insert relative x) went to Kansas and all I got was this shirt” t-shirts, and styrofoam peanuts in a package labeled “ghost poop” (really, not kidding).

        Also I could actually eat DQ then without guilt…

    • I really do love Stuckey’s…
