USA Edition: New York and Texas

 

After heading off to North Dakota and California last month, we now get to experience New York and Texas via a 30-page color activity book packed with activities, trivia, crafts, and experiments. Like last month, because we visit two states every month, New York is on one side, and Texas is on the other. Read below to see what we learned about each of these marvelous places.

Activity Book

 

Here is the inside of our activity book. Featuring a postcard from each state, a set of stickers to add to our field guide (which we received in the welcome kit), and a surplus of educational information, games, puzzles, and stately activities. Now to decide who the lucky recipient of our postcards will be!

 

This weekend was bitterly cold (-36 F with -45 F windchills), so we decided to hang out inside and learn about two new states: New York and Texas to be exact. I have been to New York once upon a time - back in 2006, so I had my scrapbook out alongside this fun activity book to show a little from my firsthand experience. Through the Little Passports book, Hank caught his first glimpse of what a neighborhood street map in Brooklyn looks like (a lot different than our rural map, that's for sure), read about Central Park, learned how to make a paper boat, discovered the Syracuse Library and received a recipe for New York pizza. Turning to the Texas side of the book, he learned a bit more about college football, how to draw his own steer, and even received a recipe for Pan de Campo - which we will totally be using this summer! He had a lot of fun soaking in this information and was excited to add his new stickers to the field guide.

To keep the field guide safe, we have been putting all of our activity books and the guide in the plastic file folder that we received in our first shipment. It has been a great time learning about new states, especially ones that we haven't travelled to. Who knows where our yearly trip will be to now that we've discovered all of these fun and exciting places.

Looking back at the scrapbook, I found this gem of a photo from 2006 when I visited New York with the college choir. As a senior in high school (I went PSEO), I hadn't been on an airplane before and was so nervous for this trip. As you can see, I borrowed my grandma's fanny pack, and knitted my hat and glove set to bring along. 🤣

Verdict

This was our third month of Little Passports USA Edition, and the second one in which we've actually received the state book. Like I mentioned in the previous review, this book is really well made, the activities are fun, the plethora of information is amazing, but the price point is just too high. We received 2 post cards, stickers, and the book, along with a link for online information, but for $27.95 I really need to have more physical items than this. A small souvenir from each state coupled with the option to purchase the states you want in preparation for a road trip or vacation would make this a better value for me. What do you think of this subscription?

While I am taking a time-out from being a Clinical Laboratory Scientist, I am currently staying at home with my 2 sweet boys! My first subscription was Julep thanks to happening upon the MSA website, and it all went downhill from there! I have subscribed to Ipsy, Boxycharm, Degustabox, Julep, Graze, Bluum, Walmart, and more because I love a good surprise! I truly am a subscription addict!
