I received a sample for review. All opinions are my own.
Traveling is one of my favorite things to do, but it’s not something that happens often anymore since I’ve had my son. We’ve taken him on a few trips and when we do he loves to look at the map to see how far away it is. Many times he likes to look at maps on the computer and asks about all of the places his daddy and I?have visited. Now with his Early Explorers‘subscription, he can learn all about the world and cultures around him.
Early Explorers, a part of Little Passports, is a monthly subscription service created in 2009 to inspire children to learn about the world. Early Explorers is geared towards children aged 3-5 and includes?activity books, stickers, Snapshots, Flashlight Adventures, and souvenirs. Early Explorers includes 17 themes over an 18-month period and the first month includes the Traveler Kit.
The Traveler Kit comes with a suitcase, world map, passport, and stickers. My son loves having his very own map of the world and has even asked us to hang it on his wall.
Decorating the suitcase with stickers of the different continents was a lot of fun. I showed him my actual passport and all of the stamps in it so he could see what happens when you visit another country. He was so excited to “stamp” his passport with the matching stickers. The passport itself was also filled with different activities for him to do including coloring and mazes.
The first themed package we got was about the World’s Oceans. The kit came with a passport, stickers, a flashlight adventure, and an adorable wooden fishing game. The passport was filled with some great activities, including a science experiment.
Having the science experiment included in this kit was a wonderful surprise. It was simple to do – seeing whether an egg floated in fresh or salt water. My son thought this was so cool and asked to do it a few times just to make sure it happened the same way each time.
I think the Early Explorers kit is?perfect for preschoolers. We spent close to an hour going through the themed kit and had a great time learning. I plan to get a subscription for my son as I would love for him to learn more about the world. The best part is once he gets older, he can switch to the Little Passports subscription which geared towards ages 6-10, and the USA Edition geared towards ages 7-12. I can’t wait to see what adventure arrives in our mailbox next month.
