Little Passports, USA Edition

Stir up a little wanderlust in the 7- to-12-year-olds you love, and they just might grow up to be world travelers. Sam and Sofia are the globetrotting mascots of Little Passports, and each month they send home souvenirs of their jaunts. There are letters, stickers, maps, postcards, scratch books, and a disposable camera, and everything is connected to further activities online.

Rather than cross oceans in this particular edition, the kids explore the U.S., so your little ones will learn about the unique geography of each state. It gives armchair travel a whole new meaning. Little Passports costs $10.95 per month.
