Little Passports June Review

I apologize for the delay of this review, baby #3 came a bit early and we weren't quite ready for that, so I am slowly trying to play catch up with my reviews. That said, this review is always such an easy one for us to do, because we LOVE the product and the company! We are in the midst of summer break and no vacation for us until the fall, so traveling with Little Passports has been our mini getaway each month. When it arrives in the mailbox, I always have some very excited kids, so this month was no different and if offered a bit of break from the new baby for them.
If you don't know about Little Passports, then you are missing out! Little Passports offers opportunities and experiences by mailing monthly travel packages (World or US Editions) right to your mailbox. These packages are filled with exciting items to encourage their explorations. It is super easy to sign up (they have different plans for whatever your needs might be), each month your child will receive a package filled with amazing goodies from a new country or state, explore and have fun with your child. Check out some great clips and reviews of Little Passports here.
 During your first month with Little Passports, you will receive an introduction to Sam and Sofia, a suitcase filled with a world wall map, a travel passport, stickers, an activity sheet, and access to online games and activities with a boarding pass (Our introduction to Sam and Sofia during month one was very informative, check it out here). Sam and Sofia are the two traveling characters within Little Passports and each month they travel to a new destination and send us fun things from their discoveries. We love finding where Sam and Sofia have been and what they have found. You can read our month two, three, four, five, and six as well to see where we have been.
Our package has arrived! Hurray!
 Mommy's Block Party is heading to Mexico with this month's Little Passport feature.
Whoa, check this out!
 Sam and Sofia have sent us a ton of fun stuff again this month from their travels to
Guanajuato, Mexico.
First up, our letter and a photo from Sam and Sofia. The letter was great, it even had some Spanish words which B knew from Spanish class at school. The excitement he shows when something as little as a school/Little Passports connection is wonderful. Sam and Sofia shared all about their journey, one of the favorite parts was when they talked about playing soccer or "futbol", because they both play on a soccer team. The photo showed them what the letter was describing and Sam and Sofia were also dressed in some traditional clothing, which both kids thought looked cool.
 Scarlett got to check out the envelope too, she is really starting to get into our Little Passports delivery more each month.
Scarlett discovered the Activities page and was thrilled to see a "chocolate recipe" on the page. She is a huge chocolate fan, although the chicken mole is probably not quite her style. We enjoyed reading about Oaxaca and its culinary knowledge, I wish my kids would actually eat the mole because it sounded really tasty. There was also a hidden picture activity and some Spanish translation words. B did really well figuring out what each Spanish word was in English.
 Our boarding pass, luggage sticker, passport sticker, and map sticker were next. We used the boarding pass to access the Boarding Zone where you can play games and do trivia. We liked the Mexico Taquiera game, although the kids didn't like when the customers got "mad" at them for making the wrong food. B really thought the trivia game was fun and did fairly well with it.
 Quickly locating Mexico on the map, S needed some help finding it but big brother helped out.

B really liked the flags colors
B was kind enough to let S put on the luggage sticker this month, she found a great spot for it. Look at all the places our suitcase has traveled!
Sam and Sofia usually include something special from their adventure. Here it is!
This month, they found a traditional game in Mexico called a Balero. It is a game of skill where you hold the stick of the Balero and throw the ball up in the air to catch it on the stick. This move is called a recto, but there are many other tricks you can learn with a Balero too. Both kids had to try it out immediately.

Our June trip to Mexico was very fun!
Nos vemos para el proximo mes!
(Until next month)
