Little Passports....AUSTRALIA! (Month 6)

Oops. I got behind on writing again. I swear. These past two months have been killer.  Colds, viruses, birthdays, Christmas.  FINALLY I got around to opening my packages.  For the sixth month of Little Passports Sam and Sophia traveled to Australia!  

For those of you that are NOT aware of what Little Passports is,it is a monthly subscription service for children. You can choose TWO options.  The world edition, appropriate for ages 5 and up, or the US edition. The US is geared towards older kids.  On my blog you can learn all about the World Edition.  I am an affiliate, so any links in this post are affiliate links.   You can learn about the previous months by clicking the "Reviews and Giveaways" link at the top.  I have all the Little Passports reviews linked up in there.

As I said, this month Sam and Sophia traveled to Australia!  I typically try to do these when V is asleep. She is still too young to really get what is going on in the envelopes. Unfortunately, since I do like to do them when she is sleeping,we have limited time to work on them. Weekends are super busy lately with basketball.

I am really glad I picked this month to let her "help out".  She had a blast!

This month included the "traditional" items.  You got your passport sticker, the map sticker,and the suitcase sticker.  Since all three kiddos were helping out, they each got to apply a sticker somewhere.

V did the map sticker.  Have I ever mentioned how much I like that sticker?  It looks like a little push pin.

Once all the stickers were applied we got to work on the sheet.  One side had animal matching and the other side have a word jumble and a "fill in the blank" paragraph. The animal matching was fast. Aidan got a bit confused between the wallaby and the kangaroo, which is understandable.

Since it was right after school that we did this, he wasn't feeling the back side of the sheet. I saved it for later.

The REAL fun part was the present that was sent!  I will warn you though.  It smelled horrible. This might be because once I became pregnant I got the super nose and NEVER lost it.  I smell EVERYTHING.  If I was a super hero,that would be my power.

The scratch kit is a collection of papers that are designed and colored underneath.  So. The pages look just like the picture up top.  It is a black paper with a design printed on each one.  There are a couple of "design your own" pages that are blank. 

The premise is you take the tool and scratch off on the lines.  The kids jumped right in and did it their own way.  Nate pretty much stuck to the rules.  V just scratched away. 

It only comes with one stick, so Aidan grabbed the pencil and used the eraser. This was actually the easiest way to do it! It took the black right off! 

Pretty cool,huh?  

Nate's turned out FANTASTIC!

So there you have it!  Month 6 of Little Passports!  Feel free to click the image below to get to the site to learn out more!
