Explore the World, with
your grandchild...without leaving
your home...unless you want to!
Ideal gift for grandparents to give to their
grandchildren. Kits arrive every month filled with
interesting information, products, crafts and
recipes from around the world, providing interesting
material to discuss. Locate these countries
on the atlas, talk about past or future trips or
people you may know from these country's,
discuss current issues happening in these
countries in the news and how they relate
to your child and/or your family. Complete a craft or cook a recipe from that country.
When we send your grandchild the kit each month, we will send you a corresponding six-page newsletter and a postcard from that country. On the postcard, you can share a personal travel story, share family ancestry from the country or send your grandchild another new fun fact about the country. This gives grandparents and grandchildren a great way to learn together, share stories and gives them a reason to stay in touch and carry on the conversation!!!
Ideal for ages 9 to 15. Available in 1, 3, 6 or 12 month subscriptions.
