Little Global Citizens
Help children foster a genuine respect for others, and help them feel connected to people whose lifestyle, culture, language, food or family structure may be different from their own. Little Global Citizens is a subscription service that sends an expertly designed, education-based box to kids (aged 4 to 10) to bring a new country and its culture to life. Each box is filled with items from that country including authentic guides, crafts, screen-free activities (games and puzzles), language skills, recipes, story book and more! Countries are picked to highlight various cultural events relevant in that country. Little Global Citizens offers something that goes beyond a book. It’s a fun way to engage children’s senses in a different way to learn about other people. Free shipping.
Kids will gain a mindset of respectful understanding and appreciate that people have similarities and differences while learning life skills in the kitchen. eat2explore’s subscription box brings the food of different countries straight to your kitchen table. It provides tools for families to cook together, learn and dine on different cuisines and cultures. Once kids are done exploring the country, they’ll love they can track their “travels” with a sticker on their eat2explore passport and collect country flag pins. The boxes can be purchased one box at a time, or through a monthly subscription. The great part is the boxes do not include perishable products, so you can use the included ingredients and cook when you have time. eat2explore provides three easy-follow-recipes and a shopping list to purchase proteins and vegetables of your choice, as well as including hard-to-find spices and sauces.
