What is World Explorer Kids?

The idea of World Tour Kids is to keep your kids moving and learning. The rules are simple. Kids need to do some sort of exercise (ride a bike, walk, run, dance...) at least one hour per day in order to move from country to country. The goal is that daily exercise will become a second habit for them.

What this is NOT?

This is not a game which happens in virtual reality. This is all about engaging kids to real world activities. Feel free to use PokemonGo or other apps which might motivate Your kids to keep moving BUT I want to underline that You are perfectly fine without them too. 

How Does it work?

1. Join the World Tour Kids Insider Club. It's FREE.

You will receive a free travel journal to keep your kid on the track. 

2. Exercise

Kids need to keep moving in order to move from country to country. (7 days at least 1 hour/day = new country)

3. Explore and Learn

Feel free to explore the country as much as You want (library, internet...). I'll also send a weekly e-mail with additional activities and ideas related to each country (starting from 1st of Jan, 2017).

4. Have fun & repeat steps 2 and 3

First you will visit 10 biggest countries by population from five different continents: Europe, Africa, Asia, North America & South America. In the end you will also visit Australia & Antarctica. A new country will be available weekly. By the end of the year 2017 you have visited 52 countries.

To Whom?

"World Tour Kids" is a membership site for all you kids out there between 3 and 12 years old. You won't need loads of cash to make this imaginary journey around the world. Instead, you will need an explorer attitude (and good sneakers since this is NOT just an armchair journey). All the other equipment are optional.

Why Should Your Kids Join This Adventure?

Ultimately it's really up to you guys to make the best of this journey but there is a good chance to learn and experience many cool things:

  • Active lifestyle will become a habit for your kids. This is most likely the most valuable gifts You can give.
  • You will get printables which make the physical activity visible. Just decide that you won't "break the chain". No matter how you feel.
  • Goals can make wonders to motivate your kids (or anyone). It's much more fun to exercise even if You are just pretending that You are on your way to Egypt or Brazil (for example). Learning the power of goals at early age is a great skill for the rest of your life.
  • There'll be a global community of "World Explorers". Your kids are not alone doing this imaginary trip - no matter if you live in the middle of nowhere. Please, ask all your friends to join! The more the merrier.
  • They'll learn some geography (it's cool to have a basic understanding where different countries are located and know at least their capitals).
  • You can practice the skill of storytelling when working out. This has many benefits: time just flies and it helps them to remember the countries better because you can memorize the stories later on "do you remember Frank's adventures in Luxor, Egypt..." By the way, did you know that many great leaders are good storytellers? Definitely a skill worth practicing.
  • ​You can make this adventure as digital or non digital as you wish.
  • Your kids may practice hand and eye coordination, relaxation and patience, focusing and much more with weekly coloring page activities.
