Save the Children Club - what our bloggers thought

save the children

We all want our kids to grow up with a well-rounded view of the world - but how do you actually go about talking to them about the lives of children in other countries? Save the Children have recently launched a new Club for children that gives 7-11-year-olds from the UK the chance to explore the everyday life of a child on the other side of the world - all without leaving their living room.

We asked three bloggers to give their verdict on the new offering, and describe how their children got on with the activities. 

As Club members, children receive a welcome pack including a massive world map, an official Club badge and lots of stickers, plus three Club packs throughout the year bursting with educational activities, great games and fun facts, focusing on a girl or boy from a different country.

They also get access to the exclusive Save the Children Club website, where new activities are added every month. Highlights might include activities such as playing a child’s favourite game, learning a few words from their language, making a model of their house, reading their favourite story and cooking a local dish.

The team at Save the Children Club say "the Club allows children to have a space to celebrate things in their lives that are the same, whilst starting to understand what makes their lives different, from children in other parts of the world".
