My sister in law's kids used to receive Highlights Top Secret Adventures, but have since outgrown it. She had two packs that they never opened and handed them down to us this week. We opened the one about Costa Rica first.
Little J gets Highlights, but I'd never heard of the Top Secret Adventures. It's a kit that helps teach kids about different countries while sending them on a fun hunt to solve a "who done it" mystery.
It came with a puzzle, picture cards of suspects, a fun adventure puzzle book, and a nice paperback book of the country. The kit is meant for kids 7-12. Sassyfras and Juiciness are 4 and not yet reading, but were able to participate and enjoy the kit with our help. We're still working through the activity book to solve the mystery...I don't think it's not something most kids will do in one sitting.
Overall, I would say my kids are really enjoying the kit. We may try to do a few more lessons with the kit to extend our learning about Costa Rica. How was your after school week?
