-6 educational postcards (featuring photos we personally took) with details of our real northern life. We share what it's really like to live in the Arctic. Each month a new theme is discussed teaching a new aspect of arctic life.
- 6 collectible stickers (with free printable snow globe for them to organize their stickers.) Each month a sticker will be included that complements the arctic theme.

- A personalized response to your child's northern living question - for a fully interactive pen pal experience! Your child can write to us or send us an email and ask a question they've been burning to know about life in the Arctic. Our personalized response will be sent by email.
- A video link for a detailed look at Arctic life in Iqaluit. Included in the month one package, this 11-minute video is fully narrated so that no reading is required to benefit from the information.
