Do you mean to text Europe while in Canada? Because Koodo has free international Texting while in Canada for all their plans for the last 2 years. If you mean to text while in Europe, then nope, you have to pay roaming charges http://help.koodomobile.com/coverage-long-distance-and-travelling/Travelling
So what are other options? I can't see my kids not texting that long. They will rebel! Can we open the phones up and buy prepaid sims? Should I just buy disposable phones over there? Can they text in wifi areas? Any help you can give would be awesome!

You can unlock your phones and get a prepaid sim. However you will be using a local European number. But if you get prepaid with Data you can message with other messaging apps like Whatsapp, Google Hangouts, facebook messenger, etc I usually use this site to check out my prepaid options when travelling since roaming costs an arm and a leg and your first born http://prepaidwithdata.wikia.com/wiki/Prepaid_SIM_with_data
