How to make pretend passports for kids

Updated July 19, 2017

Helping your child create a pretend passport can be more than just a fun craft project. It also offers an opportunity to teach a child about geography, history and other cultures and places. Making a passport can be a creative and simple learning experience for all ages.

Fold the card stock in half to create a cover. Fold several pieces of white paper, place them inside the card stock and staple along the fold to create a binding.

Let your child decorate the cover of her passport, or, for a more authentic look, use royal coat of arms or other design found online.

Tape or glue your child's picture to the first page of the book you have created. Have your child write information such as her name, birthday, address and phone number.

Choose a few countries that your child is interested in learning more about. As she studies each country, have her choose stamps and stickers to put on a page of her passport to represent that country. If she chooses to learn about France, for example, she can place stickers with the Eiffel Tower on a page.
