A few weeks ago a friend of mine, Jennifer (You may know her as the Bargain Sleuth of Green Bay Consumer), asked me if I had ideas for a passport for her kids to use this summer. She wanted a summer passport her kids could have stamped when they completed activities, visited destinations and ate foods that “screamed Green Bay”. Then we asked ourselves, why go through all that work and not share it? So Green Bay Consumer and Life as a Field Trip are bringing you Passport to Green Bay. I’ll bring you the field trips and Jennifer will show us how to do them frugally.
- Print cover and pages back to back.
- Cut to size.
- Glue or staple binding.
- Paste in a picture of your child or have them draw their own picture.
- Have them fill in their personal information.
- Start filling up your passport!
I recommend printing the passport on card-stock so it’ll last a little longer. If you don’t already have a stamp to use when the kids complete an activity, eat a food, or visit a destination, you can pick one up at a craft store (P chose to use his basketball stamp) or use stickers. We’ve included suggested field trips, but feel free to choose your own. If you have any you’d like to share please share them in the comments section!
Our passports aren’t limited to Green Bay. If you’re going on vacation or your home base is in another city, state or country print our more generic version HERE and adapt it for your community.
