Passport to the world and Peru part 1

Last week at the end of our "trip" to Mexico post I had mentioned that we had our passport stamped Mexico and we were heading to Peru. Well, that got me thinking how cute would it be to actually make her a passport! I had originally planned to just Google and print one I found online but I ended up piecing a few different ones together. Here are some of my favorites that I found.

First I found a passport cover. I like how this one looked pretty legitimate. This site also has a link for inside pages.

The Second passport option is located here. There are cover options and page options as well as stamps on this site. The only thing I disliked about this one was that the didn't look as "real". But if your looking for a quick print this is a great option.

I also found more passport stamps here.

I used the first passport cover and the pages for the second option. There was a size difference but I was able to easily adjust the size down when printing. 

Once you pick what design you like, you should have what you need to put you booklet together. Either use a stapler, brads or yarn. Whatever you have on hand. Just make sure you include plenty of blank pages so you can easily keep track of your travels.

Don't forget to include a picture. If you don't have a picture handy you can always have them draw one in!


Passport in hand and we are ready to go!

This is week two of our world tour! One country a week until we wrap up our home school year.

My plans for these lessons will be to:
Learn to find the country on the map
Learn the countries capital
Learn to say Hello in that countries native language
Color a picture of that countries flag
Google search images of that country
Look at the language in a simple way (colors or numbers)
Listen to that countries national anthem
Prepare a traditional meal and/or dessert
Make a craft that represents that country

Here are some pictures from our journey.

Coloring the flag
Our craft this week was cardboard loom weaving. It was a lot of fun, but a lot of work probably better for 8+. But, we did manage to make a pretty great throw rug for her doll house.

Finding Peru

 Looking at pictures of Peru.

That almost wraps up our time in Peru, we just have one last tasty project to share before we depart. 

Have a great Monday!


  1. You probably know that Cindy Wilcox (I'm her Mom) was born in Peru!!! Love that country!

    1. I didn't realize she was born there! How cool is that! She was pretty excited when I mentioned studying Peru and she and our friend Matt were having a "heated" discussion on which country was cooler. Peru, or Chile :).

      Thanks for stopping by!
