Divide Your Pages

There are many different ways you can arrange your passport. Since we wanted to make ours as open-ended as possible, we decided to keep it simple with boxes. You could also make pages with special lists to keep track of things such as what books your children have read or the parks they visited throughout the year.

Using the ruler and pen, draw two lines dividing each page into four quadrants. Each of these spaces will be used for a new passport entry.

Create Your Badges

Each time your child visits a new location, tries a new activity, or accomplishes a new feat, draw an associated icon onto a blank sticker. Not sure what to draw on the badge? For each of our badges, we did a web search of the activity plus the term "line icon" for inspiration. This part of creating your passport can be really fun for kids and is an activity in and of itself.

Make Entries in Your Passport

For each entry, add the badge along with notes about the experience and the date it occurred.

Document a variety of activities in your passport, from small things like visits to the neighborhood ice cream truck to big events like riding a bike without training wheels. Soon enough your children will have pages and pages of fond memories to look back on.
