How to Create a Local Passport
Celebrate the summer and be a tourist in your own city by creating a homemade paper passport. Sightseeing around your hometown with the family is a great way to embrace not only a fun adventure but a day full of learning new things, too.
As part of our ongoing partnership with the LeBron James Family Foundation, we’re dedicated to bringing families together with budget-friendly activities that create memories for a lifetime — and what better way to do that than being a tourist in your own town?
HOW TO CREATE A PRINTABLE PASSPORT FOR KIDS
The first thing you’ll need is a paper passport for your little ones to keep a log of where their explorations take them. Let them personalize their passport with a photo or by drawing their portrait. They can also fill out info like their name, age, favorite food, favorite animal, etc. It's a great way to be able to look back on everything you did this summer.
What you’ll need:
- Construction paper
- Stickers, stamps, or markers
- A cutout of your kid’s photo to personalize their passport
- Small prizes for when they fill up a page
- A stapler
This activity doesn’t need to all take place in one day. With their passport, your kids can stretch out the adventure by visiting different spots over the course of the summer. It’s a fun way to explore your city and inspire them to learn more about where they live.
Here are some locations to include in your passports:
- Local parks
- Historic landmarks
- Famous buildings
WHAT TO MAKE FOR DINNER
Nothing says family time like a day spent together and ending with a tasty meal at home. Cap off a day of exploring your town with a comforting homemade dinner and dessert. To start off, try some Easy Microwave Enchiladas – they’re a quick-prep family meal that can be ready to go in only 20 minutes. And don’t forget dessert! Delight the whole family by whipping up some Chocolate Taco Mini Taco Bowls™ with their favorite toppings. It's the perfect ending to an adventure-filled day!
