How to Make Passports for a Preschool Lesson

Use paper to make a pretend passport for preschool children.

One way to teach preschool children about different parts of the world is through imagination. You can create a passport for children to use while "traveling" around the world. Different parts of the room can be decorated like different cultures and after they complete activities they receive a stamp. Passports are easy to make and can be created with common classroom items.

Measure a piece of paper seven inches wide by nine inches long. Cut as many pages as you need to fill your passport book. Keep in mind that each page will count as two when it is folded in half.

Cut a cover for the passport out of blue construction paper or card stock that measures seven inches by nine inches.

Line all the pages up together. Fold the pages in half to create a book. Staple the middle to hold all the pages in place.

Write "Passport" on the front of the book with a black marker. Take a photo of the students with a digital camera and print the photos out. Glue the photo inside the first page of the book. Write their name and hometown next to the photo.

  • Collect different rubber stamps to represent different countries. Give the students different stamps for "traveling" to different countries.
