Pretend Trip Abroad
Pretend you're flying to some far-off destination! If you like this craft, you’ll also like our Home Movie Theater Activity - another great way to have fun at home.
What You’ll Need:
*Photo of your child
*Luggage or boxes
*If you are a AAA member, stop by the local office and pick up some maps or guidebooks for other countries. If not, choose a country or location you'd like to visit, and go online to do some research with your kids on that country. Pick a few tourist attractions you would go see if you were really there.
*Make luggage out of the boxes. Tape them shut and use the markers to add decoration.
*Use our Luggage Tags Craft to make personalized luggage tags for your pretend luggage.
*Use white paper to make clouds and glue them to some blue paper. Use brown paper to make signs for your seats.
*Make passports by taking a piece of colored paper and folding it in half. Glue a photo of your child inside, and include their personal information. (You can also come up with fake names and information and use magazine photos for your "passport".)
*Set up the chairs near a wall and tape the clouds & sky on the wall beside the chairs.
*Have someone pretend to take tickets and show people to their seats. Someone can be a flight attendant, handing out snacks and drinks.
*Send us a picture of your kids on their "trip" and we may post it to our site! firstname.lastname@example.org.
*Check out our Everlasing Flower Garden-- another great pretend play activity.
