Does your child dream of other countries and cities she'd love to visit? Encourage that creativity and wanderlust by creating a DIY travel brochure that is sure to spark future voyages.

What you need: 

  • Construction paper 
  • Magazines 
  • Travel brochures 
  • Scissors 
  • Glue 
  • Markers 
  • Atlas or maps 

What to do:

  1. Look at travel brochures or magazines with your child. Why might tourists want to visit those places?
     
  2. With your child, choose a place that you would like to visit and locate it on a map. 
     
  3. Make a list of at least three reasons why this location would attract visitors.
     
  4. Fold a piece of construction paper into three sections and use each section to explain a reason for visiting. Be sure to include enough information so that someone could make an informed decision about visiting that location. You might even want to visit a library or use the Internet to find out more about the location.
     
  5. Illustrate your brochure with drawings or with pictures cut from magazines or travel brochures.
