Help Your Child Make a Travel Brochure

Spark interest in faraway places by helping your child make her own travel brochure!




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.
