To prepare, I made both of the girls a passport. I used the tutorial I had previously published here. I kept things simple with blue card stock for the cover and white copy paper for the inside. For our stamps, I’m just going to draw a little design in a circle for each of our destinations.
We started with a selection of books. I used Alaska (Welcome to the U.S.A.) by Ann Heinrichs as our overview book. It hit all the high points and we used it as a travel guide. I decided on a few highlights from Alaska that we were going to visit, Denali National Park, the Iditarod Dog Sled Race, and an introduction to the Eskimo culture.
