I love Busch Gardens and every September, thanks to my MOSI pass and the Swaptember promotion, I like to visit our local zoo as well. Last year I gave Stephen a printable "zoo passport" I found from Pinterest that really made our trip to Busch Gardens more enjoyable. As we would see animals, he would put stickers next to the corresponding picture on the passport.
I figured I'd make my own, however, because I found that passport somewhat difficult to assemble and it had a dinosaur on it, so that really confused my kid because obviously we couldn't find one of those. :) So I used the same format from my Passport to the National Gallery of Art and was able to create a zoo passport in about 30 minutes that only takes about 23 seconds to assemble (yes, I timed myself!)
Hopefully your kids (or maybe just you!) will have an even more enjoyable experience at the zoo or Busch Gardens by using one of these! Have fun! :)
How to assemble:
1) Print out the PDF (click here!) and lay the two papers next to each other.
2) Fold each in half, hamburger-style.
3) Fold each in half again.
4) Put one on top of the other and staple.
5) Yay you're done! Remember to bring stickers and have a blast! :)
Again, here's the free printable PDF link!
