The Twitter account @ucbstudyabroad shared this amazing (and simple!) costume design for a wearable passport. Just cut out a piece of cardboard to hang over your child’s neck with some string, paint it navy blue, and add some lettering to turn it into an official passport! If you’re crafty, you can freehand the lettering, or you can find someone on Etsy who can vinyl print perfect lettering for just a few bucks. Either way, your little passport will be ready to trick-or-treat around the world!
