Pack your bags kids, we’re ready for a vaca! We are super excited to share this set of free printables for mini-jetsetters who’d like to take an afternoon adventure without leaving the yard. The set includes 2 different full color versions + 1 black and white, all with a ticket, baggage claim, wing badge and mini wings. Setup as PDF forms, these are incredibly easy to customize, but can also just be printed and filled out by hand (or laminated for reuse!). Pro tip: Use the black and white versions on colored or patterned papers/cardstocks for a colorful set of tickets & badges that don’t eat up your ink supply. Designed with the dreamy glory days of plane travel in mind, these look real enough to feel “real” without actually being confused for the REAL real things (don’t you wish our travel documents still looked like this though??).
These printables are not only a fun pretend accessory, they’re also a great way to let kids explore the process of travel (as mentioned in our earlier post about coping with kids travel anxiety). If your kiddo is the type that enjoys being responsible for something or having their own very important things to hang on to, these are a perfect quick solution. And if you want to go the extra mile, print out the flight wing badge/stickers on temporary tattoo paper or glue a pin-back on for an instant set of pilot wings.
You can download the files below as a zip file that includes the super easy instructions for grabbing the fonts we’ve used and using the PDF form to create tickets exactly like the ones shown above.
We’d love to see some snaps from your imaginary trips to far off places! Be sure to take pics and tag us (@barleyandbirch or #barleyandbirch) – we’ll share our favorite adventures on Instagram! Love this? Want to pass it on? Please, please do! Our only request is that if you repost somewhere, you include a shout-out back to us with the original link to this post instead of a direct link to the files – we appreciate it!
