We did passports last year using stickers from an "around the world" sticker book. If this is something that would work for you, let me know and I'll look up the name for you. It was part of our geography unit through MFW.

We're doing MFW this year (Exploring Countries and Cultures), I got my passports from that Lutheran Mission (I think it's LCMS). On their website, you can download stickers. I've downloaded them and will just manually fill in when they're missing a country.

You can also order country stickers from Highlights that correspond to their Top Secret Adventures - and they're CHEAP. They don't have all the countries, but they have like 30 or so.

Jackie - our curricula is starting in North America - can that be added? I think we're there for 6 weeks. I would love it if we could be a part.

The sticker book is called "Flags of the World". It ran around five dollars. There is a big DK in the corner but can't recall what it stands for.
