Help Needed: Passport "Stamp"

This is a fun one!

I am hosting the "Ethiopia" booth at the elementary school's "International Fair." I will be displaying all sorts of stuff from Ethiopia, playing Ethiopian music, wearing the traditional garb I brought back with me, teaching a few Amharic words, etc. The kids get to go around to the different country booths and get their "passport" stamped as they learn about the different countries and cultures.

I need to have some sort of "stamp" to use in their passports. It could be a rubber/ink stamp or a sticker. It should be the shape of Ethiopia or something else that is representative of Ethiopia.

Any ideas?

(Also, feel free to share any ideas that will make my booth better!)

You can go to vistaprint.com and order custom made free stamps.... You have to have the design already, and if you wanted a map of Africa, that might cost you more than just words. But if you wanted just the word ETHIOPIA say, that would be free!

Grace, you could get Ethiopian flag stickers or if you could also make a electronic copy of our actual visa sticker from Ethiopia print that on sticker sheets and give them out. Did that make sense? Copy the look of our visa sticker and print your own stickers for pennies. You could even add an Ethiopian flag in the corner.

I just wanted to let you know we made it through court today. 2 tries isn't too bad! :) Thanks for all your hard work with the FBI list. I can't tell you how much we appreciated it and how much it has helped our journey!
