We now read chapter books with our kids, so I decided it was time to make our own bookmarks!
I have quite the stash of foam sheets to use up, along with foam stickers, so these are the materials that we used.
First, I had the kids each draw a rectangle measuring 4 cm by 18 cm. Next, we made a hole at the top of each one using a hole punch, so that we could thread leftover yarn or ribbon that we had lying around.
Finally, it was time to personalize our bookmarks and decorate them!
This is my five year old’s bookmark:
….and here is my six year old’s creation:
A really simple, fun craft using materials that we already had in the house. Happy reading!
