Make Your Own Bookmark
Watching your children learn to write is a proud journey for any parent. But along with all that pride comes something else… souvenirs! From the moment your children take pen to paper, they create all sorts of truly unique things. Rare is the parent who doesn't want to clip and snip and save tidbits of every precious stage of their child's development. But there are ways to do that other than collecting dusty shoeboxes full of papers. One way to make use of those special memories is to wrangle up the kids and spend time together turning all those bits and pieces of their handiwork into a special gift, a bookmark.
What You Need:
- Material for the bookmark: this can include your child's old artwork, family photos, postcards etc.
- Hole punch
- Markers, crayons or paint
- Yarn or ribbon
- Quick-drying glue
- Contact paper cut to 3 in. by 5 in.
- Construction paper cut to 1.5 in. by 5 in.
