Easy DIY Bookmark Kids Can Make
We love our binding machine, and a few summers ago we used some of the covers from homeschool workbooks we didn’t need any more to make these fun transparent bookmarks.
The kids drew animals on with ultra fine point Sharpie pens. This ink is permanent, and the pens dry quickly so there aren’t any worries about smudging.
Once each child was happy with their artwork, we punched a hole at the top and threaded a ribbon through so that the bookmark would be easy to find.
I love that these bookmarks are clear, so you can see through to the text.
But there are so many other fun bookmarks out there! Here are a few other fun bookmark crafts from blog friends.
