Creative bookmark Crafts for children

A child making his or her own bookmarks will encourage the child to read, if only to use the new bookmark! You can decorate popsicle sticks (after eating them, of course) to look like people, animals or with just wild colors. Use paint or markers or even glue on different pieces of colored paper. Gluing colorful fabric over card stock makes another fun bookmark. Ribbons with a charm tied to the bottom can be a different bookmark (for older children.

If the book takes place in a particular place (that really exists), cut up a map showing the location to use as a bookmark (The Pushcart Wars takes place in New York City, for example). Many books have stories, events, characters, etc. that lend themselves to a craft, even just a drawing, that will help to make the book come alive. Think creatively about what your child might do to help make the story come align.

While I was surfing the internet I came across a blog named Artsy Craftsy Mom. I enjoyed her article on 30 Bookmarks Crafts for Eager Bookworms so I wanted to share it. Her article included all sorts of creative bookmarks craft I thought you would appreciate.

About the Author: Yvonne Wonder

As the founder and managing director of Destination Sitters, LLC, a national hotel and event babysitting service, and the mother of two children, I strongly believe that family comes first. I personally needed babysitting when I moved to San Diego 14 years ago. Like most parents, I assumed there were standards for temporary babysitting; in reality, there are no state standards or licensing requirements for temporary babysitting. The idea for Destination Sitters was born! I wanted to Give Parents Peace of Mind® when traveling with their children, so I created strict screening requirements for the sitters we refer. There is nothing like the peace of mind that comes from getting great professional help to care for your children, especially when traveling away from home. I and my partners, along with our office staff, have that one goal in mind with everything we do. Through the years of working with children, I have been inspired to write three books, and this blog for parents’ and children’s wellbeing. I believe the best way to teach a child is leading by example, with love, honesty, integrity, compassion, perseverance, and personal responsibility. Learning these values and teaching children that all women and men are equal will encourage them to dream big to be anything they want to be! An entrepreneur for over 35 years, I previously spent years running a construction and design company with two offices in California and built million-dollar estates and remodeled existing ones. For three and half years, I was one of the primary designers on HGTV’s Curb Appeal. I have also been published in books, magazines and newspapers, and have been a featured designer in multiple showcase houses.
