Homemade Bookmark

This is a fun east activity for kids. Your child may want to make a whole bunch of bookmarks to give-a-way to friends for school or even simply gifts to Aunts and Uncles.
You will need:
Paper
Clear Contact Paper
Scissors
Markers, paints, stickers or whatever you can find
You can cut the paper into strips or have your child color the entire paper first then cut into strips. You can also use existing art work.
Color.

Cut 2 pieces of contact paper for the front and back of you bookmark.

Adhere to paper. Smooth out bubbles.
Trim edges. There you have it. A homemade book mark.


You might even want to read books with your child before or after your craft or even take a field trip to the Library.

I cheat. I use a laminator because I'm too impatient with the contact paper. I make a bubbly mess.
