Creating Your Own Bookmarks
Card stock; crayons, markers, or paint; small leaves (optional); clear contact paper
Make your own bookmarks using card stock. Cut a sheet of card stock into rectangles. Have your child color or paint them. You can also cut out shapes to glue to the bookmark or glue on small leaves. Then cover the bookmark with clear contact paper. The bookmarks make great gifts and also are great for kids who are starting to read chapter books.
