Bookmark Craft - Image Collection
Ages 5 to 8

Going back to school is such a busy time for kids, especially when that homework kicks in! This Bookmark Craft, simple to make, created in a pretty mosaic style, is a wonderful back to school craft that helps kids to mark that place in their schoolbooks!

What you'll need

  • Pencils with erasers
  • Poster or acrylic paint
  • Construction paper
  • Paper plate or meat tray
  • Hole punch
  • Yarn or ribbon
Helpful Tip:

To protect your bookmark , have it laminated or cover it with clear contact paper before making the hole on the top.

How to make it

  1. Cut a strip of construction paper about 2-inches wide.

  2. Pour a small amount of paint, about the size of a quarter, onto the paper plate or meat tray.

  3. Dip the eraser end of the pencil into the paint and then onto the paper to create a small dot. Be sure to press the eraser onto a damp cloth before changing colors.

  4. Continue using this painting technique to make any shape or design you choose. You can even write your name!

  5. Make a hole at the top of the bookmark.

  6. Loop a strand of yarn through the hole and secure it with a knot.
