Crafting with Kids: Bookmarks

Penguin Bookmarks

“Muuuummmm! I’m bored!” Is this something you’re hearing a lot at the moment with the children on summer break or on the weekends?
A quick virtual trip to the Pazzles Craft Room Library could turn the nagging into some constructive, (and creative) time by cutting out some cute animal friends to turn into bookmarks. You could cut out a group of them and the children can do the assembly work and make some for their friends.

I couldn’t go past the cute little Miss Kate Cuttables Penguins for this project. It’s so easy to do once you’ve selected your cardstock. Simply cut each element and then the children can do the rest by assembling the layers. The only trick here is that you don’t glue down the tummy. Keep one layer unstuck so you can use this to slip over your page of your book. This leaves their cute little eyes peering over the top of your book!
There are so many potential bookmarks hiding in the Craft Room. You just need one element to remain unstuck so you’re able to slip it over the page. We’d love to see your creations by uploading to the Pazzles Albums in the Craft Room community.
These would make terrific favours for a party too. I’m always after food free favours for parties. Have fun creating these cute little guys! We certainly did.
