Kids Craft: How to Make Corner Bookmarks for Kids
Are you ever looking for a new, fun, and creative way to get your kids interested in reading? My boys LOVE LEGOs and we thought that some fun Lego people faces would be a great craft this summer. This is a project that is easy enough that the kids can make their own and get them excited to read that new book.
How to Make Corner Bookmarks for Kids
- Yellow cardstock
- Glue stick or tape roll
- Markers to decorate
1. On a piece of plain scrap paper, draw a square. Use your ruler so its sides are perfectly straight. I made my square 2.5 x 2.5 inches.
2. Draw second square exactly the same size on the right side of the first square (so they share a side) and a third square exactly the same size on the top of the first square. You should have an L shape with your three squares.
3. Draw a diagonal line from the upper right corner to the bottom left corner of the two boxes you just made, except extend them past the corner 1/2 inch.
4. Cut out your shape so it looks like this:
5. Fold your triangles over and glue the top to the bottom.
This is what you will have when you are finished!
Let your kids create and decorate their new book marks. My boys went crazy with the Lego theme and kept making different faces!
My boys thought these were so fun! They wanted to sit down and read just to use their new bookmarks!
This is a fun and easy craft that is easy to modify for girls or boys. You can also make these to include with a book as a little gift to a teacher, friend, or neighbor. There are so many options with just a little imagination and creativity!
