My son recently celebrated his fifth birthday with a “Trolls”-themed party. We tend to be low-key with birthday parties. Usually a handful of kids come over and we eat snacks, play games, color and do a craft.
Now that we’re reading chapter books, bookmarks are a necessity. Here’s a creative way to make inexpensive bookmarks. Next time you head to the hardware store pick up a few paint chips and you’re almost done. This is a great craft for little ones since it involves no cutting.
Paint chip bookmarks
- Paint chips (look for ones with a hole punched in the corner)
- Hole punch (if necessary)
Cut two pieces of yarn about 8 inches long. Fold them in half and loop them through the hole in the corner of the paint chip (or use a hole punch).
Have your child apply stickers to his heart’s content to the paint chip.
