DIY Kids Bookmarks
by Wendy Sue Anderson
Designer Note: Does your local library host a summer reading program? Ours does and my kids are always excited to sign up and read fun books all summer long. This year my youngest child can even read chapter books on his own – it’s so exciting! Since they are all reading bigger books, they take more than one sitting, so I thought we would make some fun little bookmarks for the kids to use. They had so much fun choosing their own sticker and paper color – they were super easy to make too!
Doodle "Bug" Sack Puppets
by Jodi Wilton
Pre cut shapes for kids who can not cut yet, to make it easier for them to piece together.
Use Circle Punches to create the eyes, nose and mouth (the mouth is 1/2 of a circle).
Use a Heart Punch to add the ladybug dots, and antenna's.
Use Washi Tape to add the stripes to the Bubblebee's Body.
You can use two brads to fasten the Ladybug's Wings to the body. This allows the kids to move the wings.
