Establishing a love of reading can be tricky sometimes. Children who would rather run around and be active physically may not see the "fun" in exploring through a story... at first. The key is to choose books that speaks specifically to their interest and personality. Allow them to select which books stand out to them - superheroes, all things locomotives, comedies, comics, holiday themed, etc. As they become excited about what they're reading, they'll want to do it more! Go a step further in encouraging reading by doing this easy bookmark craft for kids!

Personalized Bookmarks

  • Getting Started:

  • Take the poster board or cardboard and cut it to the size you'd like your bookmark to be
  • Cover the board with stickers to create your design
  • Pull a strip of packing tape off and cover the stickers, smoothing out any air bubbles
  • Cut and trim off any excess tape
  • Punch a hole at the top and push the yarn through (putting a piece of tape around the ends of the yarn helps a lot)
  • Pull the two pieces of yarn together, tie a knot, then pinch the yarn tightly and begin to string on your beads
  • Make a knot at the end to secure the beads in place
  • You can single knot it, double knot it, tie a knot around the last bead, or choose not use beads at all (look below for examples)
  • Place inside the latest book you're reading!

Personalized Bookmarks

  • Tips:

  • Magazines, glitter glue, painting, or creating your own drawings are also great options
  • Try using the overlapping technique for a collage effect
  • Make multiple bookmarks to use and share!

Having fun and encouraging the love of reading with these Personalized Bookmarks. Perfect for the school year!
