Make a bookmark.jpg

This is a fun and easy activity to do with your child – perfect to fill a rainy afternoon or a quiet morning at home.

All you need is a piece of paper or card, and things to decorate it.

  • First, help your child cut out a neat rectangle of paper or card. An empty cereal box works great for this!
  • Next, ask them how they would like to decorate their bookmark. They could colour it in with pens or crayons, write their name on it, or maybe add the name of their favourite book.
  • To make the bookmark extra special, you can add a piece of ribbon or colourful string.
