I've always thought those strips that come off the ziploc boxes would make perfect bookmarks.
We got a chance to try it out since it was recently Grandma's birthday. This would also make a cute gift idea for Mother's Day, Grandparent's Day or for the book reader in your life!
Here's what we used:
Ziploc strip (the part you tear off to get to the bags)
Step 1: Wrap the construction paper around the bookmark. Add some glue on the ends to seal closed.
Step 2: Decorate; we used stickers but you could use crayons or markers.
Step 3: At the top use a hole punch
Step 4: String the ribbon through the hole and tie a bow.
I think our bookmark turned out really cute and Grandma loved it!
I even had my daughter work on some letter sound and recognition by finding each letter in the word Grandma. I sounded out each letter and my daughter had to find the letter and place onto the bookmark.
