DIY Bunny Bookmark

My kiddos like to read.  I certainly try to encourage this.

Because they also like to play video games and watch tv.

 

So anything I can do, to get them wanting to pick up their book, I try.

And if making bookmarks helps, then I’ll do it.

 

This is actually a really cute craft idea that I originally saw here around Halloween time.

I decided to take the idea and make it Eastery.

 

It’s such a simple process…here’s what you’ll need:

  • envelopes
  • some construction paper: pink, white, blue
  • a glue stick
  • scissors
  • a black marker

 

Certainly you don’t have to use envelopes for this, you could cut and fold white paper into a triangle shape and glue it, but I am lazy and the envelopes worked perfect…

Just fold the corner like this…

And cut along the fold so you have a triangle…

Then, using construction paper you will need to make eyes, a nose, teeth and some ears…

Glue everything into place using your glue stick and draw on some whiskers.

That’s it!

An easy bookmark that your kids can make on their own.

The end.

    Love this! I’m a children’s librarian and this is a great spring time craft. Would you mind me using it in my story hour program?

      yes, I do mind actually.

      • MaryE says:

        Just so you know, a librarian isn’t charging for doing the craft, so she is not profiting from this.

        Also….this idea has been around for at least 25 years. You did not come up with it. With a little digging I can find the book or magazine I still have somewhere from back in the 70′s or early 80′s where this ideas was first used. I have been crafting for a long time and have made versions of these in the past.

        Maybe I will find the article and notify the original creator of your plagiarism and they can let you know how much they mind you being stingy with their idea. Lighten up, it’s an Easter craft for Pete’s sake. Don’t you know what Easter is about?

          Hey Mary… Looks like someone who is decidedly NOT the admin of this site put the “yes, I do mind, actually” comment. Of course Kristan or I would LOVE for this craft to be duplicated. We get a ton of “SPAM” comments and that one just slipped through the cracks. The whole idea of showing the step by step process of the craft is so people can duplicate it at home.
          I don’t believe that there is any “plagiarism” involved. And yes, we both indeed DO understand what Easter is all about.

    Hi, I made this bookmark and it didn’t work. I tried to use it in my textbook but it keeps falling out. I failed my Psychology class because it didn’t work properly. I DO NOT RECCOMMEND THIS BOOKMARK TO ANYONE. IT IS FAULTY AND WILL CAUSE YOU TO FAIL YOUR CLASS! PLEASE REMOVE THIS FROM THE INTERNET BEFORE OTHER PEOPLE GET HARMED!
