How to make popsicle stick bookmarks These simple popsicle stick bookmarks are a great activity for kids and make fun gifts too!

Howdy Campers!

Stacy here, from Kids Stuff World. I’m excited to be sharing today’s activity with you and I have a feeling you’ll like it too.

1- It helps encourage summer reading

2- It’s a super simple, cute project

3- It’s SO simple the kids can do it all by themselves while you take a break and read a book (or blog)!

Now that’s my kind of project, let’s get to crafting!
Kids love making and giving these simple bookmarks - perfect camp, playdate, or afternoon activity

To make your own popsicle stick bookmarks, you’ll need

– markers
– craft sticks or popsicle sticks
– googly eyes (stick on googly eyes make this craft even easier)
– tiny stickers for embellishing (optional)

Lay all the supplies out on a table and let the kids design and decorate however they wish.

You’ll end up with tons of cool new bookmarks you can hand out to friends, family, neighbors and even get your kids to use this summer.

Kids love projects they can do themselves - these popsicle stick bookmarks are perfect for kids of all ages

Don’t forget to have them make one for you! You’ll need it when they are done with this project.
