Kids Craft: Popsicle Stick Bookmarks

I have a confession to make (and everyone loves juicy blog confessions.) I am a…

b o o k    p a g e    b e n d e r

Yes, it's true. I am one of those horrible people that bend the corners of my book pages to keep my place. AND – I used to do it all the time. Until my sister stepped in.

Now I am well aware that this is a major offense in the literary world. And how do I know this is a major offense? I learned this tidbit of info from my sister. She has an English degree…in my book that deems her the expert on this one.

Long before she stepped into her first British Literature class, she was all over me for it. I can remember being a little person with my pigtail-wearing sister lecturing me about folding pages. The one time she caught me doing it, she was furious!

I kept trying to explain that it was ok. It was my book and I just bent it a teensy bit in the corner. It's not like I folded the whole page in half. She wasn't having any of it. She was so desperate to drive this point home that she threatened me.

"I better never ever find a bent corner in one of my books…..evuuuuurhhh."

She knew how well scare tactics worked on me. And it did work….kinda.

Sometimes, if I can't find a piece of paper, string, tissue, thread of cat hair, etc…I will make a miniscule corner bend unnoticeable to the human eye. But, now that I am a mother and I have to everything right, I would be horrified if my kids picked up my little "habit".

So…I decided to have them whip up their own little Popsicle bookmarks.

P.S. – If you ever borrow a book from me and you crease the page….I will forgive you and ask if you enjoyed the book!

Directions:

Have your children eat an ice pop. (I know you might have to do some arm twisting on this one, but go for it.) Wash the stick and let it dry.

Have them paint the popsicle stick and their wooden shape.

Glue together and let dry.

Go get a book!

Thanks for reading!
