Every mom wants and deserves a time out. No, not the kind that kids get when they’re being punished, but the kind when she is free of responsibility and can truly unwind. Since reading a favorite way to escape real-world duties and to truly relax, a custom kid-made bookmark is a super sweet idea.
The great thing about this craft is you can use many things to create it.
From craft or construction paper, felt, or cardboard, help your child safely cut your shape of choice, then decorate any way you choose. You can even opt to use a popsicle stick or two (glued side by side,) depending on what you have at home.
If you go the paper, felt, or cardboard route, once your creation is fully dried, use a hole punch to create an opening at the top, then tie a string or ribbon through. It’s an optional step that will help her find her spot that much more easily.
There’s no wrong way to make something from the heart, so use what you have at home plus a bit of your shared creativity, and just have fun with it! The goal is to let her know she is thought of and appreciated — so she’s going to love whatever you come up with.
