3 Crafts for the Bookworm Kids

by Lynn Lilly, Sep 07 2020

Do your kiddos love to read? My daughter loves books and I hope she never loses that love. This week I am sharing 3 fun bookworm crafts on my weekly broadcast on the Crayola Facebook Page! Make sure to tune in every Tuesday at 1:00pm EST for 3 new crafts! 

Shop all the supplies I am using for today's projects at Crayola.com

Project 1: Bookmarks

These fun construction paper bookmarks can be made into crayons or pencils and are perfect for saving a page! 

Crayola Crayon Bookmarks

Materials:

  • Crayola Construction Paper
  • Crayola Glue 
  • Crayola Markers
  • Scissors
  • Pencil

Directions:

  1. Cut a 8-10" x 2" strip of construction paper.
  2. Fold the strip in half. 
  3. Cut the ends of the strip into a point. Leave it as a point if you want it to be a pencil or cut the tip-off to look like a crayon. 
  4. Cut black wavey strips to the width of the pencil and glue to both ends. 
  5. Write your name with markers on the bookmark. 

 

Project 2: Book Covers

My daughter loves books but sometimes she is a little hard on them. Create easy book covers for storybooks and school books! 

Crayola Book Cover

  2. Decorate the cover. Have fun with glitter glue, cut out shapes or create a pocket to hold your bookmark.
