I can’t speak for all the moms out there, but this mom loves books. I love reading books for me and I love reading to my little girl. It is very common for me to bookmark our pages with cards or small cut outs of drawings that my daughter makes me. Lately, I have been reading to my daughter less and less. My six-year-old has been learning to read and has been wanting to read books on her own more frequently. I knew this day would eventually come. It is here and it is the inspiration for these Mother’s Day bookmarks. This is a sweet keepsake that will make you smile every time you read a book. A grandma and blank name template are also available.

What you will need:
Printable template available in grandma and blank (see below)
Crayons, markers or colored pencils
Scrapbook scissors (optional)
Print out one of the templates below. You can pre-cut the bookmarks if working with multiple children or you can let your child decorate all four on the template. Under the poem on the bookmark there is space for your child to draw a small picture or write a message of their own
My daughter drew on all four and made a special story for me using the four bookmarks.
Next, cut out the bookmarks if you haven’t all ready and then cut out pieces of cardstock slightly bigger than the bookmarks.
Glue the bookmark onto the cardstock.
Use scrapbooking scissors around the edge for a more decorative look or leave as is.
You may also choose to laminate your bookmarks to extend the life of your keepsake bookmark.
When your bookmark is complete, use a hole punch to punch one hole at the top of your project.
String a piece of yarn, string or ribbon through the hole.
Use your new bookmarks on your favorite new read.
