Mother’s Day Printable Bookmark

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.

When you open up a book, this bookmark you will see. Let it remind you of when I was small and when you would read to me. Printable Mother's Day bookmark. Available in grandma too.

Paper Cup Christmas Bells

On an impulse, I bought a box of jingle bells the other day. My daughter ripped into them immediately and started playing with them. She ran and got herself a pipe cleaner and made a jingly anklet. My little girl, was so thrilled about her new musical jewelry that she wanted to make more with our jingle bells and making bells seemed like an obvious, but fun choice. This is a great craft for the holidays. Make a Mr. & Mrs. Claus or some angels. Try a pack of Christmas carolers or just decorate your bells with paint, markers, tissue paper, stickers or gems.
