I've said it before, and I'll say it again...I love to read! Someties you can find me reading two or more books at the same time.

That means I need tons of bookmarks! And you know how much I like to make my own. I've already shown you how to make cute animal bookmarks, but here are two more back to school craft ideas for you to consider.

Did I mention how easy these crafts are? One is made from a popsicle stick and the second is made from a recycled cereal box. How cool is that?

Ready to get started?

For the pencil bookmark, here's what you'll need:

Materials

  • One Popsicle stick
  • Tan, white, and pink colored foam sheets
  • A black marker
  • Scissors
  • Glue (I used UHU liquid glue)

Instructions:

  • Cut the foam sheets in the shape of the top and bottom of a pencil (sharpened edge and eraser). Use our picture for reference.
  • Glue onto edges of the Popsicle stick. Let dry.
  • Using the black marker, color the pencil tip black, and then write your name or a note in the middle of the "pencil".

For the cardboard bookmark, here's what you'll need:

Materials

  • Cardboard (we cut out the side of a cereal box for ours)
  • Crayons or colored markers
  • Scissors
  • Hole puncher
  • Yarn

Instructions:

  • Cut a piece of cardboard from the side of a cereal box or any other box you have lying around the house.
  • Draw or decorate any way you like.
  • Using the hole puncher, punch a hole at the top end of the cardboard piece. Tie a piece of yarn through the hole. For instructions on making a tassel, click here.

That's it! You're all done! Have fun reading!
