Celebrate Someone Special
Talk to your child about his mom or another special person in his life. What is her favorite color? If your child does not know, think about the colors of some of her favorite things or things she likes to wear.
Step 1: Things You'll Need
Collect the items from the materials list.
Little Hands Tip: Sing a happy song while you work on the bookmark.
Step 2: Draw It
After talking about her favorite things, choose Mom's favorite colors from your collection of crayons and markers. Draw flowers, hearts, or whatever Mom likes all over a piece of white paper.
Step 3: Cut It Out
Cut a long strip (approximately 5 inches long by 2 inches wide) from the paper. The idea is to have a strip of paper completely covered in flowers.
Step 4: Glue It
Glue the strip of flowery paper onto a piece of construction paper, about ¼ inch from the edge.
Step 5: Create the Border
Cut the bookmark out of the construction paper, leaving a ¼-inch border on all sides of the bookmark.
Step 6: Add You!
Carefully cut out a small photo to fit on the bookmark. If you don't have a photo, you can draw a picture of yourself!
Step 7: Glue It
Now, glue the photo or drawing to the top center of the bookmark.
Step 8: Sign It with Love
For an extra special touch, you can help your child write his or her name on the bookmark.
Little Hands Tip: Write your name in your favorite color. Add stars or glitter!
Decorate an envelope with crayons or markers to put the gift in. Once the glue is dry, give it to Mom. She will think of you every time she uses it!
