Keepsake Bookmark

What You Need: Construction paper; markers or pencil crayons; scissors; hole punch; brightly colored yarn. Optional: small school photo or color photocopy of head shot of child; glue.

Doing It:

Here's a keepsake a grandchild can make for a grandparent. Grandparents appreciate anything special a grandchild makes for them. A bookmark is a nice gift and a useful item.

Cut a long rectangle from construction paper approximately 2 1/2 inches wide x 6 inches long. Punch a hole near the top of the bookmark and tie a piece of yarn through it as a decorative tassel. The yarn will hang out of the top of the book making it easier to find the exact page.

Decorate the bookmark with some colorful drawings and the grandchild's name. The grandchild can also glue a small school photo or color photocopy of their face onto the bookmark.
