Make school bookmarks

Friday's Grand Connection Fun
by Mary May Larmoyeux

Now is a great time for us to make some special bookmarks for the school-age grands. If they live nearby, we could have fun making them together.

For long-distance grandparenting, we could make the bookmarks ourselves and mail them … or send materials to the grandkids so they can personalize their own bookmarks.

It's easy to make a bookmark. Just:

1) Cut card stock into bookmark size (approximately 1 ½” by 5).
2) Decorate the paper with sketches, pictures, Bible verses, stickers, etc.
3) Cover with clear contact paper or have the bookmarks laminated at a teacher-supply store.
4) Punch a hole in the top and loop a ribbon or tassel through it.

That's all there is to it.

I googled "making bookmarks" and found a great website:  How to Make a Bookmark. It has some very creative ideas! If you scroll down you'll find a video "How to Make Braded Bookmarks."

          "Let the wise listen and add to their learning, 
                  and let the discerning get guidance."
                                                                Proverbs 1:5

Have fun,
