Hanging Out Bookmarks

Hanging Out Bookmarks craft

What's that hanging out over your book? Whimsical long arms make these clever bookmarks stand out on any page!

  • 1.

    How many times have you wanted to find where you left off in a book? Instead of bending down corners of pages, make a bookmark that's about the book! This one hangs from the page.

  • 2.

    Who's the main character of a book you're reading? You could make your bookmark look like that character. Or show an animal from the book. On a recycled file folder, draw a long rectangle with Crayola® Erasable Colored Pencils.

  • 3.

    On the top third of the rectangle, draw the character's hands and arms. Draw the character's shoulders and head above the rectangle-this is the part that hangs out of your book.

  • 4.

    With Crayola Scissors, cut out the figure. Release arms from the rectangle by cutting along their sides.

  • 5.

    With Crayola Washable Markers, color in and draw details on your bookmark. Use your imagination to show what your character looks like.

  • 6.

    Hang your bookmark with its arms over the front of the page where you stopped reading.
