Getting kids to read can sometimes take some cajoling, that's ok. Sometimes kids need to make things cool and sometimes cool means their favorite character. This bookmark is so easy to do, and would make a fun craft for a themed birthday party.
1. Gather your materials. You will need some card stock, some themed confetti ( find it in the party section of Target or Wal-Mart) or character stickers, glue, scissors, ribbon and a hole punch.
2. Cut your card stock into the shape you want. If you want you could have your child color it at this stage too.
3.Punch a hole at the top, not too close to the edge!
4. Add the character confetti ( or stickers) with glue.
5. add the ribbon and let dry.
Hopefully little things like this will help make reading cool and a little more fun for kids who aren't as eager to pick up a book and dive in.
