Hands up if you or your littles are participating in a local summer reading program! My two year old is, and he absolutely loves it – we’ve ended up reading something like 8 hours in the last three weeks. That’s a lot of times through Chicka Chicka Boom Boom and The Very Hungry Caterpillar, let me tell you šŸ™‚

Anyway, I think reading is more fun with a fun bookmark, so I designed these summer fun reading bookmarks. There’s four designs: a sun, a watermelon, a flip flop, and a beachball. They’re made from fun foam, popsicle sticks, and glue, so it’s a project even a pretty little kiddo can make. If they can glue and cut, then this project’s for them!

All you need is the aforementioned foam, popsicle sticks, and glue, along with some paint, scissors, this hand-dandy template, and something to trace with.

To make the bookmarks, start by painting your sticks. You can also color on them with Sharpies, or wrap them in washi tape, if painting’s not your thing. And it’s not the worst thing in the world to leave them undecorated at all – I just happen to like the burst of color the paint gives them.

While the sticks are drying, cut out the templates, then trace them onto the fun foam you’ll be using. I use a pen for tracing.

Cut out the shapes, then glue them together.

Once you’ve got your shapes glued, all that’s left is to glue them to the stick. Elmer’s glue works just fine for this, but if you want extra security, go ahead and use hot glue to make sure the shapes stay on.
