In this post, learn how to make easy Heart Bookmarks, the perfect Valentine’s Day craft for readers of all ages!
How to Make Heart Bookmarks
One of the best parts of parenting older children is introducing them to novels. Nothing feels more like home than wrapping up in a soft quilt—chapter book in hand—with a little boy snuggled on each side!
Now, typically I’m a “page-folder,” but my oldest recently informed me that, “We shouldn’t fold the corners of the pages because it doesn’t show respect to the book.” (Yeah…that’s the not-so-best part of parenting older children!)
Nevertheless, not wanting to interfere with what he’s learned in school and how we handle library books at home, I agreed. We gathered at the kitchen table and crafted some charming heart bookmarks, perfect for Valentine’s Day!
To Make This Heart Bookmark Craft You Will Need
Directions for Heart Bookmark
1. After gathering supplies, invite kids to draw and cut 2 paper hearts—1 large and 1 small.
This craft would’ve been hastened by using heart punches in 2 sizes (large and small), but I taught the boys how to draw and cut hearts the old-fashioned way.
2. Place 3 glue dots equally across the top of the small heart (1 on the left, 1 in the middle, and 1 on the right). Press the papers firmly to secure.
Pair these bookmarks with a sweet story for Valentine’s Day!
