How To Make Monster Bookmarks
Let the kiddos create their own Monster Bookmarks to encourage creativity & reading. It’s ok, you can make some too. Go ahead, it’s fun! =)
Color all of the sides of your craft sticks with washable markers, then set aside to dry.
Carefully insert a sharpened pencil into a large pom pom to create a hole. Place a small amount of low temp glue on the chenille stem and insert the stem into the pom pom.
Holding a pom pom at the top of a craft stick, wrap a chenille stem around three times. Clip the remaining length of the chenille stem with scissors and secure it with glue.
Create monsters attaching the remaining chenille stems, wiggle eyes and smaller pom poms with the glue gun.
You’re done! How fun was that? If you tried this craft and loved it, share your thoughts with me. I’d love to hear from you!
