As you are well are were we are GREAT fans of Paper Crafts (in fact my new book is ALL about Paper Crafts!!) and more specifically Corner Bookmark Designs. Corner bookmarks are a quick and fun activity – perfect for both in the home and the classroom. They brighten up your school books or latest reads and also make great little gifts for kids to make! What is not to love? Even if your child is not an avid reader.. they will have reading to do at school or pages to mark in workbooks.. make some corner bookmarks to help brighten their day! Now. This “title” is controversial as I have labelled it Corner Bookmarks for Boys. Eeep. Why the gender separation? Why Crafts for Boys? Why not keep it simple and for everyone?
Why Crafts for Boys..
In short – because YOU have asked for it 🙂 I have a son AND a daughter and I would say ALL my crafts are both children. However, there is a clear difference in their interests…. Red Ted simply LOVES the Yeti Bookmark corner, while Pip Squeak can’t get enough of the Mermaid Bookmarks. Red Ted loves Star Wars and well, Pip Squeak doesn’t. There are plenty of girls that do of course… but this post is simply to help those parents or teachers of “reluctant boys”. I created a Crafts for Boys round up years ago and had SUCH positive feedback from it, that I thought it would be helpful to organise our bookmarks into “for boys” too.
This of course means EVERYONE, depending on their personal interests can make these. And also means that boys may want to check out the rest of our Corner Bookmark Designs as there are plenty more ideas for them! All the bookmarks in this post are based on the traditional and super easy Origami Bookmark Corner!
Other Boy Themed Corner Bookmarks
This is our “general theme” Corner Bookmark Section.. the designs didn’t really fit into any other categories… personally I think most boys will fast foward to the computer game and TV section. But let’s start with this ecclectic bunch first!
Monster Corner Bookmarks (where it all began!!!)
Fun with circuits with these “Light Up my Life” Bookmark Corners! Aren’t they clever? Complete with free printable!
