With Father’s Day coming up, we thought these fun monster bookmarks would go down well.. the best thing is – you can make any design you want.. it doesn’t have to be a Monster Corner Bookmark, but you could make an Alien, an Owl a penguin and bear… and lots lots more.. Make the basic Origami Bookmark and then let your imagination be your limits! We are actually going to make this simple Origami Bookmark in Pip Squeak’s reception class (4-5yrs olds) in a couple of weeks time. It will be interesting to see how they rise to the challenge of basic paper folding techniques. I know they will ADORE the decorating aspect.
I also think that these monster bookmarks would be a great Halloween Craft and the Owl Bookmarks work really well as a small teacher appreciation gift or simple as a Back to School Autumn theme. So, though we are making them as a Father’s Day Craft now.. I think the possibilities are much broader!
