DIY Valentine Series – Paint Strip Valentine Bookmarks
Pin to Pinterest
This is a fantastically simple craft that the kids will love to get their hands on. Besides the fact that hole punches are just a fun thing to play with, this is a great fine motor activity for children. Pick up some free paint sample strips at Wal-Mart, or Home Depot – make sure to grab some traditional girl colors like pink and purple and some great yellows, greens, and blues for boys. If you already have ribbons and hole punches on hand this is a totally free craft! You can use a hole punch or small hand punch to cut out shapes, then just add stickers, glitter, and markers or crayons, or stamps if you really want to step it up. Make up a bunch for classmates, teachers, grandparents. I had the kids even make one for me instead of dog-earring the pages of all my books. Creating their own bookmark may just encourage a love of reading, so this craft really is a win-win all the way around- simple, frugal, promotes literacy and fun!
