Create bookmarks by cutting rectangles from colored cardstock. Then grab a stack of old magazines and let kids clip out letters to spell their names or fun phrases.
Glue letters to the rectangle, then laminate for durability by sandwiching them between two pieces of clear packing tape.
Finish by punching a hole and attaching ribbon or make an easy, embroidery-floss tassel using the tutorial at PagingSupermom.com. These colorful, homemade bookmarks also make fun gifts for teachers.
