Felt Animal Bookmarks


We needed a little project this morning to help ward off the post-vacation grumpies. Seeing as we are a little bit behind in our summer reading goals, I thought some friendly felt critters might beckon the kiddos into books again. So out came the felt and glue and scissors to make some bookmark animals.


I made up some patterns for a mouse and elephant...if you (like me) do not have super-great drawing skills, try finding inspiration in kids' books, coloring books, or google images of clip art. Some basic circle, triangle, and oval shapes can be used to make up all kinds of whimsical animals.


We cut out our felt pieces, used craft glue to assemble them, and added whiskers & tails using some rafia cord (or try thin ribbon, embroidery thread...whatever you have around).


Finally, a long strip of felt was added to make it bookmark-ish. So cute!


Okaayyy, we're off to tackle that pile of library books we haven't finished yet!
