Jam-packed with sentiment and unique as your child's thumbprint, these berry bookmarks make practical Valentine's gifts for friends, teachers, and, of course, school librarians.
|Prep Time: Under 1 hour|
|What you need:|
|Light-colored card stock
Nontoxic red stamp pad
|Seasons: Valentine's day|
|Materials: paper, ribbon|
|1.||Cut out 2 ½- by 8-inch rectangles from the card stock. On scrap paper, have your child practice printing a heart-shaped berry by pressing her thumb evenly on the stamp pad and stamping two overlapping prints in the form of a V. Then she can print a berry on each bookmark.|
|2.||When the ink dries, use colored markers to draw on seeds
and stems, borders, a sweet message, such as "I'm berry fond of
you," and her name. Finally, punch a hole in each bookmark and
tie on a pretty ribbon.
