Watercolor Bookmark: a simple and pretty craft even the kids can make to celebrate Mothers Day!
With Easter coming a little later this year, Mothers Day is just around the corner! As a mother myself, I just love the little crafts my kids make for me. I have a whole kids gallery wall dedicated to it! These watercolor bookmarks are such a simple craft that the kids can do and your loved ones can enjoy! We even added a little fingerprint heart in the bottom corner. When creating little craft projects for others I like to keep things small and simple. Unless you have quite a bit of storage space, keeping all of your kids craft projects can get overwhelming. So simple is best in my home 🙂 These watercolor bookmarks are simple and useful while still being specially made my the little ones in your life. Make sure you date your watercolor bookmarks too! It’s always fun to look back over the years and see how their creativity grew.
SUPPLIES FOR WATERCOLOR BOOKMARKS:
- Thick Paper, you can also use post paper
- Watercolor paints for kids
- Paint Brush
- Hole Punch
First being by having your child use their watercolor paint to paint a design on some paper. This can definitely be and adult project too! Feel free to paint any type of design you want! My children are younger so they just painted back and forth with different colors. They loved it though!
Once the paint on the paper has fully dried, cut the paper into multiple bookmark shapes. The amount you get will depend on what size you make the bookmarks! You can even make the bookmarks in different shapes. Hearts, squares, and even circle shapes would all be fun options! I had my son use his pointer finger to create a small heart on the bottom corner of the bookmark. We love how it added that special “I LOVE YOU” feel to it.
We punched a hole in the top middle of the book mark and tied a matching ribbon! This step is optional but the ribbon really adds a fun detail and gives it that classic bookmark look.
My kids love being able to make things for me, their grandmas, and their friends. This craft is great if they are wanting to make a bunch of little gifts to pass out.
Do you keep all of your kids Mothers Day gifts year after year? How do you store them?
