Book Buddies Easy DIY Bookmark Craft for Kids

Children’s books are a big deal at our house. My husband and I love to read so naturally we are encouraging our love of reading to our kids. When I signed up to do the school craft, I wanted to encourage all the kids to want to sit down with a good book. I knew right away that I wanted to teach then to make a bookmark, but wasn’t sure what type. I headed to my local Hobby Lobby and saw these adorable pom pom creatures with the feet and the googly eyes. Instantly I knew that I needed to create a bookmark that had the little guy.

So I create book buddies!
