Easter Bunny Corner Bookmarks

Have your kids ever discovered or been introduced to a new craft that they love so much they keep making said craft over and over...and over again? So much that your home becomes overrun with this latest obsession? Or does that just happen with my family?!
Not long ago, my eldest learned how to make corner bookmarks at school and was so excited about them, she came home and taught her little sister how to make them too. Since they are both avid readers, this is a craft they naturally gravitated towards (so I shouldn't have been surprised!). They now have corner bookmarks for all of their school books and the books they are reading at home. Plus, a lot (a WHOLE LOT) of extras!
In the past while, they had slowed down with the corner bookmark making, but with Easter just around the corner, they decided they wanted to make Easter-themed corner bookmarks, just to use at this time of year.
Do you also have craft lovers who happen to be avid readers too? If so, I'm sure they'll love this craft. And if you happen to have not-so-avid readers, maybe this activity will get them a little more excited about reading!
Here's what you'll need:
- square pieces of paper
- crayons, pencil crayons, or markers
- extra pieces of paper for decorating (coloured and white)
- a glue stick
Note: The size of the paper we used to make the bookmarks in the pictures are 20cm x 20cm. I wouldn't go much larger than that but you can definitely go smaller. My kids have made them in all different sizes!
First, fold your square piece of paper in half on the diagonal. Then, fold each corner down towards the middle point.
Next, open the corners back up and fold the top layer of the center piece up towards the middle.
Now, fold the right corner so it sits underneath that top layer center piece you just folded up in the last step.
Do the same with the left side.
And you now have your undecorated corner bookmark. The fun part can now begin — decorating!
Because it's almost Easter, Easter-themed bookmarks are the goal here. They are both really deep into the Harry Potter series at the moment, so of course, there had to be a Harry Potter-looking bunny bookmark in the mix!
When it comes to decorating, your kids can be as extravagant (glitter glue, gluing cut-outs, stickers) or as low-key (just colouring and drawing with crayons, pencil crayons, or markers) as they'd like. If your kids are making bunny corner bookmarks as well, they can make bunny ears, teeth, cut-out pink noses — they can go wherever their creativity takes them!
Once decorating is done and any glue has dried, place the bookmark into a book:
These bunny corner bookmarks would be a fun thing to make and give to friends, grandparents, and other family members during Easter time!
