How Pinteresting: One Bite at a Time

One ‘pin’ a week; that is the goal. Nothing too fancy, nothing too far-fetched; just a good opportunity to finally test out a few of those Pinterest ideas and see which ones really work! Join along and chime in; let us know which projects you’ve been working on and how they’ve turned out!

……

Summer_PinterestWe’re big book readers over here. I think there is current debate going as to who is the fastest reader, myself or my oldest daughter. Amidst all the books we own and borrow, you’d think we have a plethora of bookmarks, but no.

Our ‘pin’ of the week was to make these little monsters to help us out:

Monster Bookmarks

These were super simple to make. Even the littlest of hands could have made these. There are a few suggestions I’d like to make, however:

  • Using plain white paper would be utterly boring AND the paper would be too thin. Consider grabbing a few sheets of patterned or colorful card stock and using that instead.
  • Follow directions when it comes to gluing pieces. The kids might get a bit over-anxious to complete their projects and accidentally glue incorrectly. Make sure they are clear on which pieces should be glued and which should not.
  • Do not strictly stick to the pattern. Our girls got the basics down and then were free to be creative. One of my girls added antennae to their monster’s head; another colored the irises of their monster quite uniquely.

Above all, have some fun and be creative. These little guys are super cute and definitely do the job! I can’t wait to put mine to use.

Time to Chime In: What is your bookmark to book ratio? Do you own enough book markers?

  1. I love those! They would be the perfect bookmarks around here. 😀 Of course, Grace refuses to use a bookmark (she just remembers the page number she was on…weirdo), and I usually just use the library “receipt.” 🙂
