DIY Bookmarks for Kids

This is a special page full of wonderful ideas for DIY bookmarks for kids!  

Reading has always been my favorite thing to do for fun.  Still love the library.  Still love holding a real book, although many others have opted for e-readers.  Not going there unless I’m forced to!!

I will also admit that I collect bookmarks; the fancier the better!

To keep kids interested in reading, get them working on homemade bookmarks. The kiddos love to make their own personal designs, and this page has a wide selection of fun handmade bookmark ideas for kids.

Here you will find DIY bookmarks for kids of all ages!  Bookmarks are so useful (read: no more tissues as bookmarks), and they make great gifts.  Most of the ideas here are fairly easy to make, even for the youngest readers.

There are also more complicated bookmarks like the ones that can be found in pricey bookstores!  Be sure to take a look at the Beaded Thong Bookmarks from Thrifty Fun.  I am planning to make these as holiday gifts for my nieces this year.

How do you make a bookmark out of popsicle sticks?

There are several ideas here that use popsicle sticks as the foundation for the DIY bookmarks.  Wide craft sticks can be colored with bright markers and decorated with stickers.  This is great for the little ones.

Another idea below is to attach homemade felt flowers to the tops of popsicle sticks.  They are so adorable!

How do you make a creative bookmark?

There are many creative bookmark ideas made with ribbons, beads, cross stitch and even duct tape!  Scroll down to see some of these unique and creative bookmark ideas for kids.

The duct tape bookmark ideas for kids are very popular, and several can be found below.  If the kids like to work with duct tape, we have other duct tape ideas to check out.

This page also has links to creative homemade bookmarks that are made from crochet, which is a novel idea!  Using a crochet hook and yarn, create a cute bookworm to keep the place marked in a book.

Crochet is a fun activity for kids and adults alike. If you want more crochet ideas, we have those too!

What should I write in my bookmarks?

Many people like to have an inspirational quote written on their homemade bookmarks. Personalizing a DIY bookmark is great when given as a gift.  There are ideas below that have sayings for a fathers’ day bookmark as well as a bookmark made for grandma.

Some inspirational quotes that are nice for homemade bookmarks for kids are:

  • “Just one more chapter..”
  • “Eat, sleep, read”
  • “I read past my bedtime”
  • “Sleep is good but books are better”
  • “So many books, so little time”

Scroll on down this page for a variety of bookmark ideas for kids.  Then head to the library to grab a stack of books and put those bookmarks to good use!
