Well, both of my kids will be in high school this year...so I'm sharing some of the ideas that I didn't get to use with my own kids (but I still think they're cute!).
I have one child that loves to read (like Mom) and one that doesn't (like Dad in his early years). I struggled with ways to get my non-reader to enjoy it more. Looking back at the little boy that he was, I think he might have enjoyed these bookmarks!
This craft is easiest if you use scrapbook paper with a different design on both sides (take your child shopping with you...to a place like Archivers or Michael's).
Using a straight edge, draw a 2.5 x 2.5 inch square in one of the corners of the paper. Connect another 2.5 x 2.5 inch square to each edge of the original square...
Again, using a straight edge, bisect the outside squares as shown (I scribbled out the part that you won't use).
Cut along the outside edges:
If you are making teeth, use a white strip of cardstock approximately 3.5" x 1". Cut out the teeth as shown:
Score the remaining pencil lines from your original cut-out. Carefully fold one triangle over to cover half of the remaining square. Using a glue stick, apply glue to the entire top side of the triangle. Attach the teeth and then fold down the remaining triangle to close the teeth between the layers.
You will be left with a pocket that can be slipped over the edge of a book page. Use a circle punch to create eyes (or use stick-on googly eyes). Flip the paper over and make another one that looks a little bit different!
