Ever since my son learned to read, he has been reading books non-stop. He loves it and will even take it to his bed at night before he falls asleep. I realize he is probably bringing it up with him because he’s trying to avoid going to sleep, but I am totally fine with it as long as he is quiet!
Since his sibling are younger than him and are constantly wanting to “read” the same book as his older brother, his bookmarks keep falling out and I always feel bad that they keep loosing his place. With Valentines Day coming up, and the constant battle with losing his bookmarks, I thought it would be perfect to make these magnetic bookmarks to pass out to his friends. These are the easiest Valentines to make, and might I add a very practical Valentine!
Here’s what you’ll need:
- Emoji Bookmark Printables
- Magnetic Tape
- Lamination Paper (Optional)
First, print out and cut out your bookmarks. If you are going to laminate them, this would be the perfect time to do it, just make sure your child signs their name first!
Next, cut out two equal pieces of magnetic tape. Take one of the pieces and peel off the back and stick it onto the inside of your book mark, like pictured above.
Place the remaining magnetic tape on top of the magnet you just placed on the bookmark. This will help make sure they they line up when the bookmark closes.
Remove the backside of the magnet exposing the sticky side, and fold the bookmark in half, making sure the magnet sticks to the bookmark.
They should look like the picture above when you’re finished. And that’s it! So easy, your kids could even help you with this project!
I remember using these for my bookmarks, and I loved that they never fell out of my book! I’m excited to share this project with my son and hopefully your little ones will love it as well!
Happy Valentine’s Day!
