There is plenty of evidence that vampires and their ilk are invading every corner of our lives. October is their time to come out and play, and making bookmarks is a great way to explore the spooky world of Halloween with kids of all ages.
- thick paper or card stock
- pencil and eraser
- cutting mat
- craft knife
1. Use a pencil and ruler to draw bookmark size rectangles onto a piece of card stock or similar. Fill them with Halloween themed ideas and characters like vampires, witches, cobwebs, etc.
2. Colour in with markers, and ignore the dreadful condition of my eraser. Some things really shouldn’t be photographed.
3. Cut them out using a craft knife and ruler. Laminate if desired, to help them last longer. Find them a good home.

Bookmarks are what I need. Lots of them. I just tear out a piece of paper, receipts or anything within my reach when I need to mark my book.
LOL! So do I, so now I have no excuse 🙂
Clever idea! I actually bought some “monster” bookmarks a few years ago, expecting to put them in Halloween books I give the kids when they can read. It would have been a better idea to follow your lead and help the kids make their own!
I’m sure the ones you bought were wonderful, and can always serve as inspiration for the bookmarks they’ll make in the future!
I especially like the spider web. For a Halloween bookmark it sure is beautiful. But then again, spiderwebs are beautiful.
Thanks Jeannine! I agree, spider webs are beautiful, amazing creations.
I love making bookmarks! I don’t feel that artsy so I just slap a lot of color on ours. You made it look easy, I may try a spider web design. I love to doodle.
I love your idea of simply putting colours. It doesn’t take much to make great looking bookmarks 🙂
