As I have stated before, I am a self-proclaimed craft hoarder. So after finishing up our Rainbow Shamrocks, I had some paper scraps I just couldn’t throw out. Using a technique that I enjoy, V & I created these beautiful Rainbow Bookmarks.
This craft is not only toddler-friendly and easy to set up, but it gives you the perfect opportunity to talk to your little one about all the different colors!
It is fun to work on together, and with the tips below they are bound to end up with a great finished product!
- A sheet of construction paper. On of each color of the rainbow.
- A hole punch.
- Clear Contact Paper
- A piece of white cardstock.
How to make your own Rainbow Bookmarks:
Start by cutting out a piece of contact paper.
You want it 8 inches long and an inch wide for every bookmark you want to make. I wanted 3 total so ours is 8″-3″.Now carefully peel off the backing and tape down to flat surface sticky side up.
We like to do ours on the window. The light coming through during the project looks neat.Fold the paper backing at the 2″ mark and start punching out Red dots for your kiddo.
Let them cover the sticky space with dots.
Once they are finished with the red dots. Peel the back down one more inch.
Then start punching out Orange dots. Let them fill in the sticky spot.Continue this process with Yellow, Green, Blue, and finally Purple.
You should have an inch of unused contact paper at the bottom. Peel the rest of the backing off and press your cardstock onto the dots.Remove from window and press down well. Use the backing to cut into inch wide rainbow bookmarks!Aren’t They Adorable!We had so much fun making these that we used up our extra dots to make a giant heart too!This technique could be used in so many fun ways with your little one. Don’t forget to Pin this post to keep in your back pocket for a quick go to activity! The older kids enjoy it too…
