Cute book marks made from ice cream sticks and leftover glitter foam and felt pieces.

I would especially recommend this activity for younger kids. My 4-year old daughter decided what animals we were making and how they should look and she then painted the sticks while I cut the foam and felt pieces out for her to glue on. A perfect activity that involved us both and did not take too long either. Each animal took about 5-10 minutes so it’s up to you how many you want to make and how much decoration you want to add to each animal. Our hen is very simple, but still cute in it’s own way. If you are looking for another best out of waste project, check our my seashell and sand frames. So pretty and very easy to do for all ages.

Instead of painting the plain ice cream sticks, you can also buy pre-coloured ones from your local art and craft store. It will save you the painting mess that is sure to follow.

I have made simple pictures of the pieces needed for each of our animals, but there are of course plenty of other ways to do this.

Kids can also make these by themselves as gift for parents, grandparents or teachers. Who wouldn’t love to own a cute homemade book mark?

To make the pig book mark you will need a pink ice cream stick, two medium-sized googly eyes and a curly tail. We used a pink button for the snout and folded the pink felt ears slightly in the middle to resemble real pig ears.
