During the school holidays, I brought our little crafty boy to the mall for some fun holiday crafts. They did a pencil topper that day.

My boy was given this piece of hard construction printed paper. He coloured it.

I thought he did a great job at coloring the horse! πŸ˜€

He then applied glue all over and placed a pencil in the middle.

Fold, seal and let dry.

He loves it so much that he wanted to make more for his teachers so he can give them when school reopens. We printed our own pictures and he did a few..

Footprint Ghost Bookmark

Need a bookmark? Try making your very own footprint ghost bookmark. All you need are foam craft and googly eyes.
The ghost is best done on white craft foam. I did not have any white craft foam at the time of doing this, so I settled with yellow foam instead. Trace the outline of your foot onto the foam. Cut it out. Paste the googly eyes and decorate it.
Cut a small slit slightly below the mouth.
Your footprint ghost bookmark is done!
Quick and easy!

This is another simple to do craft. A bookmark made of foam.
You’ll need some craft foam, key ring and a paper clip. You’ll also need some cookie cutters for shapes.

Cut the foam to the shapes you desire.

Glue them together. Use a needle to poke a tiny hole for the key ring.

Insert the key ring and the paper clip and your foam bookmark is ready!

Envelope Bookmark

All you need is an old envelope, a craft scissors and some craft punch.
Cut the corner of an envelope and decorate it as you like.
The idea is to use the corner of an envelope as a bookmark. How you beautify it is up to you! Simple isn’t it?

Ribbon bookmark

This is too simple to do. All you need is a ribbon, foam and googly eyes. Cut out the foam to any shapes desired and add the googly eyes to make it more interesting. Paste the foam on both sides of the ribbon and on both ends too. Alternatively, you may used nice buttons instead of foams.
