Weekend Fun: Paint Splat Bookmarks

Paint Splat Bookmarks

Turn paint splatters into monsters to decorate a bookmark to keep your place when reading a scary book!

What you need:

  • Strips of light-colored cardstock, approx 2 x 8 inches
  • Paint
  • Brush or plastic spoon
  • Cardboard box (pizza box or shoe box or anything similar)
  • Black marker
  • Stapler
  • Ribbon or narrow paper strip (one for each bookmark)

What you do:

  • Place one or two strips in the cardboard box.
  • Scoop up just a little paint with the brush or spoon.
  • Hold the brush (or spoon) over the box and let the paint drop onto the cardstock strip.
  • If any of the paint blobs are too thick, smear them a little with a paper towel or your finger.
  • Let the paint dry.
  • Use the black marker to add faces, hair, arms and legs, shoes – whatever you like!
  • Fold a short piece of ribbon or thin paper in half and staple to the top of the bookmark.
  • Name your monster creations!

Come to the library to choose just the right scary book for your bookmark.
