You’ll need:

  • Popsicle sticks or fan handles
  • Paint
  • Scissors
  • Craft foam sheets or construction paper
  • Glue
  • Markers

Step 1. To begin these handprint flower DIY bookmarks for kids, have children paint their Sticky Sticks completely green, except for the area where the sticky adhesive tip is. Repeat for each flower bookmark you want to make. Set aside to let them dry completely.

Step 2. While the paint is drying, go ahead and trace your child’s hands on the desired color of craft foam and trim those out. You should also cut out some leaves from the green craft foam.

Step 3. Now you are ready to assemble your bookmarks. Simply peel off the plastic tab on the adhesive tip and place your handprint cutout on top. Now grab your glue and glue your leaves onto the sticky stick stem. At this point in time you can also add other embellishments you see fit. Then set it all aside to let it dry completely before using as a bookmark! Remember – you can also use these as spring decorations or gift them away as a nice gesture!

Happy Spring!
