Hello again! Hope you had a good weekend. As you may know, my book, Jacob Starke Loves the Dark, contains a lot of nocturnal animals.
One of the most popular activities I’ve done with it are these nocturnal animal bookmarks that go on the corner of your book. I can’t claim that this type of bookmark was devised by me, but this is my version.
17: Make a nocturnal animal bookmark!
With these bookmarks, it’s all about the folding. Here’s how my lovely assistant made the badger. You will need:
- White paper or thin card
- Black and pink paper (or you could just colour with felt pens or crayons)
- Googly eyes if you’ve got them – though, again, you could equally well draw the eyes with a felt tip
Here’s the fox and the bat versions; same basic folds, just a few different features!
Have fun! And be warned: these bookmarks are highly addictive; we’ve made loads of them!
