DIY Rainbow Corner Bookmark

DIY Rainbow Bookmarks

This Rainbow Corner Bookmark is the perfect craft to make with your kids to welcome Spring into your home, or to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day.

This is a fantastic project for your children to exercise their hand muscles and their scissor skills.

It is also very inexpensive, simple, and mess-free!

You can use this craft to introduce the science behind rainbows or to talk about colors.

It can also be used to start a conversation about diversity. Each color is different from the other, but they are all vibrant and part of a bigger beautiful thing.

Use them as a resource to motivate your kids to not give up when things get harder. You know, no rainbow comes without rain.

Or, simply craft them to commemorate the Irish St. Patrick’s celebration.

Regardless of what you choose to do with these bookmarks, they will end up bringing happiness to your kids’ reading time.

They come with kid-friendly directions and a printable template that will make the crafting process even easier to set up.

Are you ready to bring color into your books?
