Last year over on Reading in the Wildwood. I talked about these fun Halloween bookmark templates. I had such a fun time doing them last year that I decided to do them again this year. It’s such a fun bookish Halloween craft that doesn’t take a ton of time.
It’s also family friendly. I even got my husband involved this time. His is the one on the left and, honestly, I think he did a better job than me. It was so fun to sit down and relax with him. We don’t get a lot of time to do crafty things together, but when we do we love it. It would also be a perfect craft for kids. And I still love the idea of handing them out to trick or treaters.
This years bookmarks are from Emily Cromwell Designs on Etsy. She has such a cute shop and I’m a little obsessed with it. I printed mine off on cardstock so that they would be a bit more sturdy. And if you want to get fancy with it you could even laminate them. Then we just colored them in with my Crayola Super Tip Markers. And I’m tempted to print some off to see if I could paint them with acrylic paint, because I think that would be adorable. So if you want a fun bookish Halloween craft to do with your family this would be a great option. Plus, you might could even sneak a fun Halloween book into your child’s candy bag to go with their new bookmark. Or, to my husband, you could sneak one into your wife’s candy bowl. I promise she won’t be mad.
