Books add color to a drab world, and a Rainbow Heart Bookmark adds color to your daily reading time! Make more of these to give out to friends & teachers!
“Books are a uniquely portable magic”, so says Stephen King, master of horror fiction. And guess where you can find magic? At the end of a rainbow!
Finding a pot of gold at the end of a rainbow may be questionable, but you can certainly find magic in a book. And we believe that it’s the best kind of magic, which deserves something special to mark your place – a rainbow would be fitting, don’t you think?
This DIY Rainbow heart bookmark is super easy for kids to make and is also a great way to learn about the order of the colors of the rainbow. This is also a great project for Valentine’s Day, St. Paddy’s Day or back to school. After all, there is never a season when you can’t use a bookmark!

We love making DIY bookmarks, especially when they’re as colorful as this! This is a great project for kids in primary school, and they can also try making these DIY Warli bookmarks, thumbprint heart bookmarks or these cute animal bookmarks.
