Get ready for school with our free Printable Animal Bookmarks for Summer Reading. The perfect Back to school Printable to cheer up your reading time!
Between the pages of a book, is a wonderful place to be
When I was a kid, one summer we visited my aunt’s place in a different city which had a big bookstore, with several floors. It was from there that I got my copy of Margaret Mitchell’s Gone with the Wind and I remember staying up till 3 A.M. to finish the book!
Yes, Gone with the Wind is quite the page-turner. Being vacation time, staying up till 3 wasn’t a huge problem, but not so when it’s a school night! At the same time, you don’t want to put the brakes on a reading habit that’s been carefully and lovingly cultivated over summer. So what do you do? Make your own Back to School Bookmarks!
You’re probably busy with all the prep work for Back to School, so these printable animal bookmarks are the perfect no-fuss and quick solution. What’s more, these go perfectly with our Printable Animal School Labels so you have a custom-made coordinated set to show your friends this year!
Back to School Printable Animal Bookmarks
- Color Printer
- Good quality, thick printer paper
- Pen Knife or Paper Cutter
How to Make your Printable Animal Bookmarks:
1. Download the free Animal Bookmarks template to your computer and print it out in color. Use can print it on a 200 GSM cardstock / Glossy photo paper or on an ordinary A4 / Letter Sized paper and then laminate so that it can withstand not just frequent usage, but the paper cutter’s onslaught as well.
2. Cut out bookmarks carefully, paying extra attention to the animal heads, particularly the ears, antlers etc.
3. We now need to make slits along the animal paws so that you can hook the bookmark on a page. A pen knife with a good grip is ideal for the job – but please don’t leave it to the kids!
4. Your Printable Animal Bookmarks are now ready to use! Place the bookmark behind the page you want to mark and slide it down so the paws are in front. Isn’t it delightful to see these cute happy faces smiling at you whenever you open the book?
Ernest Hemingway said that there is no friend as loyal as a book. Maybe, but these little guys come close since you can depend upon them to hold your place till you come back. Now you can close that book and get a good night’s sleep – you won’t lose your place!
