Need a little friend on your reading journey? This Printable Monkey Bookmark is the perfect pal, and it also comes with a Free Template to download!
With everyone being confined home these days, kids are missing meeting their friends. No more play dates, birthday parties or just hanging around outside their homes together. Yes, we do have video calls, but it’s not the same thing!
Kids may miss talking about their day and a buddy to share their daily accomplishments with. So if they’ve built a cool model during the quarantine, they can’t really bring a friend over to show it. If they’ve learned a new football move, they can’t show it to their team. Sending over a picture doesn’t count!
Now since more kids are reading during this period, they need a little buddy to encourage them and get them more excited about reading, and while we can’t substitute a child’s real friends, we’ve got a simple option – a little monkey bookmark! This printable monkey bookmark comes with a free template, so it’s super easy to make!
