Whooooo's whooooo? This know-it-all can help you keep track. Make an owl bookmark and enjoy reading with a new animal friend.

What You'll Need:

  • Construction paper
  • Scissors
  • Craft glue
  • Clothespin

Step 1: Cut out a triangle of brown paper for the top of the owl's head and a smaller yellow triangle for the beak. Cut large circles of white paper and smaller circles of black paper for eyes.

Step 2: Glue all the pieces to the large brown triangle, and then glue the brown triangle to the clothespin. Once the glue dries, use your owl to remind you which page ended your last reading adventure, and which page will begin your next.

Step 3: Once you get the hang of making the owl, create other bookmarks using other animals or subjects. It'll be a great way to leave your own personal "mark."
