Military Thank You Bookmarks

I was told that soldiers overseas read a lot, so I thought it would be nice to make some bookmarks that could help them keep their place while reading!

Materials:
Card Stock
Crayons
Clip Art
Glue/Mod Podge

Directions:
1.  Cut out bookmarks from white or colored card stock.

2.  Have your child color and decorate them, including a “Thank You” Message.

3.  Cover the completed book marks with Mod Podge to protect the homemade gifts.

Educational/Other Activities

  • Language Arts:  Have your child create thank you cards to go with the bookmarks.
  • Science:  Discuss magnets and their properties.  Then create a magnetic picture frame to honor a soldier your family knows.
  • Create A Care Package:  Include the book mark and other needed items for the soldier.  Some frequently requested items are deodorant, snack mixes, ziploc bags, toothpaste, toothbrushes, sunscreen, phone cards, etc.
