Polar Bear Bookmark

We never have enough bookmarks at our house.

I don’t know what happens to them. But, I suspect they’re hanging out the missing socks and hair ties.

Where do those things disappear to?

I’m constantly grabbing any scrap of paper I can find to mark my place just because I can’t find an actual bookmark.

I’d prefer to use something cute, like this adorable peeking polar bear bookmark.

How to make your polar bear bookmark:

Start by tracing your milk cap. This will be the polar bear’s head.

Next, use the ruler to make two straight lines down from the circle, about 6 inches in length and 1-1/4 inches apart. Connect the two lines with another straight line at the bottom.

Now, go back to your head. Add two small half circles for the ears. Also add another circle inside the head in the bottom half. This is your bear’s snout.

Add two little eyes and a nose.

Finally, draw your paws. Start from your head and draw a long oval-ish shape. Draw three simple claws on each side.

Finish your bookmark

Trace the entire bookmark with your black marker.

Carefully cut out around the entire bookmark. Use the black marker to color in any white spots on the edges left over from your cutting.

Finally, use the craft knife to cut around the two sides and the bottom of the paws. You do not want to cut the top edge under the chin.

I have this ceramic craft knife that I love to use. It’s easier to hold, stays sharper, and is much safer than a retractable craft knife. If you are ready to let your child use a tool like this, this is a great choice. If not, have an adult do this step.

Having this cute little guy peeking up from my book just makes me want to settle in and start reading.

Hopefully my polar bear bookmark won’t end up with all the other missing bookmarks. I want to keep this one around.
