They can be used for so many projects, activities and for gifts.
Once the kids create their master pieces, laminate them and they are a perfect gift for grandparents, family and friends as a placemat or a bookmark.
I also always laminate art work my kids have done which are really important to me or a favourite of theirs. One day I want to look back at the first time they drew a person, wrote their name or wrote "to mummy", these are the ones I have made sure are laminated to protect them as my treasures.
When making bookmarks:
- Cut out paper the shape you want the bookmark. Be creative, make different shapes like hearts, squiggly snakes, zigzags, stars.
- Get the kids to draw on one side.
- Stick photos of the kids on the other side.
- Hole punch the top and add some ribbon.
