This months Craft Hub will see little ones take delight in making these sweet book marks for Mother's Day, which will be well received by Mothers, Aunts and Grannies for use in their diaries and books.

Each child taking part in this craft will need:

1 lollipop stick
1 tiny circle foam shape
1 circle foam shape
2 tear drop foam shapes
2 googly eyes
4 craft jewels

You will also need some PVA glue

Older children will enjoy using their imaginations to create different characters, while younger ones will get to grasps with their pinching skills.

Enjoy

Step 2


Glue the tear drop foam shapes to the back of the bigger circle foam shape to create ears.

Here we have created cats ears.

Step 3


Flip the circle foam shape over so that the ears are now facing up. Stick the lollipop stock to the middle of the ears. This will leave a gap between the circle and the lollipop stick where the pages of a book will go.

Now flip the lollipop stick over again and stick the googly eyes and smaller cirlce foam shape on top of the bigger circle.  Your cat book mark is starting to take shape.
