I’m always looking for quick and easy Halloween crafts, ones that are perfect for class parties and playdates.
And this year, since we’re doing a little something different with our class party (more on that later!), we only have a few short minutes for a hands-on activity.
Not for grade four.
This year, the kids will make some Halloween Bookmarks–they’ll make their own using stickers and stamps.
And it’ll be the perfect activity to pair with Halloween Word Search after the kids finish their snacks.
Here’s the skinny. . .
Halloween Bookmarks– Make Your Own!
All you need for Halloween Bookmarks are a few simple things:
- white cardstock
- a mix of ribbons –nothing fancy!–go with Halloween colors: orange, black, white, purple
- Halloween stickers
- alphabet stickers
- Halloween stamps
- hole punch

Please, if you choose to share–and we hope you do!–please share this post instead of the attachment page! Thank you!
Cut out the bookmarks and punch a hole in the top over the circle.
Allow kids to grab the color they want and let them loose on the stickers and stamps!
Encourage kids to design their bookmarks freely.
goodness knows they don’t get enough time to craft and create on their own terms!
But if kids need an idea–or if you want to make some samples–consider:
- Happy Halloween
- Reading Rocks
When kids are finished decorating, tie a ribbon through the center hole, and you’re finished!
Just my kind of activity–no glue, quick and easy, and super-fun for kids to personalize. Sure, there’s a bit of prep–in printing and cutting the bookmarks–but relatively speaking, this is a pretty easy craft.
And parents will love this kind of treat, especially considering the amount of candy kids will come home with after Trick-or-Treating is over.
