I recently started reading chapter books to the kids. In a moment of insanity, I bought five books and in three consecutive nights started reading all five.

From this I realized two things:

  1. It is better to complete one book at a time with small kids

  2. If you are going follow my lead, you are going to need some bookmarks. Not having them results in five books lying around open in order to keep the page. I didn't need this in my constantly untidy house and you probably don't either.

So I created these bookmarks featuring some of the animals in my book On The Island of Barbados. Not only are they helpful but they make a great colouring activity for the kids.

In my opinion anything that can keep them busy for a few minutes whilst I do some laundry is a winner.


  1. Print on heavier paper like Card Stock. Print as many as you need for personal use. File or finished project may not be sold.

  2. Color the bookmarks (if using the colouring sheet)

  3. Cut the bookmarks out using a scissors or a cutter.

  4. Laminate for a longer lasting bookmark (optional).

  5. Punch a hole in the top middle and add a ribbon or pompom (optional)

There are four different bookmarks on the page for personal or classroom use. You can also use them for parties favors or as a party activity, for student end of term gifts, a library craft, home schooling activity, or anything else you come up with.
