The Importance of Reading with Your Child
While this easy paper craft little monsters are awesome and fun, let's not overlook the fact of how important it is to read with your child, or to have them read something every single day.

Monster Bookmark Step-by-Step Instructions
Find out how to make this great Halloween bookmark! It's such a handy homemade craft!
First, print out the PDF templates, then cut out the templates. Use the templates to trace and cut out your monster from a sheet of paper in the colors you would like your monsters to be in.
Now, take the monster’s antenna, and glue it on the top of the monster’s head. Allow the glue to dry.
Then, take the monster’s hands, and glue them on both sides of the monster’s body.
Finish making the body by gluing both feet on the bottom side of the monster.
Glue the round eye shape on the center point of the monster’s face. If you have googly eyes, these look great with those too.
Then, use a marker pen to draw the eyeball and the mouth.
Cut out two pointy teeth and a tongue using a white piece of paper according to the size of your monster’s mouth. Then glue them on the monster’s face.
Now for the final step, cut out a strip from thick card paper (or popsicle stick) and glue it on the back of the monster.
Viola, you have some adorable monster bookmarks. We do hope you enjoy these Halloween bookmarks as much as we do.
Happy Crafting and Happy Halloween!
