Do you know I have a wee bit of a bookmark obsession? I am not, in general, a collector, but I loooooveee my bookmark collection. I've already printed and colored my own peace, love and kindness bookmarks. They are the latest edition to our monthly coloring page series, designed for us by children's book author and illustrator, Melanie Hope Greenberg.
Aren't they groovy? Bubble letters always make me giggle. Sixtes throwback, right? Well, peace and kindness are always in style. You don't need to be a retro hippie to know that!
We printed out three sheets. One to keep and use (of course!) and one to cut up and share. We slipped the bookmarks into our library books for unsuspecting patrons to find! Hopefully they will bring a smile to a child's face when she turns the page to find a new bookmark with a kind message just for her.
These kindness bookmarks will also make great party favors. So much better than candy or plastic trinkets! Print out a sheet for each child's goodie bag and your good! (pun!) Or, slip a peace bookmark into the book you are giving as a gift!
