We are adding to our collection of bookmarks kids can color and call their own! Enhance the summer reading experience with these cheery printable seaside bookmarks from children's book author and illustrator, Melanie Hope Greenberg.
It's impossible to pick a favorite, but if pressed, I'd have to pick the smiling whale. What about you?
Download and Print: (by clicking on the following link you agree to our terms of service* see below) Breezy on-the-seashore bookmarks
Tip: for longer lasting seaside bookmarks print out on heavy paper or card stock. But never fret! If one gets lost or torn, simply print out another and color anew!
Obviously every child who is spending time at the beach (under an umbrella, slathered with sunblock, of course!), or who is dreaming of spending time at the beach, needs these four seaside bookmarks to mark their place when they take a break to build a sandcastle or surf in the waves.
Pack a few blank bookmark sheets as you set out on the drive to the ocean and have the kids color them in the car or on the train instead of turning on the ol' iPad.
For more old fashioned summer fun you can print out Melanie's other darling oceanside-themed coloring pages:
- Summer reading bookmarks
- Summer reading log
- Ocean coloring page with fish puppets
- Seaside coloring page
- Summer solstice coloring page
