Kids Frugal Fun-Armed Forces Day: Thank You Bookmarks

Each week I bring you a kids craft that is fun, educational, and frugal.  May 19th is Armed Forces Day and since we should all be appreciative of our military, I thought it would be nice to do a craft based on this holiday!

Military Thank You Bookmarks

I was told that soldiers overseas read a lot so I thought it would be nice to make some bookmarks that could help them keep their place while reading!

Card Stock
Clip Art
Glue/Mod Podge

1.  Cut out bookmarks from white or colored card stock.
2.  Have your child color and decorate them, including a “Thank You” Message.

3.  Cover the completed book marks with Mod Podge to protect the homemade gifts.

Educational/Other Activities

  • Language Arts:  Have your child create thank you cards to go with the bookmarks. 
  • Science:  Discuss magnets and their properties.  Then create a magnetic picture frame to honor a soldier your family knows.
  • Create A Care Package:  Include the book mark and other needed items for the soldier.  Some frequently requested items are deodorant, snack mixes, ziploc bags, toothpaste, toothbrushes, sunscreen, phone cards, etc.
