Signs of Spring - Origami Bookmark

Encourage your kids to take a break from the screens and get into a good book. Making one of these adorable springtime origami bookmarks will get theme excited about picking up their next book!

You can use paper that you have around the house, and cut it into squares. Then use scraps of paper, markers, and crayons to decorate these bookmarks as springtime critters. I've decorated a frog, a chick, and a bunny rabbit.
