Use artistic skills to make a bookmark. Ideal for a Mother's Day or Father's Day gift.
Card, hole punch, ribbon, paper, pencils/felt tips.
Give each child a piece of paper roughly A5 size. They put their pencil anywhere on the paper and "take it for a walk", drawing their own swirly pattern. They then colour in the spaces of the swirls to create a unique piece of artwork. Cut coloured card into bookmark-sized pieces and cut the drawing down to size slightly smaller than the bookmark. Stick the drawing onto the bookmark, punch a hole at the bottom and thread a piece of ribbon through. If the bookmarks are to be used for Mothers Day or Fathers Day, the children can write a message on the back.
