Read Across America Dr. Seuss Bookmark Craft

Read Across America

You’ve bought the books, picked a quiet place and now you’re ready to celebrate Read Across America Day (the March 2 holiday also coincides with Dr. Seuss’s birthday)! Your little reader is part way through her favorite book, and it’s time to stop and go to school, eat lunch, take a trip to the park or just switch activities. Now what? She could fold own the edge of the page. But, that may ruin the paper. Instead, create a Read Across America inspired bookmark, featuring the famous Dr. Seuss favorite ‘The Cat in the Hat’.

Materials:

  • Red and white craft felt
  • Cardboard (reuse the front of a cereal or cracker box)
  • Scissors
  • Googley eyes
  • Clear-drying school glue

Instructions:

  1. Cut the cardboard into a bookmark-sized rectangle.
  2. Using the cardboard as a template, cut the red felt into a rectangle.
  3. Repeat the template measuring and cutting step with the white felt. Cut the white felt into ‘stripes’.
  4. Glue the red felt onto the cardboard. Add the white felt as stripes (with the glue).
  5. Cut a piece of white felt that is slightly longer than stripes to make the hat’s brim. Glue this to the bottom of the book mark.
  6. Add the cat’s eyes. Glue two googley eyes to the brim.

Turn the hat upside down (so that the eyes are at the top) to use the bookmark!
