Lolly Stick Monster Bookmarks ~Bostik Challenge

It's really important to develop kids imagination and the perfect way to do it is by crafting. Each month I receive the Bostik Crafting Box and my (niece) little crafting buddy Little M and I enjoy making crafts to the monthly themed box. This months box was all about monsters and last week we made a lovely Monster Wall hanging, we still had a few items left over in the box so we made these cute Lolly Stick Monster Book Marks.

Now we all know that kids are often scared of monsters (so are some adults actually) so our monsters we create are the cute and adorable type. Also little M insisted that her monsters were going to be girls and they would wear skirts. Who was I to conflict with a child's imagination, so you can see from the video on how to make the Lolly Stick Monster book marks  and also see that they are wearing skirts!!!! She has also named them, the one in the yellow skirt is Molly and the one with the blue skirt is Milly. Little M has a really good imagination and loves role play.

To make the Lolly Stick Monsters Bookmarks you will need:

  • 2 Lolly Sticks
  • 2 Feet and hand shape foam cut outs
  • 2 pairs of Stick on eyes
  • 2 Cup cake wrappers
  • Bostik Glue
  • Bostik Glue Dots

Please watch the video below to see how we made these cute Lolly Stick Monsters Bookmarks:

This craft is suitable for young children although, adult supervision may be required for using scissors  and using sharp pencil.
