Easy DIY Halloween Bookmarks: Cute Craft for Kids

Make easy DIY Halloween bookmarks out of paper with free templates for a vampire bookmark, a witch bookmark, a Frankenstein bookmark, and a mummy bookmark!

We are gearing up for the Halloween season over here, how about you? So I have an all new fun Halloween craft for you today! 

I have given you quite a few DIY bookmark tutorials in the past (like these felt bookmarks), and today we are going to be making Halloween paper bookmarks. You probably already have all the craft supplies needed to complete these easy Halloween crafts!

Younger kids will have so much fun helping you make these bookmarks and then using them to keep their place in their favorite books.

Cute crafts are such a great way to get your kids or students excited about reading!

And you don’t even need to use them as bookmarks. Grab a craft stick or popsicle sticks and a glue gun and turn them into Halloween puppets!

These Halloween bookmarks would also make the perfect activity along with our Halloween scavenger hunt at a class party or home party! Or give these cute paper crafts as Halloween party favors!
