It’s no secret that we love reading in our house. So often though we are always searching for something to mark our place. So the other day my daughter and I decided to create these fun DIY bunny bookmarks to mark our place in our books.

My kids freaked out about our DIY Mermaid Tail Bookmarks we made, so I knew these adorable bunny bookmarks would be a hit!

Now when we are done reading we can use these fun bunny bookmarks to mark our spot! 

This is the perfect spring craft project for older kids. 

If you love spring crafts you will love these!
