Tips and Tricks:

  • Keep your children’s love of reading by not just making bookmarks for Halloween but all throughout the year.
  • Make Frankenstein different colors other than green and black and keep the creativity growing.
  • Use googly eyes instead and watch them roll around as your child moves the bookmark through the pages.

More Bookmark or Frankenstein/Halloween ideas:

  • The book Frankenstein Doesn’t Plant Petunia is a fun story for kids that shows the playful side of this Halloween character and would be a great way to use the new bookmark they have made.
  • Make these delicious Marshmallow Frankenstein Treats and eat them together as you read and bring the Frankenstein bookmark along as you glide through the pages.

How Do I Print A PDF?

You’ll need a program that supports PDFs. Adobe Acrobat is a great option. Open the program, click file then print. Select your printer and the number of copies you want to print. Be sure you click double-sided if you want it to print on both sides. 

Can I Resell These?

You may not resell any printable or template that you find on our website or received in your email. You may use them for class parties, at church, at home, or in the classroom. You may get these printed at an office supply store or copy center at your own expense.
