Beads, Buttons and Bookmarks


  1. To encourage good reading habits and book marking, students are encouraged to think of a creative way to make a bookmark.
  2. Give them a box of goodies to choose from, tinsel, al-foil, coloured plastics, strings, wool, ribbons, card, paints, textas, pencils, glitter, beads, buttons and more.
  3. The idea is to see how efficient students are at choosing the correct materials for their project. Some may choose beads to glue on their bookmark and will soon find out why it is inappropriate. It will be a very thought provoking art lesson for some students.
