How to Make an Origami Bookmark That Will Get Kids Excited to Read
In this fun craft project, we use some of those techniques to make gruesome monster bookmarks that seem to gobble up the corner of your page. Note that our use of glue is unorthodox in origami circles, but makes for sturdier bookmarks and simpler instructions, so we are hoping to be forgiven just this once.

Grab a square piece of paper to get started! Start by placing a square piece of paper in front of you so it looks like a diamond. Next, fold the bottom corner up to meet the top corner, creasing the fold firmly. Then, fold the sides up to the top to make a small diamond. After you crease the folds, unfold them and fold the top layer of the top corner down to meet the bottom edge. Tuck the left and right corners under the folded-down flap to make the final diamond shape. If you want to make your bookmark more unique, decorate it with glitter, gems, or googly eyes and paper ears and teeth.

I love finding fun, simple origami projects for kids. This corner bookmark is simple to make, requiring just five folds, but children may require guidance or assistance — especially the first time they try it out. Be guided by the age and capability of your child to determine how much support he needs. Step 2: Invite your child to fold the diamond in half, taking the bottom corner to the top to form a triangle. Step 3: With the triangle pointing up, he can then take the bottom left point up to meet the center point at the top and crease firmly.
