These print better when printed on cardstock (this is the one we like.)

They will print on letterhead paper, if you are using A4 just click on the shrink to fit button.

Three bookmarks will print on each page, and I highly recommend using a paper cutter rather than scissors (unless you have a very steady hand!)

Creative uses for Thanksgiving coloring bookmarks

Extend the creative potential of these delightful bookmarks beyond just coloring! Here are some innovative ways to utilize them:

  1. Transform these charming bookmarks into personalized gift tags! Once colored, punch a hole at the top and attach them to presents with ribbons or strings. Add a heartfelt message on the back to give an extra special touch to your gifts.
  2. Elevate your Thanksgiving table decor by repurposing these bookmarks as unique placeholders. Write guests’ names elegantly on the blank side and place them atop napkins or in holders for a thoughtful and festive table setting.
  3. Encourage kids to think beyond the bookmark’s original purpose by incorporating them into larger Thanksgiving-themed art projects. They could create a collage using these bookmarks along with other craft materials to depict a scene of gratitude, harvest, or a family celebration.
  4. String together the colored bookmarks to create a gratitude garland or banner. Hang it in the house as a decorative reminder of thankfulness during the Thanksgiving season. Consider adding other decorative elements like fall leaves or miniature pumpkins for an added festive touch.
  5. Encourage kids to write down what they’re thankful for on the back of the bookmarks after coloring. Over the years, these bookmarks can serve as cherished keepsakes, capturing their thoughts and memories from various Thanksgivings.
