Make a bookmark

When children select a new Page Ahead book to keep for their very own, they can take a bookmark. Volunteers would cut out, color and write on the bookmarks (provided by Page Ahead), things like their favorite books as kids, etc. Volunteers would pick up and return completed materials from our Seattle office All drawing/notes/etc. would be done at home. This is a great opportunity for volunteers with children who would like to do something together as a family.  Even young children could help. Instructions and bookmarks provided. Volunteers would only need to provide, crayons, markers and scissors. Six pages of bookmarks take one volunteer one hour to complete.
