Military Thank You Bookmarks


  • Card Stock
  • Crayons
  • Clip Art
  • Glue/Mod Podge


  1. Cut out bookmarks from white or colored card stock.
  2. Have your child color and decorate them, including a “Thank You” Message.
  3. Cover the completed book marks with Mod Podge to protect the homemade gifts.

Educational/Other Activities

  • Language Arts: Have your child create thank you cards to go with the bookmarks.
  • Science: Discuss magnets and their properties. Then create a magnetic picture frame to honor a soldier your family knows.
  • Create A Care Package: Include the book mark and other needed items for the soldier. Some frequently requested items are deodorant, snack mixes, ziploc bags, toothpaste, toothbrushes, sunscreen, phone cards, etc.
