Slow Down and Boost Reading with These Sloth Bookmarks

Do you have kids who love all things sloths? Or perhaps you just got done enjoying a movie or book with sloth themes? Maybe you'd like to have some simple and frugal ways to boost your reading time, party, or rainy day fun?

Well, you're going to love these sweet sloth bookmarks to color!

I recently shared some of our new free printable coloring bookmarks with interest-led themes (like Pokemon, Super Mario, and Minecraft). My younger boys get a big kick out of sloths so I knew that I needed to have some bookmarks with sloths to add to our reading fun collection.

I just love how these printable bookmarks turned out, don't you? I truly hope that you and your kids enjoy these reading tools as much as we do 😊

Smart Ideas for Making and Sharing These Printable Bookmarks

Do these black-and-white bookmarks with sloth themes look kind of blah? Well, take it from me - you can really take the fun to the next level with these frugal activities!

Your students can create these bookmarks for their reading pleasure, as well as to share with friends and loved ones. These printable bookmarks are awesome for:

  • Your sloth party
  • Celebrating International Sloth Day (October 19)
  • Easy activity for rainy day fun (or when the weather isn't agreeable)
  • DIY coloring bookmarks to share at your library or community event
  • Brain breaks
  • Early finishers in your classroom
  • Cute accessory or gift tag for a sloth-themed gift

I think it's a great idea to print these bookmarks on white cardstock for extra durability. Laminate the bookmarks (after your child is done coloring and customizing) to better preserve their hard work.

When I make my bookmarks, I use glitter gel pens. Such shiny, shimmery effects! My boys like to use other coloring tools, like color pencils and fine-tip markers. Crayons can work when they have a nice tip.

Another way to reinforce the bookmarks is to use washi tape on the backs. This step bolsters the bookmark, as well as adds a cool pattern or texture (like glitter washi tape).

Oh, and you can use a hole punch in the top of the bookmark and add a ribbon or piece of colored twine or yarn.
