Many parents are frantically looking for ways to keep the kids entertained and away from screens. I know the feeling as my son is addicted to his tablet right now especially since it is raining everytime we look out the window!

One of the best ways to do so is by engaging your child in a craft they are interested in. As my 5 year old has just started reading he is interested in books and anything to do with them. He also loves Elf on the Shelf!

Perfect idea for him was my Christmas elves bookmarks craft. He already has completed a few of my other popular elf crafts for kids and I knew he would love to make some little elves that he can slot into his books.

He also likes to use bookmarks as puppets and puts them inside his vehicles and tractors so I knew this activity would keep him engaged for ages while he carries it out and then uses it for pretend play afterwards.
