No matter what book you're reading to your little ones, themed bookmarks are always an adorable way to keep them more interested and help them develop their reading skills. That's why I love our planet-themed bookmarks, especially because these are made with very simple materials including popsicle sticks which are always a handy supply in the crafts-for-kids world!

You can use these planets as bookmarks or stick puppets too! Check out this Planet Earth Craft or this Paper Plate Space Craft for another planet and STEAM inspired activity!
