Hooray its May! After a cold, snowy Winter and wet, rainy April…. we have sunshine on the first day of May! Add to that the fact that its Teach Me Tuesday and you have a near perfect day!
This week’s Teach Me Tuesday is for our readers and writers, young and old with a DIY tutorial to make ribbon bookmarks plus a writing prompt for the month of May. If you know someone (including yourself) that loses bookmarks every time they read then this is the perfect bookmark to make!
The bookmark is very cute and customizable with the type of ribbon and buttons you want to use. You can use recycled ribbon from gift boxes or other places you find ribbon. If you are like me, you find buttons everywhere but don’t know where they came from so you can use those buttons for this project. The great thing about these bookmarks is that they created so they do not slip out the books and get lost. For the May Writing Prompt, keep scrolling past the bookmark tutorial!
Hair Tie (preferably new but you can recycle your unused ones too)
Hot Glue Gun and glue stick
- Cut ribbon to 12″ long or as long you want/need
- Place hair tie over one side of the ribbon, fold the ribbon over the tie and glue down
- Glue the button on the other side of the ribbon
- Allow the glue to dry
- Read and bookmark your place!
May Writing Prompt:
As a homeschooling mom, I love having Danyella write something everyday. The writing prompts are a great way to get the creative juices flowing and sometimes make her think outside of the box. In the past, we have used prompts that I have found on Pinterest. While we loved them, there was something usually missing from them. Danyella prefers to have the prompts in a calendar form which has been a great way to teach her about calendars and planning.
This May writing prompt is formatted for 2018 but can be used at any point, in any year. I hope you enjoy getting your child’s creative juices flowing and encouraging them to use their words to write something beautiful everyday of May!

This is the cutest thing ever! I’ve been using random cards as bookmarks, I need to make this!
I love the writing prompts… I read the whole calendar and answered each one in my head! The bookmark looks fast to make too, which is the only type of crafting I seem capable of these days with a baby.
These writing prompts are so fun! Thanks for sharing!
I love these bookmarks! So cute and easy. My girls are still reading board books and I don’t exactly have time to read, but I’ll definitely save this idea for later!
Oh that prompt is really cute! Love that idea!
