Over a short period of time we arrived at the Collectors' Cafe at the Queensland Museum, mingled, ordered and strolled to a table. After chatting for a while, someone suggested that it was time... and the paints, coloured paper, glue, scissors, pens, crayons and envelopes appeared from bags.
...And we created 'corner bookmarks'.
Just cut off the corner of an envelope and decorate...
...and slip over the page where you stop reading.
I'm the editor of the Newsletters for the Queensland branch of the Children's Book Council of Australia and suggesting in the forthcoming edition that children try this. (Hopefully it will encourage them to read and have the need to mark page places.) As you can see, we all enjoyed producing samples for inspiration.
Then, just like a 'flash mob', we cleared up and vanished back into the crowd.
Special thanks to artists:
...and I did some, too.
I hope these examples inspire you to have a go, too!
