Tear art always seems to be a much-loved method of creating for kids. It gives projects a unique look, and is so much fun to do. We used newspaper for this tear art bookmark that’s shaped just like a tie for Father’s Day. (This post contains affiliate links.)

Directions for Making Tear Art Bookmark Craft for Kids

1. Print out the free tie template. You can print it out directly onto cardstock from your printer or use the tie shape as a tracer on your poster board.

2. Cut out a tie shape from your cardstock.

3. Tear up bits of newspaper. (It’s fun to grab bits from different sections of the paper like the comics, crossword puzzles, sports page etc. so you get a variety of interesting graphics and texts.)

4. Use your paintbrush to paint liquid glue onto your cardstock tie. Place a piece of torn newspaper onto the glue. Continue doing this until your entire tie bookmark is covered with newspaper. (Don’t worry about the edges hanging over.)

5. Paint a final layer of glue over the entire bookmark.

8. You can leave your finished bookmark just as it is or add some details. We added a heart sticker to ours and created a black outline on the edges of the bookmark using a Sharpie.
