Believe me when I tell you, there are some things you're never "too old" for. I got started late in the Harry Potter game. I didn't actually read the books until I was in college, but I remembered what a big deal they were when I was in the fifth grade. My friends all went to the local book store the night of the release and I totally didn't get what all the fuss was about. (I was a Lord of the Rings freak at the time... I still am. Yep. Nerd glasses are permanently on.) In Honor of National Book Lovers Day, this coming Tuesday, August 9th, I encourage you (and your kids!) to get reading!

Now that I'm a total Potter-head, the release of the latest installment has got me all "Confunded." n x I like it (so far, no spoilers!).

Here's what you'll need:
DIY Book Mark Instructions
Take a long strip of black craft paper and fold it in half. Hot glue the two sides together. Fold it over again and add a magnet on each end. Then cut out a lighting bolt shape out of yellow paper. On the other side, you can add your favorite spell. I put LUMOS on the back of mine.
