Netflix & SPC: March Break Film Fest Fun and Bookmark Craft

Netflix & SPC: March Break Film Fest Fun and Bookmark Craft

I love crafts. No, seri­ously, I love doing crafts. I’d rather cut and paste for a full day then spend three min­utes eat­ing in my daughter’s pre­tend restau­rant. Sadly, for Scar­lett, pre­tend play is like hav­ing a cav­ity filled for me. How­ever, if you want me to hand cut, cheery-coloured felt to sew into hol­i­day stock­ings, I’m your girl. In fact, if you have ever sent a kid to my home for a play-date you know I usu­ally have a fun project planned. So it’s no sur­prise that I jumped at the chance to be the “crafty girl” when Net­flix approached us about team­ing up each month. We will be work­ing with them to help deliver a great list of themed movies and tele­vi­sion shows, as well as recipes and crafts you can cre­ate together as a family.

For our first instal­la­tion, we’re throw­ing a March Break Film Fes­ti­val using Netflix’s lineup. Scar­lett and I chose flicks inspired by some of our favourite books includ­ing The Magic School Bus and Gulliver’s Trav­els, as well as Judy Moody and the Not Bum­mer Sum­mer. We also liked the idea of this beaded book­mark (and jew­elry) craft since our bed­time tales inspired our fes­ti­val. Bead­ing is such a low-mess craft and I love that it yields use­ful and, frankly, adorable acces­sories rather than over-glued, paper thinga­ma­jigs that I always have to save way past their “Best Before” date.

Mate­ri­als You’ll Need:
Portable plas­tic con­tainer with tight-fitting cap
Plas­tic or wooden beads of var­i­ous shapes and sizes
Scis­sors
Col­ored twine or cord

March Craft elements

How to do it:

Mea­sure twine or cord to deter­mine length of book­mark, neck­lace or bracelet. Cre­ate a tight knot larger than the open­ing of the beads so they don’t slip through. Begin beading.

Fin­ish your cre­ation with another tight knot.
