Everyone needs a ticket to ride on the Polar Express. Let kids pretend to be the conductor and punch holes in these tickets to use as bookmarks.
We just used red construction paper but laminated it at the end to make it stronger and more durable. You could also use gold paper if you have it to be more like the movie. Card stock would be best.
I marked the word “BELIEVE” with x’s on the bookmark. Tell kids to try to punch out the x’s. I used a black permanent marker to draw a quick border and some words. Then I laminated the ticket and added one hole punch on one end so I could tie the bell on the side.
I found this 9-pack of bells for $1.00 at the Dollar Tree. I easily tied them to the bookmark.
Make one for every child in your family so they all have a ticket and a bell to hold while reading the book. This would also be a great classroom project for schools during the holidays.
