11 DIY Bookends Perfect for Kids Books

Awesome DIY bookends to help you organize your kids books with style!

My son recently discovered the dinosaur books at the library. And after making some tough choices we ended up checking out about 15. And planned another trip for next week.

Organizing kids books has always been a challenge in my house because we love to read, and I can never say no to a good book.  Add in our library haul and I need a new solution to keep those books contained. I like to keep our library books separate or else I will inevitably forget to return one (or five) and end up with a fine. But since I never know exactly how many we'll have at any one time, I thought it would be fun to put them on a shelf with bookends, so the space can be flexible. And since I love DIY projects, I've found some crazy awesome DIY bookends that would be perfect for kids' books!
