reading is super important. so give it a super important place in your home!
show your whole family how important it is to want to read for fun (and not just for learning) by creating a dedicated place for reading… a reading place!
Start with the 3Bs!
– Book Storage
then add pillows, blankets, and your family’s imagination, to create something truly spectacular!
chances are pretty good there’s an empty corner SOMEWHERE in the house that, with a little creativity, could easily be changed into #myreadingplace
this one’s best for little readers, and only after a LOT of weight testing, just to be sure… but once the bedsheet is tried, tested, and secure, there’s no end to the fun I can have in #myreadingplace
mosquito netting, canvas, or khaki-coloured draping, filled with lots of stuffies and tools like magnifying glasses, flashlights, and cameras, take #myreadingplace on safari!
for the courageous, daring, and brave, spending a little time in a cupboard under the stairs can make #myreadingplace truly magical!
I don’t need much to make a special place for reading … turning over a simple box and digging up the lights from last winter will get me started. It’s not a box… it’s #myreadingplace
building it is only half the fun… when #myreadingplace is a sixty-second fort! Gather all your supplies then put 60 seconds on the clock — you’ve got just that long to build a fort before it’s time to read a chapter! Don’t love the way this one turned out? Tear it all down and try again before reading the next one!
some places just aren’t made for grownups, and having #myreadingplace all to myself, to snuggle into safe and sound, seems like the perfect way to keep reading special!
since taking a tent to the wilderness just isn’t in the books right now, why not take the books to the tent and enjoy some wild stories in #myreadingplace instead?
knits, crochets, and patchwork quilts can be woven together to make #myreadingplace truly amazing!
