Parents are always asking me how they can make reading fun. I put a list together of FIVE fun and creative things you can do to encourage reading, I hope you enjoy!
1. Read with a Flash Light
Reading with a flash light is gimmicky but fun! Shine-a-Light books are PERFECT. They are engaging and the perfect books to read with a flashlight. Designed specifically to be read with a light to help see hidden images on each page, there are books for children of all interests and age levels!
2. Arrange a Book Tasting!
Not sure which books will peak their interest? Host a Book Tasting! Set up books from several different genres and let them choose one to read. You can do this yourself, OR schedule a Book Tasting event! Learn more HERE!!
3. Make a Special Place for Reading
When you have a fun place just for reading, it becomes an experience. Here is an EASY and NO SEW Reading Chair!
4. Closed Captioning
Do your kids watch television? Mine sure do! One way to reinforce reading, even while watching television is to turn on the Closed Captioning feature. It works! For added fun, watch cartoons in a foreign language.
5. Reading Scavenger Hunt
Here is a fun printable from Modern Parents Messy Kids with 25 different types of books for your child to read. Once they have completed the Scavenger Hunt, they get a reward!
