As my girls have gotten bigger, I wanted to create a spot in their room dedicated to reading, hence our newest addition, the “Book Nook”. I’ve had a little time since we have gotten out of school for winter break to finally put everything together.
We added a nice rug and benches that their Papa made them out of old milk crates. I love when we are able to repurpose items!
I added some letters “READ” to an old shutter that I had purchased years ago and picked up a rope hanging basket that all their stuffed animals can fit into. Since I wanted to area to feel slightly enclosed like a tent, I added a sheet, some lights and little pom-poms overhead. And finally, a reading rack to keep the most loved or seasonal books. Right now it is stocked with Christmas and winter books.
This has been such a great addition to the room and the girls love going to their “book nook” and reading and doing “book projects”. We have continued to exchange book projects with some friends and family. The girls currently have a couple book buddies and ask all the time when we can do another book project. I have to admit this has really been a lot of fun because I love to create different activities to go with the books. Here are a few of the “projects” we have received or sent over the past couple months.
If you have a 2-4 year old and want to join in the fun for the new year, just let me know!
