15 great original ideas for a dream reading space to encourage children to read more!

Tips and Crafts

The majority of children see reading as a a chore. And it is quite normal ... Except, if reading time is fun and less boring! By creating an enchanting space for example, where they will like to spend time, they will like to read. Children likes to play and don't want to be bored or annoyed with things they don't like. Do things differently!

"Children, would you like to have a nice reading space in your room? We would do it together. And this area will be forbidden to adults! You can read quietly, alone, or together if you like. But without a parent. Do you like it?"

No child would refuse such an offer! And you will see that reading times will be much easier during the week.

"Julianne, why would not you go and relax in your reading area after your bath before going to sleep? I'm coming in 20 minutes!"

Try it! You will love it!
