School’s out but reading goes on.

A reluctant reader at your house? Chew on this idea!

Have your small person pop a gumball into their mouth and chew, chew, read, read away…….

Another brilliant idea discovered at 30 handmade which was guest posted there by Everyday Chaos, both great blogs that are packed full of ideas.

 

Here are other ways you can help your child develop a love of reading.

Read to them. As children are growing up, try to make reading aloud part of your daily routine. Children will make positive associations with reading and spending time with family.

Keep books in the house. Children who grow up in homes with lots of books read more. If your family has an e-reader, keep it stocked with interesting books. You can even check out ebooks from the public library.

Set aside time daily for your child to read. Prioritizing reading by making time for it, even as children get older you will find this has a huge impact.

Read! Parents who read more have children who read more. Don’t save your reading time for after your child is in bed. Read in front of them, and make going to the library a fun routine for both you and your children.
