Make reading fun with a small Valentine reading challenge for kids!
I come from a family of readers.
People thought my sister and I were joking when we would say my mom lived in a 2 bedroom apartment.
She used one bedroom, while her books used the other.
I’m thankful Lia, Sam and Ana have developed a love for reading too.
A secret in raising avid readers is to fuel that fire for reading with a little creativity.
And nothing works better than a reading challenge.
A Valentine Challenge Your Kids Will Love!
Remember my Fall Challenge to make reading fun for kids?
I sent that along to my daughter’s 1st-grade teacher, and she shared it with the kids’ parents.
It was a fun way to get new, and developing readers to spend time with their books.
When it was time to bring out our Christmas decor and prized collection of Christmas books, I thought it would be neat to expand a little on the Fall Reading Challenge,
and thus the Christmas Challenge Reading Kit was born.
Complete with a Christmas Reading Challenge, 16 Bible Verses to celebrate the season, a Reading Log and Bookmarks, this complete kit is just a sweet way to keep our young readers fired up!
And now, here we are.
A new year and Valentine’s Day is just a few weeks away.
You know what that means, right?
We can’t not have a Valentine-themed kit, right?
A FUN Valentine Reading Kit!
This adorable sloth themed reading challenge kit comes complete with:
1. A Valentine-themed Reading Challenge, listing 16 prompts.
This challenge could serve as a Valentine’s Day countdown of sorts.
Have your child pick a prompt on Jan 30th. By the time he/she marks off the last prompt of choice, it will be February 14th.
2. 16 Bible verses on love.
Again, you can read a verse a day, to lead up to Valentine’s Day.
Or read 2 or 3 each day.
I would not recommend reading all 16 verses on one day as would not serve the purpose of helping your child understand what each verse means.
3. A Reading log
It’s always fun to have a goal to work towards.
You could throw in a prize, perhaps whip up one of these Valentine treats for kids
or even a Valentine-themed book if your child fills up the log before Valentine’s Day.
4. Super cute Sloth Bookmarks
All books need bookmarks, right?
Aren’t these adorable?
