Cosy reading corners for kids

"reading corners for kids"

Now that Anya is learning to read, I am thinking about ways to encourage this.  One of the things I want to do soon is create a cosy little reading corner in her room.  A reading corner will probably encourage most kids to read a bit more if it’s a snug little space and if their books are easily accessible.  It doesn’t have to be very big, in fact I think the smaller and cosier, the better.

There are loads of different ways of doing this but one of my favourites is creating a little hideout with a teepee or a tent. The teepee could even be placed in a corner of another room like the living room.  Another easy idea is a simple mattress or some floor cushions placed in one corner of the room surrounded by bookshelves or even book-filled wooden crates on the floor.  I also like the idea of having a statement lamp to add a bit of fun to the space like that adorable miffy lamp.  There are lots of ways to make a reading corner really special and inviting.  The above are four spaces I really liked and found inspiring so hopefully they will inspire you too.
