My oldest daughter started Kindergarten earlier this month, so we have now entered the world of “reading daily” as part of homework. I wanted to make it a little more fun for my kids, so I came up with this Reading Treat Box.
Let’s take a look at the other side.
Confused? Stay with me.
Reading is a treat, so what better way to make it that way than with actual treats? These books open up.
Each day she reads she gets a little treat. I painted the inside cover of the top book with chalkboard paint, and my daughter can make hash marks for each day she reads. Once she reaches 7 (one week), she can have a bigger treat. Once she reaches 4 weeks, she can have the biggest treat from the one month book.
I found these neat cardboard books that open up at Hobby Lobby.
After some spraypaint, I glued them all together using my glue gun. The apple and worm chipboard pieces also came from Hobby Lobby and were stuck on with hot glue as well.
Next I cut out all the black wording in vinyl with my Silhouette, and last filled the 3 books with some of my daughter’s favorite treats.
So far it’s working really well. My daughter is excited to read daily, and doesn’t ever miss a day because she’s anxious to get her goodies.
Happy Reading! It’s a TREAT!
