Reading On A Blanket Outside

1:38 AM

I don't know about most of you, but our summers are short her in Utah. I like to take advantage of the sunny weather while I can. This is a great family activity for so many reasons. First it promotes reading in young children but also its a great bonding experience, plus if your kids are outdoors that mean they are not indoors... breaking things.

  • Each family member should pick out a book they would like to share with the family
  • Have your kids spread out a blanket in the backyard
  • Bring Snacks
  • And take turns reading the first page of each book.

This is also a great idea for older play dates, family home evening, or little get-together's for your kids and their friends.

  1. I LOVE this idea! Reading is always a great way to spend time with your kids. Although it's still too hot in AZ to do it outdoors. We can always put blankets and pillows on the floor to make it more fun and cozy indoors :)
