Set Up A Family Reading Time With These Printable Bookmarks To Color
I love it when I can use printables to help encourage quality family time! These colorable bookmarks for kids are no exception. 🙂
Pick one night during the week, or a weekend day, and get prepared with this list:
- A book for everyone
- Crayons, colored pencils or markers
- A small bin or bucket
- Lots of blankets and pillows
BEFORE you start, have everybody place their phones or tablets in the bucket so there are no distractions. 😉 And place it in a corner out of sight and reach!
Let everyone pick their own book and bring them to the family room. Bring out these fun printables and let everyone (parents TOO!) color their own bookmark to use! Spend about 30 minutes reading while cozied up on the couch or floor together, and then take about 30 minutes to talk as a family about what each of you read!
You can make this a weekly routine and your whole family will look forward to this awesome time together. 🙂
These awesome free bookmarks to color are sure to be a hit with your kiddos and get them excited about reading!
