Getting your child interested in literature early in life is really important. Here are two great craft ideas to get your children interested in reading for years to come.
Fill-in-the-Blank Story-telling Book
It can be hard to teach children that reading can be fun! Kids only avoid reading if they don’t realize that they can transport themselves through the pages to another world! If children are reluctant to burrow into books at every opportunity, try making this super fun story-telling book. This fun book will not only help expand their minds, get their creative juices flowing, but it will help with their writing as well.
If your child isn’t old enough to completely write the story on his or her own, you can write your own story out and have your child fill in the blanks with nouns and adjectives to make the story uniquely their own!

Another super fun and creative way to get your child involved in literature arts is to create poetry frame art. Children can choose their favorite poem and make a decorative frame. This paper crafts for kids makes nice teacher appreciation gifts and grandparent gifts, as well as a fantastic educational tool.
