One Book A Month

Now, I know what you’re thinking: Rachel, I read WAAYY more than one book a month (and so do I, obviously!), but this project is different. Instead of staying in our favorite sections of the library, content to read the same style of story over and over again, what we should be doing is expanding and growing our tastes. And so, this year, I am resolving to read at least one book in a different genre every month. Some I will be excited for, and others…I may dread. But they will be read, and processed, and reviewed and hopefully, I’ll grow or something! (PS the kids are doing this challenge too, they just don’t know it yet….) Don’t forget to comment on this post, OR tag us (here or on social media) when you complete a book! Use #bwmbookamonth to let us know your progress!

Book Craft: Page Magnets

While we enjoy relaxing days and cuddly mornings, my family is more of a get up and do something type of crowd. This craft is perfect for those “move a lot” days because it’s quick, easy, and useful! Feel free to be creative if you don’t want to destroy a book for the sake of art! Use a yard sale or dollar store find, print some images off the computer, or do what I did and get weird! After Valentine’s Day, I bought a few boxes of valentines in all different themes, just in case we wanted to use the stickers, or cards for craft time. That sure came in handy today! Instead of destroying our only copy of Cat in the Hat, I used one of the Valentine’s Day cards, and a couple of the stickers to achieve the same effect!
