School is officially back in full swing, and with that comes daily homework sessions. Help your kids stay focused and caught up by setting aside a special place at home for homework. With a cozy spot like the ones below, your kid might even look forward to homework time!
5 Reading Nooks That Are Perfect For Homework
Closet Turned Book Nook
If you have a closet that largely goes unused, why not turn it in to a reading hidey-hole? Get step by step instructions for this DIY transformation at Thrifty Decor Chick. She retained a lot of storage space by installing wall shelves and leaving the bottom of the bench open. Another variation is to turn an entry coat closet into a bench/command center.
Reading Tee Pee
What could make a better reading spot than a tent! Make a child-sized tee pee with this tutorial from My Poppet. Just the way the nomadic Native Americans intended them, your tee pee can be rolled up and moved anywhere in the house – even on the lawn for reading fun!
Hammock Chair for Reading
Create an instant reading oasis by hanging a hammock chair in a quiet corner. Whether it’s in the bedroom or on the porch, this is guaranteed to become your kid’s new favorite spot.
Window Seat Reading Nook
When many of us think of the classic reading spot, a window seat is the first thing that comes to mind. If you’re lucky enough to already have one built in, make it more reader-friendly with built in shelves underneath or bookcases near by. If not, create your own by putting a bench, cushion and a few soft pillows against a bookcase like this.
Cozy Reading Corner
Make any corner special with a soft chair and a magical canopy. Let your little one get lost in another world with branches, banners, or even twinkle lights hanging overhead. A pile of floor cushions and shelves attached to the wall are another way to transform a corner. Low shelves allow everything to be in reach for even the smallest of readers.
Reading Nook Essentials
Every reading nook needs a few things to make it complete. Pillows and a throw to snuggle up with, adequate lighting, shelves or a bookcase, and of course – books!
