Book Club

Get a little summer reading in by having your child start a book club. Brainstorm a list of books she wants to read, recruit a few of her friends, and set a few dates to get together to talk about the books they have read.

Make each gathering special by setting a theme and dressing for the occasion. A few special snacks, some fun outfits, and a festive atmosphere will make this one of the highlights of your child's summer!
