Creating a love of reading is something that is really important to me as a mom. With my daughter, I wanted to make sure she developed a love of reading like I have. She loves books, she can’t read yet but she loves to be read to and loves to look at picture books. So I wanted to create a little reading nook all for her. The first decision I had to make was where I was going to do this. Since we spend most of our time downstairs, her room wasn’t ideal at this point. Once I decided on the family room, I stumbled upon this Black and White Striped Teepee and knew it was perfect for her.
I loved the boldness of the black and white stripes and knew it would look perfect in our family room (which is currently getting a makeover) When it’s complete, this will be stunning in the room.
CREATE A PLACE ALL THEIR OWN
Teepees seem to be all the rage everywhere but being that I’m part Native American, I loved it for teaching her about her heritage and our family history.
I picked up a new pillow and ultra soft cover to place inside for a comfy place to sit.
KEEP IT ORGANIZED
I wanted to keep her books nearby but neat. So this black metal container was strong enough to hold her books and portable enough that I could easily move it around if I needed to.
KEEP THE DECOR SIMPLE
I don’t want to fill it with clutter so I put a striped toy bin next to it for her to bring her toys in and out of. It’s inevitable that she is going to do more than reading in there but I didn’t want her to fill it with toys and have it be a mess. The toy bin keeps the clutter out but lets her have fun at the same time.
She loves her teepee reading nook. When we can’t find her, it’s usually because she’s snuck away with her favorite picture book or her favorite toys.
This Black and White Striped Teepee from Best Choice Products is 6 feet tall and even comes with a carry case if you want to move it around or even take it outside. It makes transporting it simple
Creating a comfy reading nook with this teepee was super easy and seeing how much she loves her little space was a great decision. To learn more about this teepee visit: Black and White Striped Teepee from Best Choice Products
