Reading is an activity that everyone should take part of since it can help build vocabulary, knowledge, academic skills, and more. Still, it can be challenging to encourage children to develop a reading habit. For that reason, in this post, you'll learn some tips on how to motivate your child to become a bookworm during the winter break.

How to Encourage Your Child to Read Over Winter Break

  1. For starters, you should allow them to choose stories which relate to them. This independence will allow them to read about a subject that interests them. Moreover, you can provide reading material options that relate to the season (e.g. a book about Frosty The Snowman).
  2. Since it's likely that you'll have more free time than usual during the holiday season, you should use it to read with your child. Reading to each other will give you a chance to spend time together, discuss the reading material, and help them build a habit.
  3. Having the right reading environment is key to enjoy a book fully. Now that the colder weather is here, you can use it to create the perfect ambiance: make your child a cup of hot cocoa, turn on the fireplace, and sit them on the couch with fluffy pillows and throws, so they can feel cozy and relaxed while they read.
  4. Once more, having more free time may mean that you'll be able to get your child excited about reading. One thing you can do is take them to the library over winter break. There, they'll find countless books, stories, and knowledge, which may make them want to read more.
  5. Finally, if you celebrate a holiday during this time of year, you can also stimulate your child's reader by giving books as gifts. Your child will probably be eager to get the most out of the presents they received.
