See how many branches and leaves your family can "grow" with a family reading tree.

What You'll Need:

Brown and green construction paper

Scissors

Masking tape

Large envelope

Felt-tip marker

Cellophane tape

How to Make a Family Reading Tree:

Step 1: Cut a tree trunk and tree branches out of the brown construction paper, and tape them to the wall in your book nook. Make the tree rather large, about three feet tall. This will be your reading tree.

Step 2: Cut out lots of leaves from the green construction paper. Place the leaves in a large envelope, along with a felt-tip marker and the cellophane tape.

Step 3: Each time a member of the family finishes a book, he or she takes out a leaf and writes the title of the book on it. Then he or she can tape the leaf to the tree.
