Today while I was cleaning my house I started folding up this random table cloth I bought but never use. It’s been sitting in a ball on the futon for a month or so.
Right before I shoved it into our linen cupboard I thought, why not make a tent out of it for the kids?
And then as I walked into the schoolroom I thought, why not pin it to the wall for a simple little reading nook?
I was surprised by the level of excitement the kids had for it! They spent quite a while today reading over there while I sat watching and smiling.
Some old pillows, a plain table cloth, scrapbook paper and a crate of books made for one special afternoon together 🙂
