Custom Reading Lights

I have been having so much fun decorating our playroom and although it’s not quite ready for the big reveal ( being 5’4 with a baby perpetually in my arms is limiting sometimes). One thing I could do was to turn these dollar store push lights into a fun light up sign for our book nook.  For the last week we’ve been snuggling in the nook before quiet/ nap time and reading book after book. It’s the coziest place and totally worth loosing a closet and it’s storage space.

  1. Gather your materials. You’ll need one push light per letter and a permanent marker ( I used a broad-line Sharpie) .
  2. Write out your letters or draw something fun. I stuck to one letter per light with such a short word , but you could do anything you want.
  3. Add batteries and hang up.
  4. Push on and read.

Do not forget to participate in our 2nd Annual Summer Reading Challenge , it’s not too late!
