Do you have an old pallet lying around? Upcycle it into a bookshelf or book bin. This has got to be the easiest craft ever. I didn’t have one on hand but I asked around and the very next day I received one. Pallets are not hard to find.
To grow a reader, it is imperative that books be very accessible to kids. Reachable reading materials encourage learning and exploring. This happens to be the book bin in our laundry room. I fold laundry while the kids can enjoy a book!
- spray paint
- Cut a pallet in half. Remove top front board on one side of the pallet. This will be the opening for your books.
- Spray paint and let dry.
- Stuff the pallet with books and enjoy!
I don’t recommend hanging this on a wall, as pallets are very heavy. The benefit is this pallet bookshelf is at a kid-friendly level!
