As winter weather sets in, you’ll need to find more ways to keep the kids amused indoors. This whimsical reading nook is just the thing to add a little magic to reading and playtime – and you can get everything you need with your RCS Card.

 

MAKE IT SOFT AND COMFY

Use a rug to soften the floor and add snuggly blankies to enhance the ‘nest’. A soft ottoman can make a good ‘backbone’ inside the tent, and then it’s time to squeeze in as many soft, fun pillows as you can find!

ADD THE TENT AND TWINKLE

Many kids’ décor boutiques sell very cute tents that are ready for you to assemble, but if you’re on a budget, a mosquito net can do the job beautifully. Lace it with twinkle lights for an extra special touch of magic!
