Once you get your kids reading, sometimes the challenge can be to get them to try new things. This Summer Reading Challenge is a great way to help make that happen. Treat it like the reading program at your local library – let your kids keep track of what they read and offer a prize if they complete the list. You can print it as is, or edit it to make it just right.

Make your own summer reading list with The Trip Clip custom checklist maker. This list by book genre will encourage kids to broaden the kinds of books they read this summer.

3. Make It Fun

The most important thing you can do to keep your child reading is make it fun.  This bingo board is a great way to do that.  Encourage them to get a BINGO in any direction, or black out the whole board if they can! You can print it as is, or edit it to make it just right.

This is a super fun way to encourage your kids to read this summer! Challenge your child to get a BINGO in any direction, or even wipe out the whole board! You can also easily edit this board with your own challenges.
