INDIANAPOLIS — March is National Reading Month, and Carly Dorogi has fun craft ideas to get your kids excited about books.
Dorogi, a Parenting contributor and former reading specialist, shows us how to make DIY library bags and personalized bookmarks with a handy contraption called the Cricut Explore 3.
To start developing your kids’ love for reading, Dorogi suggests taking them to the library regularly, starting at a very young age.
“I think the library is a magical place. From the time your kids are teeny tiny, I encourage parents to take them to library and make it their go-to destination that they want to go to,” she said.
The DIY tote bag is not only fun for kids, Dorogi said, but it’s a win for parents because it gives kids a place to keep their library books together so they don’t get lost.
