5. Have a Reading Marathon!
Reading is always a groovy way to pass the time. First set up a comfy place for everyone to sit. Pete loves making forts with sheets and filling them with pillows!

One way to have a reading marathon is to have everyone in the family pick a few of their favorite picture books and take turns reading them aloud. Don't be afraid to be interactive! Shadow puppets, sound effects, and sing-alongs are all welcome!

Another great way to read together is to pick a chapter book that everyone is interested in and take turns reading paragraphs or pages. You'll be surprised how far along you can get in a story using teamwork!

Here are a few Pete the Cat collections that are awesome for reading marathons!
