Fairytale Picnic March 2024 Readathon

Fairytale Picnic March 2024 Readathon


It's time for our next readathon! I feel like the last one was literally yesterday but I guess that's what happens after the holiday season.

This theme is a fairytale picnic theme and the story is that we've gone on a walk in the woods and found a clearing with some distinctly...magical things in it. Let's get exploring!

This theme will be released on February 23rd at 12pmCST and the readathon itself will take place March 18th-24th (we had to squeeze it between some holiday weeks!)

This blog post is going to go over all the info you need plus answer some frequently asked questions that I get about our readathons!


  • Estimated last day to order items: March 4th (Due to possible delays, this is not an exact date)
  • Readathon Dates: Monday, March 18th - Sunday, March 24th
  • Location: Creating & Co Book Club (or you can follow along on Instagram and do it on your own) 
  • # of Prompts: 5 challenge prompts
  • Giveaway Info: There will be at least 2 chances to win shop credit in the Facebook group throughout the week
  • Group Read: TBA, will vote in the book club group 
  • Bundle Info: The bundle for this theme will include the vertical kit, the readathon kit, and the extra sheet of reading stickers for $27.95!

Our readathons have five prompts. For each book you read that fits a prompt, simply fill in the title and rating and then using one of the floral books to cover a grayed out book on the page. You can read one book per prompt or find books that fit multiple prompts

Here are the prompts:

  • Magical Elements: A book that contains some form of magical element, whether that's a full on magical world or just something that seems a bit more magical than normal life
  • Fairytale Vibes: It doesn't have to be a full on fairytale retelling, but something with the same vibes, whatever that means to you
  • Read Outside: Let's get outside now that the weather is warmer! You don't have to read the ENTIRE book outside (especially if it's a long one), but try to get outside at least once while you're reading it!
  • Someone Chose: This can be a rec someone gave you or a gift or even just asking a friend what book you should read next. This can also be chosen from one of the threads in the Facebook group. 
  • Group Read/Free Space: We will vote for a group read in the Creating & Co Book Club to discuss during the event in the group from 3/18-3/25

If you have another way to interpreting the prompts, you can change it up! I won't police your book picks so feel free to make them work for you! You can also ask for recommendations or suggestions in the facebook group and we'll have posts that allow for book recs too.

For the week, you can deck out your planner in the weekly kit. We'll be releasing it in our vertical version, the deco version, and the mini kit version! We'll also have a couple of add ons filled with extra reading stickers so you can really tackle your reading goals! 

Each of our 2024 reading challenges and events will have a badge sticker that you can use with our Reading Challenge Tracker to keep track of all the events you participate in this year! (PS: You can check out the Spring Countryside stuff too!)

It's so much fun to see the sheets fill up as the year goes on and helps you feel accomplished as you complete each one!

I also wanted to show you what the sidebar stickers from the readathon set could look like in your weekly sidebar if you decide to put them there! This is just an example so you could easily change it up a bit.

We'll also be releasing some vinyl stickers but I don't have pics of them at this time so keep an eye out on social media! 


  • Do you have to buy stickers to participate in the readathon? No, our events are all free to participate in but having the stickers make them a lot more fun!
  • Do you have to read 5 books in one week? Absolutely not! You can read 1 book that covers all 5 prompts if you want or you can read 1 book for each prompt or any other number of books and have them cover as many prompts as you like. 
  • Do you have to read a certain genre? Not at all! I like to try to pick books that fit the theme but sometimes I'm just not in the mood for that genre or vibe so I'll pick another type of book that I am in the mood for and let the kit theme be just for fun. 

In case you missed it, we're also going to be celebrating our shop's birthday this weekend and to do so, we'll be having a special kit release and a sale! The kit that we will be releasing is a Magical Library theme and I took the chance to make some fantasy challenges that you don't want to miss if you love fantasy as much as I do!

I mentioned we didn't have the fairytale picnic vinyl stickers yet because they're still waiting to be delivered BUT I do have the magical library stickers so I wanted to show you some of them for this blog post!

Stay tuned for details about the sale on social media! A little bird told me that a spin to win sale might be fun to do!
