Children are busy people.Their minds are always thinking and their bodies are always moving. It’s great to see busy children, doing what they do best…be children!However, as much as children need active time during the day, they also need a bit of down time...where they can wind their bodies down and take a breather...it's one of the most important parts of their day.The Quiet Time Box was made for this very thing!You will find a variety of simple, quiet ideas and activities that will help keep their heart rate down, keep them in one spot, and give them some time to relax in a calm environment.As with our other Idea Boxes, the activities & ideas in our Quiet Time Box are meant to be child-led…as much as possible. The ideas & activities require little to no prep-work, and use items that you can find around the house. If you don’t have an item, you can easily substitute something in its place.
Here are just a few of the quiet ideas & activities you will find in the box:
