Ok amazing online community of parents, I need some brainstorming action.
Avery recently started doing longer days at daycare, and our provider wants her to have quiet time while the other kids nap. Unfortunately, all she offers for quiet time is TV. I don’t want my kid to be babysat by a TV for 2 hours at daycare every day, so I’m trying to suggest good quiet time options for her to try. Luckily Avery is a generally quiet kid and tends to respect the notion of being quiet while others sleep, but I want to come up with activity ideas both to sell the idea of no TV to our daycare provider, and to give Avery something to get excited about for when her friends take a nap without her.
What are your favourite quiet time activities for your kids?
