10 Activities for Quiet Time

These great posts all came from last weeks Tuesday Tots linkup
where we featured Activities using Balls


I'm not a believer that children need to work in silence in order to learn, in fact, generally speaking, quite the opposite. However we all need and relish some quiet time. Whether it's to change the direction of play or attitudes, to help calm down, to let a little sibling sleep, to have a rest, to relax or to really concentrate, a bit of time being quietly engaged can sometimes do a world of good. Here are a selection of activities suitable for some independent quiet time.

1.  Citrus Sensory Tray from Fun-a-Day on B.Inspired Mama

2.  Number Writing Salt Game from Learn with Play at Home

3. Monsters Inc Pompom Craft  from Red Ted Art

4. Lovely Shell Activities from Fantastic Fun and Learning

5. Scissor Exercises from Happy Hooligans

6. Simple Ocean Sensory Bin from fun-a-day

7. Button Blanket Sensory Bin from Rubber Boots and Elf Shoes

8. Paper Flower Lei Craft from Gummy Lump

9. Sticky Easel with Craft Supplies from Learn with Play at Home

10. Bottle Top Spelling Game (including free printables) from The Measured Mum

  1. Thank you so much for including our simple ocean sensory play, as well as the guest post at B-Inspired Mama. In both cases, the children really enjoyed themselves (and so did I)! :)

    1. More than welcome Mary Catherine. Thanks for sharing, it looked like a lot of fun! :)

    1. You're welcome Shaunna. You made me realise I need a better shell collection, haha. :)

  3. Ooh thank you so much for the feature! uch appreciated!


  4. Amazing activity! It is difficult to keep the kids busy and tied up during their vacations. Most of the parents plan to go on some family vacation tours while some others plan to arrange a theme party or some other fun-loving activities for their kids. I have also planned to arrange a surprise party for my kids and for this I took suggestions on kids party games by partykidz.ie. Though, I have decided to perform some games, but I found the above activity quite interesting so I am definitely going to perform it as well. I think my kids will definitely going to love this game.
