I first saw this great idea on Pinterest (where else?) “Quiet Time Bins” from Holistic Homemaking and I’ve pinned it in For My Boys board.
(Had to quickly double check I had spelt all the days correctly … all good!)
Then I searched Pinterest for more ideas to place in the Quiet Time tubs.
First one is this Duplo Blocks Counting & Tower Matching Busy Bag by All Our Days who has a free download printable busy bag file.
Then today, while working on stuffing My Teeny-Tiny Dolls®, I was multi-tasking and “researching” on Pinterest. Here are 2 more ideas that caught my eye.
Clothesline Busy Bag idea from Money Saving Mom. I cut up these dresses, t-shirts, shorts and pants from a template provided here
And a quick and easy one, Bead Stringing with pony beads and pipe cleaners – idea from Motherhood on a Dime.
I also want to make this one next – Button Snake
So raiding the kids toy boxes for toys they haven’t looked at for a while and small books and slowly but surely, I’m filling up each day with at the least, a good half hours worth of “quiet time” activities..
