Welcome to the third edition of Quiet Time Tuesday, a place where we share ideas for implementing a quiet time with your child after they outgrow their need for a nap.
First, we shared how we use quiet time bins to help our 5-year-old (and sometimes her 4-year-old brother) play quietly and independently for an extended time every afternoon.
Then, last week, we sent you to Toddler Approved to read Kristina’s great ideas about offering quiet time choices and teaching your child to play independently.
Today, I’d love for you to visit Jenae, at I Can Teach My Child. In her post, What To Do When Naptime Ceases, Jenae explains how she combined “room time” and “quiet boxes” when her son outgrew his afternoon nap. Jenae also gives a look inside and a detailed list of the contents of each of her 5 quiet boxes.
Be sure to join us back here next week for a Quiet Time Tuesday inspired giveaway that’s perfect for Jenae’s something to listen to quiet box requirement.

Great ideas! My daughter hasn’t taken a nap since she was 3. She is 5 now and I wish I would have thought of this before. Thanks for sharing at Mom’s Library!
We’ve done something similar with our little ones — They are 5 and 3 now and love their quiet time boxes!

Oh man – I’m going to have to keep these in mind! I’m so dreading the day that naptimes end around here. 🙂
