The concept of a quiet time is highly encouraged for children. Researchers found that children who have quiet time are less irritable and have longer attention span. They also learn how to regulate their own emotions.
One way to encourage children to continue having a quiet time is by providing them activities which are non-stimulating such as puzzles and Quiet books. With the toddlers’ ceaseless energy, the little minds need time to recharge. The latter was a very useful tool for me when I was still a preschool teacher in keeping the kids who don’t take a nap occupied.
A Quiet book contains several fabric pages filled with engaging activities. Unlike electronic gadgets, Quiet book provides many valuable skills for intellectual and creative development without adverse side effects. The benefits include fine motor skills, problem solving, eye coordination and hand dexterity, concentration, logical and mathematical concepts, spatial imagination, creative skills, sorting and matching, and practical life skills such as buttoning, shoe lace tying, zipping, and bow tying.
Conversely, Quiet book can also be used to keep a child occupied during doctor’s visit, church and travel.
