DS will be 3 in a few months and appears to be dropping his nap. I would like to start an afternoon period of quiet time, but am not sure how to get started with it. DS is a pretty spirited child, and though he needs to have some down time, he has trouble getting his little body to calm down enough to be still. I'm also not sure he would even understand the concept of quiet time.
If you do quiet time, how did you first set it up? Did you start with 10 minutes or so and work up to longer? What kind of activites do you have available for your child during that time? I've thought about doing Project Time instead of a quiet time, where we could work on a quiet-ish arts/craft project together.
