Activities for When You’re Tired

As you listen to the music, encourage your kids to engage in relaxing, quiet activities like:

  • Preschool and Early Elementary Age: Fine motor activities like these are great quiet-time activities for kids.
  • Middle School Age and Older: Print off some intricate coloring pages from this site. Bonus, coloring pages are also a great tool to help calm and focus your mind when you’re feeling anxious.
