It has magnet activities, a trace the letter book, picture books, stuffies, crayons and coloring book and a little wallet to store trinkets in. This basket works well because at the end of each Quiet Time, Hannah knows to put her things back inside this basket. Eventually, we will get a little tape/cd player to put in her room so that we can play a story tape for her while she's in there for at least a part of the allotted alone time. I also want to get a digital clock that I can put on her night stand, where I can tape the number "4" to match up with the number 4 on her clock. This will help her to know when she can come out of her room so that she won't holler or bang on walls to get attention!
So far, so good! I'd like to know-what do those of you with children use for your Quiet Times? How long do you make those times?
