Looking for a bedtime hero? Try a bed box!

The Intro

If you have landed here looking for ideas for smoother, quicker and happier bedtimes then you are in the right place!

Click here to start a trail of six calming, happy bedtime activities, unless you are already on the trail of course. Either way this is number six of six! But I plan to keep going, so why not follow my blog by email.   Link on homepage….just need to work out how to put the link here!

 

Bedtime box is so easy to plan ahead! Its a place to put those stickers, colouring activities, fidget toys and/or bits of tat that never get used! Anything that could act as a good wind down basically. Simply pop it in the box.

If you have time by all means decorate it a bit but kids love decorating things so it maybe best just to leave it for their first “Bedtime Box” night.

The Plan

Tell them that they have a bedtime box to enjoy if they get ready quick enough for bed….I really recommend doing “Dotty Duvets” a couple of times first so that they are well versed in what is expected re getting ready quickly.

Then enjoy! Its a lovely chance to wind down a bit. As with dotty duvets, I’ve billed it to the kids as a way of swapping nagging for fun times.

What next?

In doing this trail, I have gone back and updated all of my bedtime related posts. Reading “Bedtime Bags” has reminded me of how things were and ow much they’ve improved. Wlst life with kids is always going to be messy, mixing things up a bit and adding a little twist can make all the difference. Please feel free to link and comment with other bedtime activities below.

We would love to hear from you in the comments!
