What is your favorite way to calm your kids down when you need a quiet moment?

My kids like to do art, but that can get messy too. I like for them to read or look at picture books, but I think their favorite thing to do is play with Play Dough.

  • When I need a quiet moment nothing works better than a good snack and a tv show. If I want a quiet moment with the kids then we color.

  • My kids think their cousin's Wii is so much fun. They like to do webkinz too, but then they start to argue over them computer since there are four of them and one computer.

  • When I need a quiet moment I turn their favorite video on in the playroom and put them both in there to play. That usually keeps them quiet for the duration of the movie. Or I put tehm down for a nap.
