Sometimes, I need to be quiet and slow down my activity. What can we do when I need to be quiet? How about looking at books, listening to recorded stories, or drawing pictures? I can grow my imagination and develop my language skills without my play being full of action. Keep supplies for quiet play handy, including a basket of books, blank paper, and crayons. Small toys that encourage my imagination that are not a choking hazard may be great to include, too.
