After the hustle and bustle of the holiday season, Festival of Sleep day is a day for catching up on rest and sleep! Take advantage of this day and take a nap, stay in bed, cuddle up, or just stay in your PJs all day!
Sleep Websites For Kids
There’s a great website www.sleepforkids.org that talks all about sleep:
- why we sleep
- how sleep works
- how much sleep do we need
- troubles sleeping
Check it out and learn more about sleep!
Also, Kids Health has lots of info on sleep. (My kids like the computer guy that reads the article aloud.)
Figure out what time your child should go to bed based on their age, and what time they need to wake up.
This day is also a perfect time to enjoy reading. Here are a few good books:
Go to Sleep, Russell the Sheep by Rob Scotton
Dreaming, A Countdown to Sleep by Elaine Greenstein
Little Fairy Can’t Sleep by Daniela Drescher
Sleep written by Charles Silvestri, illustrated by Anne Horjus
Listen to the music associated with the book, Sleep. Composed by Eric Whitacre.
