I have 2 ideas for a quiet time activity for your kids. Whether it be the Dr.'s office, airplane, church or whatever.

The first are the Peek a Boo bags. These are also called I Spy Bags, but I the company I like is Peek a Boo and they are only $15 as opposed to some Etsy sellers that are around $30. They have a list of items and then your child searches through the plastic beads to find each item. They make a girl version, a boy version, and an alphabet version that has an item to go with each letter of the alphabet. They are sold online and at over 300 retailers nationwide.

The second item are these portable magnet boards make by Tika Kids. They have an etsy shop and you will see them in various boutiques in Utah. They sell a bunch of different options to use on the magnet board as well as some puzzles of Jesus. At first I wasn't sure if I wanted my child playing with a cut up picture of Jesus but I decided that it is better to have them thinking about Christ in church than super heroes so I gave in. The boards are only $10.
