Lay Down Bedtime Game

I don’t know about you, but getting my boys settled for bedtime is not easy.  So, I came up with a game that would require them lying on their belly’s.  They lay on their belly’s and I draw a shape, letter, number or word on their back and they have to guess what it is.  If they get it right we do another one, up to five times.  I also take this time to talk about the day, and/or focus on the letter or word they learned that day.  They also love drawing something on Mommy and Daddy’s back too.  It doesn’t always keep them still, but it does let them rest and enjoy our time together.
