Quiet Bins

Just check out Pinterest and you will see tons and tons of Quiet Bin/Box ideas.  Types of bins, contents of bins, labeling of bins and so much more!  I was ultimately inspired by Teaching Mama and her post that you can read by clicking on the link and as a bonus FREE printables for your Quiet Time Bins/Boxes.

I haven't put these bins to use yet but plan on it this upcoming week.  My 3.5 year old has not been napping for well over a year now and I would like her to have some time where she can play by herself with little to no supervision from me.  My plan is to rotate the toys after about 2 weeks and use toys that my daughter does not normally play with.

Here's what I included in the bins:

These printables can also be found at Teaching Mama

I found these cute Sesame Street books after I had filled the bins and added one to each bin.  

I hope this post helps inspire you to make some Quiet Time Boxes/Bins for your little one(s)!


  1. Love all of these ideas. My kiddos are a little bit older, so I think I will use your ideas as inspiration to tailor some to their interests and ages. Love this!

  2. Corinne, that's great! I even thought about putting some together for my 8 year old! Thank you for stopping by!!!!

  3. Great ideas!!! My youngest are 4 and 3. They go to nursery 2.5 days a week, but when their at home it's chaos!! I really need to make myself some of these quiet bins.
