DS1&2 are 2.5yrs old and 5. After lunch they usually have rest time on the couch. I will put a movie on for them.
In the morning we do other activities like: visit the library, swimming lessons, play inside, or we go shopping... depends on the day.
In the afternoon we either go to the park, play in the back yard or play inside.
They do have time to play on their own to in-between.
Sometimes they like to play for around 20min on the iphone or ipad (games), but I always say...ok it's time to play something else (e.g. Lego with me) or It's time for a snack, so put the ipad away.
Do others show a movie at rest time? Any other suggestions?
I love my free time to prepare dinner and catch up on some cleaning but feel guilty for the extra screen time!
EDIT: DS1 attends kinder (2 full days)
