Ever since we came back to Japan, Iki has always refused to take a nap, no matter how angry I would be. I tried to bring him on his bed and stay there together, but he still stayed awake after 2-3 hours. So I gave up, and stay awake with him the whole day. He sleeps early, like 9 p.m and I could have more free time afterwards though; but somewhat I feel exhausted to entertain him the whole day hahaha (and I lost my afternoon Billy Bootcamp exercise time now!!)
We have outdoor activity in the morning. Either swimming or playing at the park and daily shopping. Usually after lunch Iki had his nap, so now I have to find activities to replace this nap time.
So far this "A Bit Of This and A Bit Of That" blog is my main reference for good educative activities, but I can't say that I follow all of her Montessori method. I just take whichever I think are good and suitable for our situation here and there in the internet :p.
Some of them are:
And I think the list with get longer. Now I must spend my only free time at night to find or prepare activity ideas instead of doing my favorite free time activities *sigh*
Do you have any other idea on how to make your active toddler busy during the day?!
