Reader Question: When do you do TBB and Do your kids really dance for an hour on "shake your sillies out"



I only do TBB 3x a week.  I try to do it when it fits in.  So if it is a quiet activity we do it then, if it is a crazy silly game we do it then.  I sometimes do it during our morning free play. What I do is make a list of activities I want to do and then if the day needs it, like if we just can be friendly to each other during free play, then I will pull out one activity.  It usually calms them down and focuses them. I love redirection. :)

My kids take turns during their crazy dance time. When it becomes warmer out we will use that time for outside backyard time, or riding bike time or some sort of physical activity.  They need it and I need it(the break) to prep dinner.  Other things might include pulling out the balls and let them play with that.  I find if I hold on to things and pull them out from time to time they get better use of them. They appreciate it more.  For instance we don't keep certain toys out just for days when we need to focus their attentions.  Hey look Mom is getting out the Mega Blox! Yes!
The same goes for outside toys.  I have also worked out an awesome toy rotation for the toy room and in the summer we bare bones the toy room because I would rather them be outside and having fun in the water or grass.

More on the rotation and toy check out later! 

Hope that Helps! :)
