Looking for some calm songs for kids? These soft and melodic songs are sure to bring down the energy to help kids quiet thier minds and emotions. Whether you’re looking to use these calming kids songs as bed time tunes or just to enforce quiet time, know the whole family will love it!
With a 6 and 4 year old, and a 2 month old, life is pretty crazy in these parts. We’re constantly begging the boys to calm down a bit and quiet so their sister can sleep.
The problem is, they’re boys and they’re loud. As soon as they get amped, the noise is hard to cut down on.
This is why I’ve been enforcing a quiet time a lot lately. Nothing long of crazy, but an hour or so in their room playing LEGO and listening to soft, calming music.
