Big Bird’s Bedtime
Children can learn and practice strategies to help themselves fall asleep.
Watch this video with children, then act out some of Big Bird’s tips on how to fall asleep, such as snuggling under a blanket, putting his arm under his wing, breathing deeply, and making snore-y sounds! Then talk about what works for you both—a special pillow or blanket, a comfort item like a teddy bear, certain music, a nightlight, a book, and so on.
