A Special Soft Sleepytime Blanket Kids blankets that are delightfully snuggly and scrumptiously soft are bound to make your little ones look forward to bedtime. Keep a blanket especially for bedtime to help them link the blanket with going to bed. Use a different blanket for watching TV with or simply snuggling up to read a book or play on the iPad. 2. Sleep Music for Kids Sleep music for kids is a delightfully pleasant way to make winding down for the evening easy and effortless.
