I know that babies can get over stimulated and tired if they play to long but as they get older they sleep less and less. How do you keep them happy after play time without resorting to putting them in front of the tele?
My 3 year old daughter and I love to dance... so we put on our favorite music and dance like crazy for some time..and then we realize we are tired and need more energy, so we start cooking for our selves... Though my kid does not cook... she helps me by getting the spoons and bowls I ask for... Later, we have a story time, where I do not stick to the story books instead I enact short stories for her and she loves it.
