Time-out bottles. Fill a bottle with 3/4 water, one bottle of glitter glue, & ultra fine glitter. Then send this bottle with your child to timeout and they can watch it settle to calm them. Once the glitter is settled their time is up! wow this is such a good idea! if they mess with the bottle their time out time is longer... interesting
Fun to make for each child!
Take a picture of the first and last day of school to see how much they change over the year. Love how the dates are on there too.
Ok, I like the chalkboard paint trend just as much as the next person, but there is a limit people. Ya'll realize chalk is messy right? It smears and smudges, and chalk dust gets everywhere. So unless this notebook never ever goes anywhere and just sits on a table literally all the time, everything you write will rub off, and all your stuff will be dusty.
DIY: chalkboard notebook
Start on January 1st with an empty jar. Throughout the year write the good things that happened to you on little pieces of paper. On December 31st, open the jar and read all the amazing things that happened to you that year. I'm going to do this!
