A Calm Down Jar. Shake the jar and the child has to watch the jar until the glitter settles. Smart! Wonder if this would work for my students?

Have better time-outs! Oh, you're really upset? Hey look over here at this sparkly bottle. Shake it up. Watch it settle. All is calm and time-out is over! Now it's time to talk about what happened calmly.

Time out bottles - calms the child as they watch the glitter settle, and also acts as a timer for time out.

    Supplies: -Jar (pb for school so it won't break) -Glitter Glue -Food Coloring -Warm Water Directions: Mix about 1 tablespoon of glitter glue with 1 cup of warm water...depending on the size of your jar. My jar was a bit bigger so I used 2 tablespoons of glitter glue and 2 cups of warm water. I also added some blue food coloring since my kids like the color blue. Note: The warm water is to help dissolve the glue. I had a hard time dissolving I heated the water up in a microwave safe cup for 30-60 seconds. While the water is warm...the glitter will fall quickly. I noticed that it only took about 3 minutes for the glitter to fall while the water was warm...but it took a little over 5 minutes to finish falling once the water cooled down. If you do use this as an alternative to time-outs and think 5 minutes is too long for your child, you should play around with the water and glue ratio.

"time out jar- shake the jar, when the glitter all settles you're done. Supposedly helps them concentrate on calming down while they watch the glitter..." I LOVE this idea!!!

Calm Down Jar - A creative approach to time-out. Child first shakes the jar to get their frustrations out, then they're asked to wait until the glitter has all settled on the bottom. That's when time-out is over.

Calm down jar - super easy to make. The purpose is to calm your kids when they are feeling out of control. They shake the jar, then sit and watch the glitter settle in the water. When the glitter settles, they can get up. This is a really great technique to use in place of timeouts.

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

Calming jar: tell child that they need a break and may come back when everything has settled to the bottom.
