A calm jar. I need one of these. You fill the jar with colored water and glitter. When you are upset you shake the jar and have to watch it until the glitter completely settles. The time it takes is enough time for you to settle your emotions. Ingenious.
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
Keep Calm and Glitter On: Use Glitter to Settle Kids Down Chasing The Firefly
The 'calm down' glitter jar The idea is that when the jar is shaken, the child is to sit and watch the glitter settle and when it has then they can resume whatever they are doing. Think of it as a cool time out or possibly an early intervention.
