This Calming Jar tutorial from Robyn Oakenfold is brilliant ~ it's a more positive "time out" than sending them into a corner, to their bedroom etc. The child shakes the jar and watches the glitter settle back down at the bottom.

Of course you can always make a Calming Jar out of a plastic bottle instead of glass.
