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
Time Out Jar. It is really easy to make. The goal is that 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 one is a really great technique to use in lieu of timeout.

Calming Jar :: Time Out idea. Fill w/ hot water, add 1 tbs glitter glue, 3 tsp fine glitter, & a drop of blue food coloring. Have the child shake the jar & watch the glitter fall.
