This is a mindfulness jar. The glitter represents your thoughts and emotions. As the glitter settles and you sit still, notice your breath and your thoughts settling down, too.

Kids' settle down jar...Calm Down Jar This cute Time Out idea was on Pinterest and I decided I must make one! All I did was fill up a pint jar with water, 1 drop of blue food coloring and some glitter. I have whichever kid is "doing time" shake the bottle and watch it settle. Once the glitter has settled, they've had time to calm down and talk about their problem. It's quite soothing actually

Calm down jar. Fill up an old bottle with warm water. Add a drop or 2 or 3 of food coloring (blue is supposed to be calming). Add half a bottle of Elmer’s gel glue. Add any color and sized glitter you like. When a child is having a difficult time settling down, is throwing a fit, or just needs some time gather their thoughts, they can go to a special area in the room and use the calm down jar. They shake it up, set it down, and watch all the little pieces of glitter settle.

The Mind Jar is a meditation tool to use when you are stressed. When you shake the jar the glitter (your thoughts) are all over the place. Watch them slowly settle while you calm down. From blog, "Here We Are Together".

What a neat way to have your child take a break/time out to calm down. There have been multiple times in our house when this would have been very helpful!
