A time out jar. Shake it up then watch the glitter slowly fall to the bottom. When you are as calm as the glitter in the jar you can come back. Cute idea! Glitter Slowli, For Kids, Slowli Fall, Cute Idea, Food Coloring, Calm Down Jars, Mindfulness Jars, Glitter Jars, Glitter Settling

Time out bottles! Water, glue and glitter..mix and add until it takes 5 minutes to settle. Watching it settle relaxes them, and you don't have to set a timer! Brilliant!!
Timeout jar - Water, food dye, 2/3 container or tacky glue, and about several shakes of glitter (small flakes) *have child hold shaken jar during time out (helps sooth and makes timeout very clear) when glitter has sunk to the bottom timeout is over!
Calm Down Bins -- We have a Sensory Box filled with various fidget toys for Johnny. Using one or two of these in addition to other calming distractions (like the glitter jar) can make for a much easier time when trying to reign in emotions.
Idea by Katy Laser. Alternative for timeout. Mind Jar. 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, we finish our meditation. This one is a really great technique to use in lieu of timeout.
