    Calm down 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!

    Cute idea for kids who need a "cool down" time. Mind 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, we finish our meditation. This one is a really great technique to use in lieu of timeout.

    mind jar: mixed 1 tablespoon of pink glitter-glue with about 1 cup of hot water, then added pink food coloring and a tiny tub of glitter.The glue makes the water so thick and gooey that the glitter just slowly and gently swirls around, it takes about 5 minutes for all the glitter to settle, perfect to gather your thoughts...great for kids in time out (or for therapy). When the glitter settles, we finish our meditation. This one is a really great technique to use in lieu of timeout.

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!

Ideas for part of a "calm down" basket for kids. It would be great to use this for adults, too.

LET'S EAT summer fun jar with Pinterest food pics printed, cut out, placed in and then drawn from the jar

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.

I'm thinking change "sit" to "stand," hands folded to hands at your sides, and "speaker" to forward. Perfect for when we leave the classroom.

'Calm Down Jar' - shake the jar and the child has to watch the jar until the glitter settles ~ Why didn't we have this when my son was little?

Time out glitter jar. Shake it up. When the glitter falls to the bottom, time out is over. It's calming to watch glitter too :) Source:http://creativelittledaisy.typepad.com/creative_little_daisy/2011/08/i-hope-it-works.html

Hmm, interested in the idea of mediation for kids. Something to calm down anger/fear/frustration etc
