    A Calm Down Jar. Shake the jar and the child has to watch the jar until the glitter settles. Good idea for children and adults!

    A Calm Down Jar. Shake the jar and the child has to watch the jar until the glitter settles. It would be great to link this idea with the colors of the Six Healing Sounds. For example, a blue glitter jar for the kidneys, breathing in peace and breathing out fear.

    a 'calm down jar' - shake the jar & the child has to watch the jar until the glitter settles. (use plastic jar so if it gets thrown in a fit of anger you don't have glitter everywhere!)How to make: Just mix 1 tablespoon of glitter glue, per 1 cup of hot water, add extra glitter (I used an extra small tub). A note: The first Mind Jar I made was red and Pix didn’t like it. She told me that red was “an angry color” and then requested a blue Mind Jar “because blue is like the happy ocean”.

    I love this idea: A calm jar. good idea for kids! You fill the jar with colored water and glitter. When you are upset you shake the jar and have to watch it until the glitter completely settles. The time it takes is enough time for you to settle your emotions.

Too cool down your kiddos, add a lot of glitter in a jar filled with water. Shake it, and tell them they have to look at it until nothing moves. Smart!!

Another "calming jar" idea: your kids shake the bottle and then have to watch it till the glitter settles to the bottom. This one has the advantage of being in non-breakable plastic bottles. Also, you can superglue the lids on, so the kids don't open the bottles and drink the glitter glue while they're "calming down."

Glitter Calm Jars! (Used for anxiety, eating disorder recovery, self-harm and more). Shake and Enjoy! The time it takes the glitter to swirl and settle back at the bottom of the jar is supposed to be enough time to calm an adult’s fried nerves or distract them from negative thoughts. Plus- who doesn't love glitter?

    As someone who suffers from extremely severe anxiety I can tell you that I would hurl this thing at a fucking wall if someone tried to have me look at it while I'm freaking out!!

DIY calm down jars...I tried a sensory bag recently and no matter what I did it leaked, like this much better :)

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!

Recycle Reuse Renew Mother Earth Projects: how to make a Calming Jar

For when they need alone time! calming jar, instead of doing a "time out" get kids to sit at the table and shake their calming jar, then they sit there until all the glitter settles .. good distraction?

Glitter Jar - use to help a child calm down from a tantrum. Have child sit still and watch the glitter fall to the bottom. Once glitter has settled, discuss the situation with the child.

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, theyve had time to calm down and talk about their problem. Its quite soothing actually
