    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.

A calm jar. I need one of these. 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.
