    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, watch the glitter settle, calm down :) What a good idea for kids (and adults too, haha)

    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!!

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!

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."

Time-out bottles. Fill a bottle with 3/4 water, one bottle of glitter glue, & ultra fine glitter. Then send this bottle with your child to timeout and they can watch it settle to calm them. Once the glitter is settled their time is up! wow this is such a good idea! if they mess with the bottle their time out time is longer... interesting

Have better time-outs! Oh, you're really upset? Hey look over here at this sparkly bottle. Shake it up. Watch it settle. All is calm and time-out is over! Now it's time to talk about what happened calmly.

@ ang: Time-out bottles. Fill a bottle with 3/4 water, one bottle of glitter glue, & ultra fine glitter. Then send this bottle with your child to timeout and they can watch it settle to calm them. Once the glitter is settled their time is up! wow this is such a good idea! if they mess with the bottle their time out time is longer. awesome idea! I like this better than a glass jar!

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.

Calm down jar. When a time out is needed the Calm Down Jar is taken out. They give it a good shake to help get out some frustration, and then they watch and wait for the glitter to settle to the bottom, that's when time out is over.

Great idea

"A Mind Jar is a meditation tool to use whenever a child feels stressed, overwhelmed or upset. Imagine the glitter as your thoughts. When you shake the jar, imagine your head full of whirling thoughts, then watch them slowly settle while you calm down".
