calm-me-down jar aka mind jar. (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. We personally don’t use time-outs in our home but I imagine that this might be a nice alternative to something like that, and certainly more fun than sitting on a chair!)
