Calming jar: tell child that they need a break and may come back when everything has settled to the bottom.

Calming jar-tell child that they need a break and may come back when everything has settled to the bottom - I think I love this idea. Better than a simple time out for temper tantrums. May even help when you juSt need to calm down.

Would be fun to do with kindergarten and senior picture for graduation!

side in kindergarten and side when they graduate high school. (whoever pinned this described it as an interesting kid picture idea - I realize this is Emma Watson and it's neither her kindergarten or grad pics lol)

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! if they mess with the bottle their time out time is longer
