Searching for colors during nature walks. I did this yesterday with the kids. I told them we were going on a scavenger hunt and that they had to find stuff on our walk that matched the colors in their tray. When we got back we glued our treasures to a piece of paper to take home and show to their parents. The kids thought it was great! I will do this again.
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.
