    "Mind jar aka calm down jar"-shake the jar and the child has to watch it until the glitter settles. Great idea for calming down kids! Or an alternative to using "time out".

    This 'grown up' needs one!!! Create a glitter jar as a "time out" to calm down a crazy kid (or oldster). Shake jar, take a time out to watch glitter settle and hopefully your crazies, too.

    A 'calm down jar' - shake the jar and the child has to watch the jar until the glitter settles. great alternative to using 'time out' as calm down time. GREAT idea - gives them something to focus on. I'd use plastic though because glass + my kids = disaster.

    Time out jar! Fill a jar with glitter and water and when a kid gets upset, tell them to shake the calm jar and stay seated until all the glitter settles at the bottom. Great idea! Love it!!
