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.

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. << not a half bad idea...

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.

Secretly have every teacher (from Pre-k to senior year) sign this book, and give to your child as a surprise on their graduation.
