Time out bottles! Water, glue and glitter..mix and add until it takes 5 minutes to settle. Watching it settle relaxes them, and you don't have to set a timer! Brilliant!!

Discovery in a Bottle: I decided to also use the Voss water bottles. It is worth it for the long term use of the bottles. They are very sturdy, no ridges like most bottled waters, and are easier for little curious minds to view what's inside them.
The Mind Jar is a meditation tool to use when you are stressed. When you shake the jar the glitter (your thoughts) are all over the place. Watch them slowly settle while you calm down. From blog, "Here We Are Together".
Timeout jar - Water, food dye, 2/3 container or tacky glue, and about several shakes of glitter (small flakes) *have child hold shaken jar during time out (helps sooth and makes timeout very clear) when glitter has sunk to the bottom timeout is over!
