      Relax bottle/ time out timer. Creative way to help your kid calm down. GREAT craft for kids...they are really cool...I don't know why you need glitter glue AND glitter AND glue though...pretty sure you could just use glue and glitter...

We have a collection of Go-to Sleep activities that are perfect for kids growing out of afternoon naps, but who still need some “down time” activities, but we don’t have something for bedtime.

    sparkle bottle tutorial (aka time out bottles, quiet time bottles, etc.)

    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.
