Mind Jar How fun is this mind jar? I found this idea on a blog called Here We Are Together. She explains that "A Mind Jar is a meditation tool to use whenever a child feels stressed, overwhelmed or upset. Imagine the glitter as your thoughts. When you shake the jar, imagine your head full of whirling thoughts, then watch them slowly settle while you calm down". This can provide a nice alternative to a traditional timeout, and it encourages the child to refocus without punishing them…

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! wow this is such a good idea! if they mess with the bottle their time out time is longer. awesome idea!
