      Relax Bottle/Time Out Timer -- what a great idea! We have given up on timeout because she just screamed (like the Mom of this article said) maybe if I make one of these we could try it again! Thanks for posting Casey!

      ---Relax Bottle/Time Out Timer--- Use a smart-water, bottle. Fill each bottle with about 3/4 water, an entire bottle of glitter glue and a small tube of ultra fine glitter. Takes about 5 minutes to settle.

    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! if they mess with the bottle their time out time is longer...
