    Calm Down Jar. It is really easy to make. The goal is that when they are feeling out of control, they shake the jar, then sit and watch the glitter settle in the water. When the glitter settles, they can get up. This one is a really great technique to use in lieu of timeout. Oh man, I can think of about 5-7 kiddos in Vancouver who are going to be shaking their glitter jar by next week!

    mind jar: mixed 1 tablespoon of pink glitter-glue with about 1 cup of hot water, then added pink food coloring and a tiny tub of glitter.The glue makes the water so thick and gooey that the glitter just slowly and gently swirls around, it takes about 5 minutes for all the glitter to settle, perfect to gather your thoughts...great for kids in time out (or for therapy). When the glitter settles, we finish our meditation. This one is a really great technique to use in lieu of timeout.

    Cute idea for kids who need a "cool down" time. Mind Jar. It is really easy to make. The goal is that when they are feeling out of control, they shake the jar, then sit and watch the glitter settle in the water. When the glitter settles, we finish our meditation. This one is a really great technique to use in lieu of timeout.
