WE LOVE THIS. It's called a "Calm Down Jar" and it's filled with glitter. Children shake the jar to get their frustrations out and then they’re asked to wait until the glitter has all settled in the bottom. By the time the glitter settles, hopefully so have they. To make, just fill 1/2 of a jar (preferably plastic) with glitter (maybe a color they like) and the rest with water. Screw lid on tight and you're all set!! WE KNOW SOME ADULTS THAT COULD USE THIS!
Maybe a new tradition for every year??? A Day In My Life: Birthday Interview. I like that its simple questions, like the handprint too. And this idea could be used for all ages - NOT just kindergarten! by ava
