@ ang:  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.

Glitter Jar - use to help a child calm down from a tantrum. Have child sit still and watch the glitter fall to the bottom.  Once glitter has settled, discuss the situation with the child.
