Calming jar-tell child that they need a break and may come back when everything has settled to the bottom - I think I love this idea... Better than a simple time out for temper tantrums.

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. << not a half bad idea...
