Calming Jar- Tell the child that he/she needs a break and may return when everything has settled to the bottom of the jar. Perfect

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...
