    I know a few kids who might like this. How long is time out? When all the glitter settles... A calm jar. I need one of these. You fill the jar with colored water and glitter. When you are upset you shake the jar and have to watch it until the glitter completely settles. The time it takes is enough time for you to settle your emotions. Ingenious.

    A 'calm down jar' - shake the jar and the child has to watch the jar until the glitter settles. great alternative to using 'time out' as calm down time. GREAT idea - gives them something to focus on. I'd use plastic though because glass + my kids = disaster.

    "Mind jar aka calm down jar"-shake the jar and the child has to watch it until the glitter settles. Great idea for calming down the hyper kids! Or an alternative to using "time out". I know I can use this for myself to free my mind from chaos/rush of real life when needed.

Glitter Calm Jars! (Used for anxiety, eating disorder recovery, self-harm and more). Shake and Enjoy!

Plus- who doesn't love glitter?

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

Calm Down Bottles for time out. Shake and the kids watch the glitter settle, then time out is over

The 'calm down' glitter jar The idea is that when the jar is shaken, the child is to sit and watch the glitter settle and when it has then they can resume whatever they are doing. Think of it as a cool time out or possibly an early intervention.

For when they need alone time! calming jar, instead of doing a "time out" get kids to sit at the table and shake their calming jar, then they sit there until all the glitter settles .. good distraction?

A time out jar. Shake it up then watch the glitter slowly fall to the bottom. When you are as calm as the glitter in the jar you can come back. Cute idea!
