Kids settle down jar...Calm Down Jar This cute Time Out idea was on Pinterest and I decided I must make one! All I did was fill up a pint jar with water, 1 drop of blue food coloring and some glitter. I have whichever kid is doing time shake the bottle and watch it settle. Once the glitter has settled, theyve had time to calm down and talk about their problem. Its quite soothing actually

Calm down jar. Fill a jar with glitter and water. When kids are acting up tell them to shake it to get out their frustrations And then sit and watch it until all the glitter settles.

Calm Down Jar. Sometimes time-outs only cause a bigger eruption of emotions and never seem to work the way intended. A calm down jar can be a great tool. When a child needs a moment to herself (to put in nicely) I ask her to sit with her calm down jar for a few minutes, give it a good shake and come find me when she sees most of the glitter fall to the bottom.
