Calming Glitter Bottles - so much fun to create! Ask parents to bring an empty but clean plastic container with a lid.supply glitter and cooking oil and create your own glitter bottles. The swirling glitter will calm and mesmerize even fussy kiddos!
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. some days I think that I need a calming jar.
