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, they've had time to calm down and talk about their problem. It's quite soothing actually

This is a mindfulness jar. The glitter represents your thoughts and emotions. As the glitter settles and you sit still, notice your breath and your thoughts settling down, too.

Mind Jar -- meditation tool for all ages: "when stressed, overwhelmed, or upset, imagine the glitter as your thoughts/emotions. when you shake the jar, imagine your head full of whirling thoughts/emotions. then watch as they slowly settle together, and you calm down."

The Mind Jar is a meditation tool to use when you are stressed.  When you shake the jar the glitter (your thoughts) are all over the place.  Watch them slowly settle while you calm down.  From blog, "Here We Are Together".

Made my own 'calm down jar' with a voss bottle I bought home from Florida. I used 2 cups of warm water and 1 tube of silver glitter glue (works out roughly 1 tablespoon per cup) and then I just added some extra blue glitter. It takes about 5 minutes to all settle which is plenty of time for Jackson to calm down!
