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
