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

The little boy I nanny has unbelievable tantrums that last upwards of an hour. So I came across a pin about a mind jar and thought this could work for him. When Liam is worked up I put him in time out with his settle down jar ( plastic not glass ) and he can shake it as much as he wants, when he is ready he watches the glitter settle At the bottom and is ready to come out of time out. This has really helped his hour long tantrums. Just glitter and water.
