Calm Down Jars

February 1, 2017
The falling snow in NYC yesterday reminded us of glitter calm down jars,  used to promote emotion regulation in children. Simply mix warm water, some glitter glue, and food coloring into an empty water bottle or mason jar. Have your child shake the calm down jar and watch as the glitter swirls and settles to the bottom. As the glitter settles, have your child imagine their worries or frustrations settling too.
