George and I made calm down jars! I recently posted about a “calm down jar” and how to make one and I thought it would be a great idea to make one with George. Sometimes he gets a little frustrated or angry and needs some space to himself. When he starts to become angry to a point of not being able to control himself he takes the calm down jar and shakes it. He watches the glitter float around and begins to relax!
Materials: glitter glue, glitter, buttons, a jar, warm water, food coloring
3. Glue the top on- or screw it on tightly. Shake Shake Shake and watch the glitter go from chaos to calm in a matter of minutes.
Here is a Video on how to make a calm down jar (everyone makes them a little differently)
