If your child could use an instant relaxation tool, try a glitter jar. Glitter jars, when shaken, create an appealing swirl of shiny bits that effortlessly works on children's focus, stress management skills, and emotion-regulation.
Glitter jars bring calmness, centeredness, focus, and attention, helping to ease issues such as hyperactivity, fogginess, irritability, and anxiety. Presenting a glitter jar during difficult problem-solving can be soothing and energy-shifting. Presenting a glitter jar during a break can be a re-focusing exercise, as shifting attention and keeping that attention strengthens concentration skills. Glitter jars are also great during a follow-up after a time-out, as the logical mind becomes distracted and kids become comfortable to open up.
