Activity: Calm Down Jars
Levels: All Staff, Elementary, Middle
Calm down jars can be incredibly soothing for students in difficult or stressful moments. Take a glass or plastic jar or bottle, and add water, glitter glue, and glitter. Have the students shake the container to watch the glitter slowly float to the bottom. Encourage them to practice deep breathing as the glitter settles. The calm down jar may be kept in convenient places as a quick relation tool.
