How to Make a Calming Glitter Jar
by Hannah Milford, MA, LPC, LCDC, RPT on August 8th, 2016

  Emotional regulation isn’t something that comes easily to some children (or adults).  What can parents do to help their child learn to control their emotions? How about trying a calming jar?
  Calming jars are bottles filled with glitter and water used to help children take a moment to collect themselves during an emotionally turbulent time. Shaking the bottle and watching the glitter fall helps children settle down and become more peaceful and mindful.  It teaches children self-control, reflection and relaxation. 
  Check out the video below with counselor Hannah and her doggie assistant, Trixie. They are at Happy Camper Counseling to teach you how to build your own calming jar.
