Glitter Jars for Practicing Mindfulness

Practicing mindfulness gives kids an opportunity to pay attention to what’s going on in their bodies and in their environment, which helps them learn to control their reactions and manage their emotions. A glitter jar is a simple but useful mindfulness tool. Watching the glitter swirl and settle gives kids time to calm down and regain control when they’re upset, and it has a relaxing effect even when their emotions are already under control!
