Keep your child happy with a DIY calm down jar!

The "calm down jar" is an object that was inspired by the Montessori method of education, which, as its name implies, helps children who are feeling agitated to slowly calm down. 

It consists of a glass jar filled with water, glue, and colored glitter. Once the jar is shaken the particles of glitter move in a downward motion which suggest to the child a similar 'lowering' of the tension and agitation. The child's attention is also drawn away from the whim or cause of agitation as the child focuses on the calm down jar held in their hands.

In this way, the child will return independently to a calm state and learn to relax without the intervention of their parents, which is the basis of the Montessori philosophy.
