Calming Jar :: Time Out idea. Fill w/ hot water, add 1 tbs glitter glue, 3 tsp fine glitter, & a drop of blue food coloring. Have the child shake the jar & watch the glitter fall. When all the glitter has settled (and when the child has calmed down)
Make sure you use latex free balloons in case residents are allergic! Surprise your residents by filling in balloons with treats and leaving them at their doors while they're asleep! Great as stress relievers during finals.
