calm jars

I've seen these on the www a few times and since certain members of our household are prone to the odd 'wobbly' as my mum calls them, I thought they'd be useful.

1. Find a clean jar with a tight sealing lid
2. Fill to nearly the top with warm water ( ours took 3 cups)
3. add 2 small containers of glitter ( we also put some nearly finished glitter glue in)
4. add 2 heaped teaspoons of paste powder ( or already made clear water based craft glue)
5. add some food colouring
6. shake it- lots

The clear glue makes the water thick and you can see the glitter moving around slowly. The kids like watching it float and it's meant to calm them down as they do- we'll see!

  1. I've had one of these pinned on Pinterest for a while now, but was struggling to find the items needed (it was from a US blog) - this sounds so much easier! Hope it works for your little ones; thanks for the inspiration!
