For a younger child, these glitter jars make a great sensory toy. Kids get enthralled watching the glitter swirl around. If your kids are a little older, the bottles can be used in conjunction with a time out or cooling off period. The child simply shakes the bottle up and watches all of the glitter fall to the bottom. This takes approximately 2 1/2 minutes to occur.
HOW TO MAKE CALMING JARS
- 16 oz water bottle with water or you can use these sensory bottles
- Glitter glue (we bought ours in a 3 pack at the dollar store – each bottle is 3oz)
- Glue gun
