Stormy's notes for this recipe:
A Mind Jar is a meditation tool to use whenever a child feels stressed, overwhelmed or upset. Imagine the glitter as your thoughts. When you shake the jar, imagine your head full of whirling thoughts, then watch them slowly settle while you calm down.

Also great for just quieting your mind

Personalize This


Mix 1 tablespoon of glitter-glue with about 1 cup of hot water

Then add food coloring and a tiny tub of glitter.

Tighten or glue lid back on tight.
The glue makes the water so thick and gooey that the glitter just slowly and gently swirls around, it takes about 5 minutes for all the glitter to settle, perfect to gather your thoughts!
