There are often relatives in town, parties, gifts, SANTA and all kinds of fun holiday-related activities. It's easy for kids to become hyped up. If yours need a moment to calm down, this simple jar and its magical contents may do the trick.

We checked in at Chasing the Firefly after seeing Madge's neat project on Pinterest. To help her children keep calm she filleda canning jar with glitter glue, water and...more glitter.

The idea is that when the jar is shaken, the child is to sit and watch the glitter settle and when it has then they can resume whatever they are doing. Think of it as a cool time out or possibly an early intervention. Read more at Chasing the Firefly.
