This is for my son G to help him regulate better when he’s very hyped up or angry. My intense little guy just doesn’t know how to stop. The idea behind these is that they can get up from calm down corner when the glitter settles. If they get angry and throw it then of course it’ll mean a longer sit time. Gosh I hope glue works to keep this cap on.
Here’s me going crazy with too much…
Because I ended up with so many different bottles, I decided to have a “race” and time to see how long each one took to settle. I wrote on a paper 1-2-3-4-5 and shook each one, recording what time I shook each and then what time the glitter had mostly settled.
Here they are settled:
Here is a link to our calm down corner that we’ll keep these in.
Update: This worked really well to calm down my son after a tantrum, even though I hadn’t used it as intended. Problem? He dropped it (accidentally) and the cap popped off. We’re going to apoxy these shut, but hadn’t gotten to it. I gave him to the prenatal vitamins bottle thinking that he wouldn’t be able to get the childproof caps off. I’m not sure if he got the cap off and that’s why it came off so easy when it fell or if it just hit the floor just right. Either way, it wasn’t as horrific to clean up as I imagine… it fell on my hardwood floors. If it had fell on the carpet it might not have popped open.
