Shake Your Mind Jar

Lexy and I are working on putting together a Calm Basket to help her when she has big feelings.  We found this idea on pinterest and thought it sounded cool.

We gathered our ingredients:

Plastic jar (we used an applesauce jar)
2 cups warm water
4 T. glitter glue (we used blue)
2-3 drops food coloring (we used blue)
extra glitter
bamboo stick/old spoon/whisk for stirring
hot glue

Put glitter glue in the jar.  Add the water and stir thoroughly.  Add food coloring and extra glitter and stir again.  Replace lid and shake jar, glitter should swirl and fall slowly to the bottom (add more glitter glue if it falls too fast).  Remove cap, put a bead of hot glue around the inside of the cap and replace cap.
