I love the blog Lemon Lime Adventures, there are just so many fun things on this blog to read, make and do. The one I really wish I could have had today was the Lego Calm Down Jar! I just needed that soothing glittery take me away time the jar would have given me. Just the thought of shaking it up and watching it all settle is calming to me. I know for several children I have nannied for in the past it is a calming tool for them as well. Have you ever made a calming jar with your kids or nanny kids before? How did it work out for them?
They are calming. Okay, that was a given, I know. But really, Whether you are 2 or 92, a calm down jar brings you piece of mind. Its like being entranced under a magicians spell that can’t be broken. With the addition of our minifigure, the addiction just gets stronger. As many of you know, our family is taking a challenge for a more peaceful home. The calm down jar has been an invaluable tool. I challenge anyone to still want to yell after waiting for all the glitter to settle. (We put extra glitter glue, so you might have to wait a bit).
