Calming Jar Instructions


September 20, 2019

Young children have a hard time identifying how they are feeling and how to appropriately express these feelings. Many times young children will bite or hit out of frustration or have a hard time calming down after they have had an exciting day. This can be very frustrating for parents, caregivers and early childhood educators but these situations are all a learning opportunity for young children in how to identify and express their emotions. A calming jar can help children learn how to control their emotions and learn how to self-regulate. Do this activity with your child and allow them to decide the colors and add the ingredients?
