Place your glitter glue, clear glue, glitter, and heart in the bottom of your mason jar.

You can use 2 tablespoons of glitter and glue or up to 3, depending on how thick you want your glitter in the jar.

Pour in your hot water and food coloring and stir well.

If glue and glitter clump up, place jar in microwave for 30 seconds and stir. Repeating until clumps are gone.

Fill jar the rest of the way with water to the rim.

Place hot glue on the inside of your jar lid, and screw lid on tight before glue dries.

Place jar in the fridge to cool.

Shake and let the kids enjoy.

When the crazy schedule, too much sugar, late nights, and overwhelm of the holidays hit your kids these calm down jars are a great way to help your children stop and refocus. I don’t know about you guys, but I might just need to keep one of these jars in my own room this holiday season. Christmas overwhelm can catch the whole family!
