Calming Glitter Jars -- On the Go Lesson
When we understand our emotions and learn to be mindful of the way our body feels as we experience emotions, we equip ourselves to be the best versions of ourselves! This short activity will give you a new tool to add to your mindfulness toolbox: a calming glitter jar. Keep the jar nearby to help you stay calm and mindful throughout the day.

These To Go Lessons can be used to create a "grab and go" style activity with supplies included. Add your local contact information, print, and cut each sheet in half. The left side can be used on the outside of the paper bag or box to identify the activity, and the right side can be placed in the package as an instruction sheet.
