Making Mindfulness Jars

Sarah and Shelly have been coming this term and taking us for Mindfulness.
Doing Mindful breathing, moving and eating can help us to calm our minds. 
Mindfulness can help us if we feel worried or upset.

We made mindfulness jars.
We put some water with a little glue powder into the jars, added some food colouring, then sprinkled lots of big and little glitter in.
Finally, we glued around the lids before screwing them onto the jars.

When we shake the jars the water and glitter acts like a snow storm. 
The glitter represents our busy thoughts. 
Just as the glitter settles to the bottom of the jar, our thoughts can settle and become quieter.

What do you do to settle your thoughts?
Have you done Mindfulness?
