How to Make Glitter Bottles for Mindfulness Moments
This term the children have been using glitter bottles in class during a mindfulness moment at registration times. The bottles have been used to help the children self-regulate and melt away their problems that are causing big emotions. They have proved very popular with children asking to use them at other times in the day.
Below are instructions on how to make one if you and your child would like to have one at home:
Plastic bottle, clear glue (we used Pritt transparent PVA), food colouring, glitter/sequins, water
Put glitter/sequins into the bottle (as much as you would like). Then add some food colouring and fill a sixth of the bottle with clear glue. Fill the rest of the bottle with warm water and add the lid. Give the bottle a shake for 1 minute to allow the glue to dissolve into the water. Your glitter bottle is now ready to use.
