I have seen so many of those glitter calming jars for kids around the internet lately, and my first reaction is always, “But I want one for ME!” The swirling glitter in the jars is meant to focus the child’s attention to help them calm down and breathe. This is something from which I too could benefit, and I have a feeling there are others who are the same.
However, some adults might feel silly having a big mason jar of glitter sitting on their desk. (Not me, of course. My desk is always covered in glitter and glue strings.) If you work in a professional setting, I get why it might be weird. Nobody is going to bat an eye if you decorate your desk with a snow globe though. This calming jar is disguised as a typical snow globe, so you can keep it out in the open without shame.
This short video will show you how to put together your own snow globe calm jar. I chose not to add a decoration inside of the globe because I thought it would distract from the calming glitter, but you can easily super glue a small figurine to the base of the globe to create a traditional-looking snow globe.
